Who will book a spot in the 2018 Grand Final?

THE BLOCKBUSTER preliminary final clash between Richmond and Collingwood will feature more of the top-100 players in the competition than any other game in this finals series so far. 

Looking at the Schick AFL Player Ratings, which are compiled by Champion Data and consider an individual's past 40 matches over a rolling two-year period to assess performance, 16 of those who run on to the MCG on Friday night will be ranked in the top 90. 

To put that into context, next best on the list is the qualifying final that saw the Tigers beat Hawthorn, with 15 in the top 100. 

Richmond will be led by the AFL's No.1 player in Dustin Martin, while the Magpies will hope their ruckman Brodie Grundy, who is ranked fifth, can dominate Toby Nankervis (No.63).
