The one question mark for the Demons

The Demons have had a record this season of beating up on weak teams but struggling against top sides. But in their final against Geelong, Melbourne showed just how much they can tighten up behind the ball.

Their first final in 12 years brought up plenty of positives for the Dees, but there's one question mark going into their do-or-die semi-final with Hawthorn.

This week on The Age Real Footy Podcast, Michael Gleeson, Caroline Wilson, Jake Niall and Jimmy Bartel ask: can Melbourne fix their disorganised forward line?

We also discuss what the Hawks should do at the selection table to give themselves the best chance to beat Melbourne, the importance of returning players - and the ones who might miss - for the semi-finalists, and where the Pies can improve as they get set to face the Giants.

Also this week, Toby Greene's marking style has been a talking point and while it's not a good look, at the moment, it's not the player who needs to change.

Plus, the AFL has made a mistake with its "insincere" finals fixturing, whispers that could confirm Lachie Neale's move away from Fremantle, why Brayden Sier needs to use extra tape on game day and much more.
