AFL grand final: Geelong blitz Sydney to claim premiership for the ages

Geelong has firmly silenced critics who doubted their aging list would win a Premiership, beating Sydney by 81 points in the AFL Grand Final.

The Cats had the oldest team in the league’s 126-year history on Saturday but were in the running with a 20.13 (133) to 8.4 (52) win in front of 100,024 fans at the MCG.

It was the first decider in football’s homeland in three years after two seasons were impacted by the global pandemic.

The Cats’ 10th flag was their second under Chris Scott and first since 2011, after a heartbreaking run of five preliminary finals losses and one major finals loss two years ago.
