AFL North West: The Run To The Finals | Podcast, photos

Welcome to The Run To The Finals. Your one stop shop for the latest on the AFL North West competition.

Each week journalist/Gunnedah Bulldogs backman Billy ‘The Wall’ Jupp will sit down with sports journalist/new Tamworth Swans recruit Ben ‘Step Ladder’ Jaffrey to discuss the weekend’s happenings.

This week, the pair went head-to-head on the field on Saturday with the Swans hosting the Bulldogs.

The two gibberers will discuss that game along with the Nomads-Eagles clash and the Saints-Roos match.

Along with the podcast, the pair will compile the latest results, ladders and goalscorer lists as well as photos from the latest round.

This week, a gallery from various matches over the first 13 rounds have been compiled together to make up for lost time.

We’d also love to see your photos, too. If you have any you’d like included in future editions of The Run To The Finals, you can send them to or
