Now they get serious. Fremantle took a week off in the last round of the regular season but it's full steam ahead from now on, starting with their much talked about trip to Geelong next Saturday.
There's no arguing that the Cats at Simonds Stadium is a far greater test than up the road in Melbourne. Can Ross Lyon work his magic to an even greater extent and guide the Dockers to possibly their best win?
It's hard to say if Geelong's struggle against the Lions was a cause for concern or if they simply switched off, knowing they had second spot sewn up.
Hawthorn will be sweating on Buddy Franklin's availability against Sydney after he was reported against the same team, while Carlton grabbed the bonus finals spot after getting over Port Adelaide.
Out of the finals, West Coast wrapped up an awful season with possibly their worst display against the Crows.
So plenty of issues Channel 7's Adrian Barich to discuss as part of the The Wash Up today from 10.30am.
