A summary of match report, with thanks
Griffith full-forward Brent Arho is in doubt for Sunday's elimination final after being reported in the Swans' final round win over Turvey Park.
Arho was reported for striking as Griffith rounded out their preparation for finals with a 14.11 (95) to 7.12 (54) win over Turvey Park at Exies Oval. The Swans are confident there is nothing in the report and Arho will be free to face Coolamon in Sunday's elimination final at Robertson Oval. Everything else went well for Griffith, who were made to work for the win.
Ash Verhagen (hamstring) and Luke Shannon (knee) played no part in the second half for precautionary reasons but will be fit to face Coolamon. Griffith coach Adrian Pavese was pleased with the final round hit-out.
"Turvey were good, really good, they came to play and took the game on," Pavese said. "It took us half a game to shake them off, but I was happy with the win." Griffith's Mick Duncan was best-on-ground, while Toby Blissett and Jack Rowston were good.
