VFL Semi Final Team: Essendon vs Werribee

Werribee could go into Sunday’s all or nothing semi-final clash with Essendon unchanged after naming a settled squad.

The same 23 that knocked reigning premiers Box Hill out of the finals race have retained their spot in the 27-man extended squad, with ruckman Jack Berry the only addition.

Werribee enter this semi-final encounter on a six-game winning streak, while Essendon have lost four on the trot including last week’s qualifying final against Richmond after leading by 40 points at three quarter time.

Mark Williams’ side will be out to secure a preliminary final berth for the first time since 2013, which coincidentally was the last time they played the Bombers in a VFL final - the result a 19-point Werribee win in a high-scoring elimination final.

These two sides met in round 13 at Avalon Airport Oval with the Bombers kicking two goals in the final minutes of the game to clinch a narrow win, after a one-point thriller the year before.
