Thank you. Collingwood ruckman

Darren Jolly says he'll have a

better idea of whether he can play

in the Grand Final when he attempts

to run at training on Wednesday.

Team mate Ben Reid is considered a

better chance to line up. While

Geelong's Steve Johnson is working

around the clock get his knee right

for Saturday. It's the most talked

about groin in football, but Darren

Jolly remains optimistic he can

beat the odds and take to footy's

biggest stage on Saturday.

We'll have to have a chat with the

doc but we should be right to train

by Wednesday. Ben Reid arrived at

Pies head quarters with scans under

his arm, his injury not believed to

be as serious as Jolly's. In the

end it will come down to a decision

by the players. After Friday, that

is. But they have said they are

okay. We will monitor them later in

the week. No sign of Stevie Johnson

down at Geelong today, but the

enigmatic cat is doing everything

in his power to be ready for the

big dance. He has been in Melbourne.

He will try to get up for the game.

If Stevie Johnson doesn't play,

there may yet be a fairy tale

finish for Darren Milburn or even

Cam Mooney.

He's preparing himself to play in a

Grand Final this week. Don't expect

that to change until the end of the

week either. As far as fairy tales

go, the J Pod's incredible story

continues. I sat in the stands

previously. When my career's over I

might pinch myself. I am loving it

at the moment. I've worked hard. I

feel like I've earnt my spot.
