It is a much feted victory, a long time in the making, as its been thirty seven years since the Tigers last Premiership. A fairytale win, akin to the Western Bulldogs 2016 great victory over the marauding Sydney Swans. A repeating tale of underdog Victorian team wins against much favoured Interstate rival.

The crows gallant in defeat will return to  Adelaide minus the holy grail, the 2017 Premiership Cup, as this year it remains firmly entrenched in the local Victorian hands.
