Who's playing in the Grand Final?

Brisbane and Melbourne will face off in the season seven decider. The two strongest sides of the season, just 0.3 per cent separated the Lions and Demons on the ladder at the end of the home and away season. The Lions finished atop the ladder, and therefore earned the right to host the big game. It's Melbourne's second Grand Final of the year, with the Dees falling short of the ultimate glory in season six earlier this year.
