Summary/Images by: Tracy C/Emily
Toadie watching Callum and leaving thinking he is happy but misses Callum telling his cousin he hates it and wants to go home.
Steve rallying the footy team from his hospital bed.
Ringo and Declan begrudgingly wishing each other good luck for the game.
With the slow-mo going great guns, the guys run out onto the field with the girls providing the cheerleading. Ringo gives a last minute rally call before they run through the banner ripping it to shreds which ironically has 'let it rip' on it.
The guys' attention is drawn to Paul walking onto the field to introduce some real AFL footy people - Geelong Cats players Tom Lonergan and Shannon Brynes. A scout is introduced too (Nathan Blake) and the new temporary (but rather famous) AFL coach Tom Haffey who gives a final pep talk before they break to take up their starting positions.
Rebecca is having trouble getting a reception on the radio but eventually Lou gets a signal and is told to stay where he is!
The Dingoes win the toss and the siren blows to indicate the game can start so the ref throws the ball into the air.
Steph is relived when Kelly comes in because everyone else is at the oval although she doesn't exactly give out the warmth when Toadie enters too and she finds out that Kelly is Callum's teacher. Toadie informs them that Callum is happy in his new place and calls a halt to the ladies arguing over Kelly's actions in Callum leaving before he and Kelly leave to go for something to eat.
To Steve (and Lou's) annoyance, Didge finds their stash of hidden food but all that is forgotten when the commentator says that Declan has gone down.
Declan comes to but declares himself fit to carry on.
Rebecca wants to head to the oval to give who decked Declan a piece of her mind but the others stop her and instead Didge volunteers to head there instead.
The Dingoes are behind and Ringo orders Declan to take a breather but he again wants to carry on. Susan earns the scowl of her boss when she tries to interview the coach mid-game.
Fast forward a bit and the Dingoes still losing, missing marks and being pulverised by the Eden Hills Bears. Declan begins to lose his cool and the coach hooks him much to his annoyance.
On the sidelines, Paul does his best to say that Declan isn't normally this bad but as the saying goes a picture tells a thousand words to the AFL scout watching on the sidelines.
Steph is ranting off at Libby about Kelly but Libby isn't listening to her friend and reminds Steph that Toadie was the one who sent Callum away.
STEPH: She pushed him into it.
LIBBY: (laughing) I think you're jealous. Do you think he's got a new go-to girl?
STEPH: You're just trying to stir me up because you're miserable without Dan.
LIBBY: (turning her nose up) That's not true.
STEPH: Really? How many times have you looked at your mobile lately?
Lib reminds Steph that this chat is about her and jokingly ticks Steph off that she can't have a go at her while her child is away... but Steph is fair game! "Pity I've got paperwork" Steph quickly replies before scurrying off.
Dingoes Den
Didge is relived to see that Declan is alive and well even if he is moaning about not being outside playing. She tells him to stop being a star and to focus on the next kick and listens in as Ringo reminds the team what they've not been doing as they enter for the half-time break.
RINGO: (looking at Declan) Stop worrying about who's watching or where you're going to be next year. All that matters right now is the next two quarters.
Declan doesn't like what Ringo has just said and gets up from the bench to push Ringo in the chest before Didge intervenes to prevent him doing anything else.
Lucas comes out of the changing room to chat to the cheerleaders.
LUCAS: Do I get my own private cheer if we win?
ELLE: Only if you wear the outfit.
Rachel spots Ty needing some help with the refreshments and runs over to help him.
Donna tries to enrol Didge into cheerleading when she comes out of the changing rooms saying that Declan hates her and he ignores her saying she loves him when the team head back out onto the field.
Tom issues a new rallying call to the players and that they can win if they play to their strengths.
Miranda gets the radio tuned in again as Rebecca brings good news that Declan's been cleared by the doctor to play on.
The Dingoes are still getting thrashed but Lucas scores a goal to cut the deficit after some good work by Declan which earns him the respect of his team mates and the watchers on the sidelines.
The nerves are getting to everyone as the scores are getting closer until it's less than a goal between them (8.9. 57 against 9.7. 61).
Elle encourages the cheerleading squad to "kick and smile" while the watchers on the sidelines have serious looks on their faces.
The gathered at the hospital listen as Ringo passes to Declan who scores a goal and back at the oval, Lucas congratulates Declan for scoring and tells him its good to have him back as they return to their half of the field.
Ringo takes a mark which the watchers on the sidelines like the look of and as play continues, Declan scores again which gets a cheer from those listening at the hospital.
There is 3 points in it (9.10. 64 against 10.7. 67) as we head to the next commercial break.
Break over and we see nervous faces as the game continues.
Oh no the siren has gone but Declan is allowed to go for goal as he took his mark before the siren. Can he do what Paul McClain failed to do in 2001 and score?
LUCAS: He's too far out to score.
RINGO: He's cost us the season.
The tension mounts as Declan calms his nerves as he lines up the shot. Unlike Paul or Geelong Cats in the recent AFL Grand Final, Declan doesn't miss but scores and cue mass celebrating amongst the Erinsborough Dingoes supporters in the crowd and at the hospital as they win the Grand Final.
Paul congratulates the team and Tom hands over the trophy to the winning Dingoes.
In the mist of the celebrating and while he is trying to talk to his mum, Donna has a go at Declan for not passing to Ringo (who is walking off the field alone).
Toadie is back in with Kelly and Libby can't resist a subtle dig at Steph about her being jealous before she heads over to serve them. Kelly tells Toadie to get a table and she'll bring over the beers.
KELLY: If I didn't know better I'd say you were jealous.
STEPH: (trying to show she isn't) Toadie's a big boy; he can hang out with whoever he wants.
Kelly concludes that Steph is jealous because Toadie "came out" as being gay while with her and so felt rejected. Steph doesn't dispel her theory of Toadie being gay (and in a relationship with Dan) and tells Kelly that the beers are on her as way of an apology for being grouchy when she was in earlier.
Last break over and its party time as the Dingoes team arrive to celebrate. Rebecca tells Declan not to give her heart failure again for scoring in the final minute. One of the AFL watchers is having a word with Ringo out of earshot and Declan is pulled over too.
The scout has a go at him for being reckless "but a good pre-season with an AFL team will get you thinking straight". Declan is stunned at getting a card from the scout but once its sunk in, he heads over to hug his mum and at the other side of the bar we see a glum Ringo.
