Meath's Nash loses out with Hawthorn, Laois and Kerry duo in action tomorrow as AFL finals begins

Conor Nash, Zach Tuohy and Mark O’Connor are all hoping for a happy end to their season.

THERE’S PLENTY IRISH interest to keep an eye as the 2018 AFL finals series began today but there was disappointment for Meath’s Conor Nash as his Hawthorn side lost out to Richmond.

Simonstown Gaels club man Nash, who signed a new two-year contract with Hawthorn recently, kicked a goal in his team’s defeat but the result does not end their interest in the end of season fare.

While Richmond advance to the first preliminary final on 21 September, Hawthorn will face a semi-final tie on 14 September against Melbourne or Geelong.

That game takes place tomorrow in the first elimination final with Portlaoise native Zach Tuohy selected for Geelong in what will be his 168th AFL appearance, while Dingle’s Mark O’Connor will also see action as he is included as an interchange.

Tuohy will have happy memories from Geelong’s most recent game against Melbourne when he scored a dramatic, late match-winning goal.
