The 33-year-old has won premierships in the Victorian Football League (VFL) and AFL Canberra but Sunday’s decider at Robertson Oval will be something different altogether for the Leeton-Whitton junior.

Conroy has spent the past two seasons travelling from Canberra with a few mates to play for his junior club.

To play for the Crows in a grand final is something he hoped to achieve.

“It’s probably what I was aiming for,” Conroy said.

“The plan was to come back and try to get the club a bit of success. We’ve given ourselves a chance, now we’ve got one to go.”

Conroy said the opportunity to return to Leeton-Whitton and play has been worth the travel.

“It’s one of those things you start to appreciate once you’re a bit older,” he said.

“It’s been pretty special to play in front of family and friends, and people from the club that were involved back when I was a kid.”

Conroy has led the way this year for the Crows and that was highlighted by Tigers’ decision to have Lahn Shephard tag him in the second semi-final.

Conroy expects a ‘shadow’ again on grand final day.“I’m not sure it will be (Shephard) but I kind of expect someone to shadow me,” he said.

“I’ll have to work a way around that and we will try a few different things to open me up a bit.

“Some of their players we will have to worry about as well and try to shut down.”
