Brisbane Lions legend Simon Black is no stranger to September footy - and he's picked his winner for the 2017 finals series.

Joining Marto, Ed & Robin on Triple M Brisbane this morning, Black was asked by Greg Martin if Richmond was the underdog story that he would be getting behind.

"I am a little bit, I must say," Black said.

"But I've been on the Giants all year - they haven't been in the greatest of form the last couple of months.

"They managed to get through on the weekend so I'm going to stick with them to go all the way through to the Grand Final.

"I think they're going to find a way to beat Richmond and then get it done a week later."

Black will be speaking at the Brisbane AFL Grand Final Luncheon next Thursday 28th September at City Hall.

The event will feature great Grand Final Moments of stars David Kernahan, David Parkin and Black and tickets are available from
