Off the back of finishing the regular season first and second respectively, the Reds and Wanderers met in the 2015-2016 grand final with Adelaide claiming a 3-1 win.

As a result, 'Fozz' decided to exclusively go with Adelaide and Western Sydney players in defence, with Isaias also featuring in the midfield.

Socceroos star, and now-Huddersfield midfielder, Aaron Mooy got the nod in the midfield along with Johnny Warren Medalist Diego Castro.
