Veteran West Coast winger Andrew Embley has urged his teammates to seize the moment against Collingwood in tomorrow night's semi-final at the MCG. "I've been playing footy way too long to say that things might happen next year or the year after that, or the year after that, but we have a wonderful opportunity right now, it's important we take that opportunity,'' he said. Embley, 31, found it impossible to compare the club's premiership team of 2006 with today's outfit but said: ''We have a wonderful group of players … who just want to continue to improve and get better.''
