456 considering Centrals only lost by 7 to forestville (who came 2nd) when they played without thier 6ft 5 centre, without thier back up centre, and without the new 6ft 2 kid coming into the group, I wouldn't say the starting centre is the ONLY reason they are playing in the final. I'm sure if forestvile didn't have thier best player they would have lost. (You'd have to agree forestviles best player is worth more than 7 points). Using that common sense, Centrals minus the starting centre playing Any team minus thier best player would win. Could be to do with thier coach who has coached the best placed Adelaide team at the Under 14 nationals 2 years in a row, and who won state champs last year, could be because of thier excellent depth with the aforementioned gaurd playing a huge part in thier success, or it could be because the whole team are a great group of kids and very receptive to the coaching they are given. Realistically it is probably a combination of all those reasons, and not JUST because they have 1 outstanding player.
