2015 GNFL Grand Final

Let's talk AFL. It is good to be a West Australian today following West Coast's and my beloved Fremantle's wins on the weekend, booking them both a home preliminary final and giving them a much needed week off.

While these two teams rest up, in the Mid West, our attention turns to the GNFL grand final between Towns and Brigades at WA Country Builders Stadium on Sunday. Towns, who were long the perennial cellar dwellers of the competition, have dominated the league in the last 19 seasons, winning 10 premierships from the last 16 grand finals. Former Carlton defender Nick Duigan coaches the Bulldogs, after moving to Geraldton at the beginning of last year.

Brigades will be aiming to end a 26-year premiership draught, despite making three of the past eight grand finals. The Hawks will be hoping to reverse last year's result after they fell short to Towns. They are ably coached by Pete Watters, who is in his second year at the helm.

Railways tackle reining premiers Northhampton in the reserves, while the family club Chapman Valley will be looking to gain their first piece of silverware in 13 years by taking on last year's premiers, Railways, in the colts. With our two AFL teams taking a rest this week, I encourage all football lovers to get out there and support their local teams.

Best of luck to all clubs and players across all grades and in all sports being played this weekend.
