POSSIBLY A GRAND FINAL REHEARSAL THIS SATURDAY

Despite another team being sandwiched inbetween top side Gnowangerup (10/1) and third-placed Newdegate (8/3), a likely Ongerup Football Association grand final rehearsal will be played at Gnowangerup this Saturday, August 1, in the Round 12 game-of-the-day. The home team’s sole loss in 2015 occurred against Newdegate during the second series. Spot two on the OFA ladder currently belongs to Jerramungup (9/2), the reigning premier and winner of six of the past seven flags. There is no doubt that, in the mind of most people involved in the Association, the crown will be won by any one of the three top sides. And those not attached to Jerry Eagles, will probably be hoping for a Gnowangerup versus Newdegate grand final. The Bulldogs won its only OFA title in 1996 (by one point against Borden) and Newdegate, winner of four OFA premierships, has the longest current title drought – spanning back to 1991. Newdegate has beaten Jerramungup only once, by four points in last season’s second semi-final, over the past decade and seem to match up better against Gnowangerup. The question of which team of the latter two will go into the forthcoming finals with a 2/1 ratio over its opponent will be answered on Saturday‚Ķit promises to be a close encounter. Gnowangerup won Round 2 this season by 13 points and the Lions Round 7 by 21 points. Listen in from 2pm via ‘My Retro Media’ or Radio Great Southern 1422am this Saturday.
