Queensland’s best community footballers will take centre stage in the QAFL and QWAFL grand final day at Leyshon Park, Yeronga, on Saturday September 26.
The Labrador Tigers will take on the Morningside Panthers in the QAFL decider, kicking off at 1:10pm.
The Tigers have had a week off following their major semi-final win a fortnight ago, after finishing the home and away season on top of the ladder.
Morningside had a convincing preliminary final win over Wilston Grange to qualify for the grand final, giving them a chance to go back-to-back.
The grand final is a repeat of last years match.
In the QWAFL, the Coorparoo Navy Roos will be looking for a three-peat of premiership wins when they take on the Coolangatta-Tweed Bluebirds.
Coolangatta-Tweed won straight through to their grand final, defeating Coorparoo a fortnight ago, who they will again line up against in Saturday’s decider.
Coorparoo finished on top of the ladder this season, dropping just one game in the home and away season, to Coolangatta-Tweed in round 1.
The day starts with the QAFL reserves grand final, between the Labrador Tigers and Wilston Grange Gorillas.
The Tigers booked their grand final spot a fortnight ago, by defeating Morningside, while Wilston Grange also defeated the Panthers in a thrilling preliminary final last Saturday.
At half-time in the QAFL grand final, the speedsters from the men’s and women’s competitions will compete in time sprints, to find out who is setting the pace in their respective competitions.
ABC 612 will broadcast the match from 1:00pm.
