Sharks v Hornets in first all-Queensland VFL derby

The first all-Queensland VFL derby will take place at 1pm tomorrow with the Southport Sharks at home against the Aspley Hornets.

The two teams last clashed 595 days ago in the 2019 NEAFL Preliminary Final, with the Sharks claiming a 30 point win on route to the Grand Final.

It’ll be the first home game for Southport, still buzzing after last week’s one point win over Carlton, which saw Lukas Webb clinch victory in the final minute after being down by five points.

He’ll be one to watch tomorrow, alongside Billy Gowers who slotted six in his debut game.

The Hornets also come into the match with confidence and a round one win on their side, after thrashing Port Melbourne by 53 points.

Likely to shine again will be Matt Payne, who made his mark on the VFL last week kicking two goals in the first quarter.

The triple NEAFL MVP, triple AFLQ best-and-fairest winner and 11-time club champion went on to finish with 27 disposals, seven marks and four tackles.

The ANZAC Day clash kicks off at 1pm at Fankhauser Reserve.

The game will be live streamed on the VFL YouTube channel.
