We are off to the big dance with our seniors and under-19s competing in this year’s Grand Final at Preston City Oval. The seniors take on West Preston-Lakeside and there is one change with Nick Lynch returning to replace Rourke Turner. The under-19s will start the day in the Grand Final against Montmorency.
Lucas Hobbs has claimed the Frank Rosbrook Medal as the NFL’s Division 1 best and fairest player. He tied with Michael Brunelli from Heidelberg on 21 votes while another Macleod star Ned McKeown was just two votes from the joint winners. Macleod’s James Williams finished third in the NFL Division 1 under-19s best and fairest while Brae Morgan won the leading goalkicker award. Annie Bugden was runner-up in the NFL Netball Section 5 best and fairest.
