Remarkably, the stand-out teams this season will meet for the first time in the 2017/18 premiership decider after their round 12 clash in January was called off.

Both line-ups feature several players new to the game who have impressed in their debut seasons and play their first grand final today.

Top side Merbein South enter the club’s second grand final in three years undefeated while reigning premiers Mildura Settlers have been beaten only once this season.
