BRFL's big grand final day


The NT WorkSafe Big Rivers Football League (BRFL) Grand Final day is on Saturday 15 September at Nitmiluk Oval (Katherine Showgrounds) and this year marks the first time the women will be battling it out for their own premiership cup. 

The day kicks off at 11am with the Challenge Cup Carnival. Remote teams from the Big Rivers Region will send their best talent to represent their community to compete for bragging rights. 

The inaugural Women’s Grand Final will take place at 4pm between Eastside Blues and the Katherine Camels. These two teams have been ladder leaders all season and with strong lists to select from, the participation-focused competition is sure to turn fierce in the final match. 

As dusk turns the oval into a picturesque array of colours and at 6pm the men’s Eastside Blues will be aiming for their sixth consecutive premiership against the re-ignited Katherine South Crocs. 

Finishing as the undefeated minor premiers in 2018, Eastside will be confident yet cautious against a team who restricted them to their two smallest winning margins in Rounds 1 (22 points) and Round 6 (18 points). 

With the Crocs in their second year back in the competition, the club is determined to knock off a dominant Eastside outfit.
