Gopu and Nguykal to contest third consecutive Miwatj Health GAFL premiership

2019 GAFL grand final action

The Miwatj Health Gove Australian Football League (GAFL) will come to an exciting close tomorrow when for the third-year-in-a-row Gopu and Nguykal go head to head.
Nguykal will be looking to claim a three-peat while it will be Gopu's fourth consecutive grand final appearance with their hopes of securing their first flag in that time looking good after going through the 2020 season unbeaten.
One of the first organised footy competitions to get back up and running around Australia during the COVID-19 shutdown, the final day's action gets underway at 2pm at Hindle Oval 2 in Nhulunbuy and will have all the usual colour, excitement and activity.
The half-time sprints for men, women, boys and girls will also make a return with the prestige of being the fastest in Nhulunbuy sure to be another hotly contested event.
The 2019 Grand Final was a one-point thriller won by Nguykal in extra-time, and there's no doubting that they'll be relying on midfielders Sam Christie and Dhangatji Mununggurr to supply their bustling full forward and GAFL leading goalkicker Rico Mununggurr good use of the ball if they hope to claim victory.
Gopu has strengthened its side in 2020 with the additions of Galiwinku imports; Locky Dhurrkay, Raven Marika, Isaac Burarrwanga and Gabrielle Marika, who will all be essential in helping steer the premiership in their team's direction. They'll also get a confidence lifter after the side's last game against Nguykal was a 52-point win in the semifinal.
Once again this year, the Milkay Mununggurr Medal will be awarded to the best on ground with 2019 winner Cedric Marika back to captain Gopu in tomorrow's game. 
With the size of the GAFL doubling over the past two teams (from four teams to eight), it's a remarkable testament for the two clubs to have progressed once again.
