By now, the finals are generally done and dusted and the final round is normally just a formality – not this year, with plenty of live matches, keeping interest up until the very last match.
Below is what needs to happen for your team to play finals.
In the Reserves, Harvey Brunswick Leschenault (5th) play Eaton Boomers (6th) – simply the winner will finish fifth and play finals, the loser will not.
Harvey Bulls who are third need to defeat Busselton to remain third, assuming South Bunbury defeat Dunsborough. If the Bulls lose for the first time in twelve weeks, the Tigers will replace them.
At the top of the ladder, the Bulldogs host the Hawks, the winner gets a week off, while the loser will play either Harvey Bulls or South Bunbury in a Qualifying Final.
Interestingly in the Reserves, not one place in the top six is settled and all can change based on this weekends results.
Augusta Margaret River must draw or beat Bunbury or face elimination, with Busselton and HBL playing the bottom two teams.
Dunsborough also need to win to hold third place when they play South Bunbury or they could drop to fourth or even fifth depending on results.
In the Colts only Carey Park (1st) and Bunbury (2nd) can’t change, while Dunsborough can finish third, fourth or fifth, Augusta Margaret River can finish third, fifth or sixth (factoring in a draw), Busselton can finish third, fourth or fifth, while Harvey Brunswick Leschenault who are currently sixth, can finish fourth, fifth or sixth. The Dunsborough v South Bunbury match holds the key, with this match in the afternoon timeslot, meaning teams while be sweating on the outcome.
In the Womens, who ever wins the match between Busselton and Harvey Bulls will play in the second semi final, the loser will play Donnybrook in the first semi final.
