It feels like the season started only yesterday but we now find ourselves at the Grand Final for the Division Five competition. It has been a great season for both the Pennant Hills Demons and the UNSW ES Bulldogs. Both sides have been impressive this season and have shown they are worthy of a Grand Final birth. Regardless of the result at Blacktown this weekend this season has been memorable for both clubs. With that said, both sides will be desperately looking to take the flag this Sunday and we are sure that the game will be one to remember.

What a contest we have ahead of us! The top two Division Five sides meet for the second time this finals series and we are sure it will be an enthralling match. Last time these two sides met was in the Semi Finals it was a close encounter before Pennant Hills busted the game open with 5 minutes remaining to win by 16 points. Pennant Hills are an experienced side and will respect the physical brand the Bulldogs play. Pennant Hills have only lost one game this year and this was to the UNSW ES Bulldogs back in Round 11 by 64 points.


Prediction: Pennant Hills to win in a seesawing match with a late goal. Pennant Hills to take the Premiership by 7 points.
