Gippsland FNLLatrobe Valley Express | The member for Gippsland South can only hope it is a good game this weekend.

A South Gippsland Showdown will determine who takes home the Gippsland League senior premiership this season.

Wonthaggi and Leongatha will meet at Morwell Recreation Reserve for season 2023 glory.

From a historical viewpoint, the contest carries a number of subplots.

It will be the first time since 2012 a ‘local derby’ will be staged to determine the Gippsland League premiership.

It will also be the first time since 2014 that the Power will feature on Grand Final day, while for Leongatha, it is their seventh consecutive Grand Final appearance, equalling the record held by Traralgon from 1960 to 1966.

Wonthaggi are yet to win a senior flag in the Gippsland League as Wonthaggi Power, or even Wonthaggi Football-Netball Club for that matter.
