So Southport just don't play?
Seems that way. The QAFL released their updated seniors draw midway through this week and it doesn't include Southport so that won't change. I think the Sharks will just have to sit out this season and return to the QAFL in 2021.

Jen2310 just found out former North Melbourne and Fremantle player Jess Sinclair is the current senior coach of Palm Beach Currumbin and former Geelong/GWS player Josh Hunt signed on to play for PBC this year. We were talking about former AFL players in the QAFL the other week and it's always interesting to see which retired AFL players make the move each year.

With the Queensland bid for the Grand Final successful, we will see an improvement and increase in facilities for AFL right across Queensland including te Gold Coast. That is the government's promise instead of a major financial promise such as WA.

. The Queensland Government has promised a series of legacy projects which the AFL would have been challenged to acquire if not for the Grand Final.

They include better ground access for the AFL, infrastructure for women’s changerooms for an AFLW product that is going gangbusters, and more junior competitions. What is the point in taking a slightly better financial offer from WA if they just have to use the money buying what Queensland has promised.

The broadbeach v morningside final game of the season begins at 2pm.

Top of the table clash.

Gore, Reeves and Fyfe are playing
So Broady secured the minor premiership but sadly AFL Queensland confirmed yesterday that the Southport ground will be unavailable to host the QAFL Grand Final this year which means the minor premiership doesn't mean much now that the GF will be held in Brisbane (Yeronga) regardless of who qualifies. Prior to yesterday, AFL Queensland had a rule in place that stated the highest finishing team that qualifies for the GF would host the game in their home city.

Oh well. We've claimed five QAFL premierships in a row as a city and most of those were won in Brisbane so hopefully that continues this year. Broadbeach are the only Gold Coast team in the QAFL that have not claimed a flag in the last five years so hopefully it's the Cats' year in 2020! Any word on whether Alex Davies will rejoin Broady during the finals series?

Worth mentioning that PBC have finished third so they are obviously a chance to win the QAFL flag as well.

I read that. That's unfortunate, but I've watched most of Broady's games this season and I feel they are superior than anyone else. Very good chance they can get a flag this year.

Looks like PBC are ahead in their QAFL elimination final against Mt Gravatt today. If they hold on here then they'll face Morningside in the prelim next week and Broadbeach will face the winner of today's Sherwood v Maroochydore EF. Maroochydore are currently ahead.

It'd be very unique to go into next week's QAFL preliminary final weekend with two Gold Coast teams, one Brisbane team and a Sunshine Coast team. I doubt that's ever happened in the past. Hopefully the two GC teams get up and we can see a fifth consecutive all-Gold Coast QAFL final.

That's a good mix though, Good for SEQ footy to have all 3 main regions in the hunt.

Unfortunately, Maroochydore lost. Palm Beach and Broadbeach are in next week's preliminary finals though. I think Broady are going to win this year. They are the last current Gold Coast team to have not claimed a QAFL premiership. In fact, I think Broadbeach have only ever claimed two senior premierships in their entire club history so I'm pulling for the Cats for this year. Hopefully Alex Davies gets to play in some of these finals with Broady.
