Sansbury [b]Liston Trophy Votes:[/b] 3 Ryan McMahon(Port), 2 Luke Cotchett(Port), 1 Thomas Roach(NBall) This should be a fantastic grand final played between the best 2 teams in the competition this year. Will the short break hurt both sides(Especially North Ballarat). Port Melbourne are playing in their first grand final since 2004 and have not won since 1982. North Ballarat who are yet to win a flag and are playing in their 1st grand final since 2000. Hopefully a good crowd will come to the Dome on Friday for this great night. I think Port Melbourne to win this game but it will be a close finish.

I will definately be in Sydney if Storm are in the Grand. Having not missed out on a VFA Grand Final since Max Papley was running around for the seagulls I hope there is no draw on Friday.
