A LENGTHY drought will be broken or history made when the Victorian Football League and West Australian Football League clash on Saturday at North Port Oval.
The VFL last triumphed in a representative match in 2012, when it thrashed the Tasmanian State League by 108 points, with its four-year winless run started by the WAFL in 2013.
Meanwhile, the WAFL has never won a state game in Victoria, beaten in 23 matches since it first took on the VFL on away soil in 1904.
Nine players with AFL experience will pull on the Big V jumper this weekend, including Cam O’Shea (Northern Blues), Eli Templeton (Port Melbourne) and Andrew Moore (Box Hill Hawks).
