Defending premiers Mirboo North will unfurl their 2017 flag on Saturday in a first round grand final rematch against Yinnar at Walter Tuck Reserve from 2.35pm.

The replay of last year’s grand final is shaping as a tantalising match and Yinnar are sure to be out for vengeance after their agonising two-point stutter at the final hurdle.

The Magpies head into the season with redemption front of mind and have retained all of their 2017 runner-up side and boast some handy inclusions.

The retirement of Tigers stalwart Jack Robertson who hung up the boots after the landmark flag win and the losses of Beau Ridgeway to Queensland and Jesse Giardina to Boolarra should give the Magpies the edge ahead of round one.
