The West Gippsland Football Netball Competition arrived like a breath of fresh air in 2017 – providing an evenness of competition only dreamt of by so many other leagues.
The unpredictability from week to week was one of its biggest drawcards, and in 2018 the same remains.
Inverloch Kongwak’s dominance over Cora Lynn in last year’s grand final was simply stunning, but Ben Soumilas’ Sea Eagles were the best side all season and will be the hunted this time around.
From the northern end of the competition, Nar Nar Goon and Kooweerup look the most likely to challenge the Cobras, while Phillip Island again looks particularly strong at the southern end, and a host of new coaches and star players will add yet another dynamic to one of Gippsland’s most intriguing competitions.
