Gerringong and Warilla set for grand final replay

THE stage is set for a mouth-watering showdown at Michael Cronin Oval on Saturday, where the Gerringong Lions host the Warilla-Lake South Gorillas in a replay of the 2013 grand final.

While the Lions carry the defending premiers tag, the Gorillas have been the team to beat in 2014, with only one loss for the season.

The Gorillas were too good when they met earlier this year and the Lions won’t be too keen to lose to them twice, especially in front of their home crowd.

The Lions have come through a rough patch by winning their last three games convincingly, they have moved up to third place and are starting to look a genuine premiership contender again.

But you cannot discount the Gorillas, who will all but wrap up the minor premiership if they can get the two points and they will certainly fancy their chances.

It is a tough game to call and could easily go either way, but rest assured it will be an absolute cracker.
