Is Sunday morning at Payne Park the moment when the Busselton Football Club’s colts team will finally be defeated?

The Bunbury Bulldogs will certainly be hoping so.

The eagerly awaited grand final replay between both sides promises to be a beauty, with both sides littered with quality players across the ground.

Riding high at the top of the table, the Pies have been a high-octane juggernaut so far in 2019, with an imposing forward line and stringent defence.

Sandwiched in between convincing victories over Donnybrook, Collie Eagles and Harvey-Brunswick-Leschenault, the Magpies held their nerve against fellow premiership contenders Eaton and prevailed by 10 points.

The Bulldogs will be keen to quell the forward exploits of Bailey Coshott – who has booted 24 goals in his four outings this season – while the Pies will need to keep tabs on influential play-makers Jake Symington and Max Bilcich.

Bounce down is at 9am.
