wasnt it played amongst those sides that missed out on the finals back then?
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways my ways,” says the Lord.
 
“For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are my ways higher than your ways,
And my thoughts than your thoughts."

Yahweh? or the great Clawski?

Yep al. I think it was in those days the top 4 played finals while the remaining 8 played this knockout night series at the old Lake Oval.
