The league is composed of eight teams and features some of the outdoor game’s top stars.

Eagles CSE, who boast players such as Liam Scott, Adam McKeown, Jacob Clamp and Eli Luttmer, finished top of the ladder this year and a win against Zebras in tomorrow’s semi-final match at 7.45pm could see them on the way to their first-ever grand final victory.

Zebras, who finished fourth, will be without the injured Ricky Self, but they have stars such as Henry Fagg, Matt Hall, Paul Palmer and Josh Thorpe in top form.

Tomorrow’s other semi-final, at 8.30pm, will be between Get Ripped and X-Men.

X-Men finished second on the ladder and have players of the calibre of Alex Leszczynski and Luke De Vries.

Get Ripped finished third and Warren Wadawu, Dipendra Kunwar, Luke Meredith and Luke Wilcox are the sort of players who can win matches with their clinical finishing.

The play-off for seventh and eighth places is at 6.15pm when Zebras Youth meet Prophecy.

At 7pm, Kingborough Lions United FC take on Panthers for fifth and sixth places.

Panthers feature Hugh Ludford, Shae Hickey and Tom Gordon amongst other impressive performers.

KLUFC have Danny Cowen, Trent Pearce and Joel Schuth in their ranks, which makes them a formidable outfit.

The final will be next Thursday, 29 November, at the same venue.

Last-minute changes:

After a brilliant series, X-Men have had to withdraw at the last minute because three of their palyesr are overseas.

This moves Zebras up into third place and KLUFC to fourth on goal-difference.

New game times now are:

7pm KLUFC v Eagles CSE

7.45pm Zebras v Get Ripped
