Minor premiers the Imalu Tigers and the Walama Bulldogs (formerly Irramuru) will do battle for the title of 2020-21 premiers at Wurrumiyanga on Bathurst Island. Three-time premier Walama beat Imalu in the second semi-final and will fancy its chances against the 17-time TIFL champions. Imalu overcame the Tuyu Imalu and Walama bid for Tiwi footballs Holy Grail Buffaloes in a typically hard fought preliminary final to earn another shot at the Bulldogs. Both sides have been out of the grand final action for long stretches. Imalu last played in a premiership decider in 2011-12 when it lost to Tuyu, while Walama has not appeared on grand final day since beating the Muluwurri Magpies by two points in the 2014-15 decider. In a twist, both players who tied for the league best and fairest medal (Ted Whitten Medal) will be opposed on Sunday. Imalus Bradley (Langer) Mungatopi and Walama goalkicker Kim Kantilla were announced as joint winners earlier this month. Jikalarruwu Footbal Clubs young gun and St Johns College student, Anthony Munkara, won the best first year player award and JB Kelantumama the David Kantilla goalkicking trophy. The Brother Pye Medal, awarded to the best player on the ground in the grand final, is the only other individual award up for grabs. TIFL spokesman Willie Rioli Sr said there has been un precedented interest in this years grand final. Ive heard the ferries are booked out and so are a number of plane flights, so charter flights and your own boat, or ship if youve got one, will have to be your transport if you want to come to Bathurst Island, he said. The grand final is scheduled to kick off at 2.30pm on Sunday. A proposed TIFL-Santa Teresa curtain-raiser finally got the go-ahead last night, pitting the star-studded Centralian community side up against an emerging Tiwi side at 11am. GREY MORRIS The Ranku Eagles won last seasons Tiwi Islands premiership.
