With the final six rounds of the Hume Football League season to commence on Saturday, the makeup of the finals is very much up in the air.
One thing looks assured and that is last year's premiers Brock Burrum Saints are certain to finish as minor premiers and go into the finals a very firm flag favourite.
Who finishes in second place and secures the double chance has come down to a race between Osborne and Culcairn, with Osborne holding a slight percentage advantage at present.
Both teams play the same six teams each in the run home so it could well be percentage that sorts out who gets the double chance.
Billabong Crows look almost certain to play in its first ever finals series since joining the Hume Football League at the start of the 2008 season.
Currently, on eight wins, the Crows could win four of its last six to be assured of a spot and most likely in fourth where they currently sit.
Henty has had an up and down season but at full strength could well be a genuine threat to the Saints.
However, a tough draw looms, with games against all top three in the run home.
Lockhart currently in sixth position will need a big month ahead as they have Osborne and Culcairn in the final two rounds. A massive game this week at home to the Crows.
If Holbrook make the finals they will have certainly earned it with a brutal run home that includes four of its six matches against the top four teams.
Rand Walbundrie Walla, despite sitting in eighth position, have a good run home and should be able to secure a finals spot after missing out last year.
The Giants' percentage is quite good and it should increase further this week at home to Magpies.
Howlong like the Giants have a good run home and if they can pull off one upset they could well play finals. A poor percentage will go against them if it gets close.
Jindera and CDHBU, while no chance of playing finals, have a great opportunity to shatter a few dreams with an upset or two possible.
The Murray Magpies who are yet to record a win has its best chance when it takes on CDHBU in round fifteen.
Howlong like the Giants have a good run home and if they can pull off one upset they could well play finals.
HUME FOOTBALL LEAGUE HALL OF FAME
Another five former footballers will be inducted into the Hume Football League Hall of Fame on Wednesday, July 31 at the Commercial Club in Albury.
It will be the fifth Hall of Fame and the latest five inductees will take the total men and women inducted to 26.
The Brocklesby Football Club will celebrate two of its past champions Ian Schilg (dec) and Gary Drew being inducted for services prior to the merger with Burrumbuttock.
Both Schilg and Drew are one of only five players to have played three hundred or more games at the Blue and Whites.
Holbrook legend Bertie Haynes will become the second person from the Holbrook Football Club to be inducted following on from Col Black in 2016.
Haynes after completing a stellar career on the field went on to be the second longest serving president in the 127 year history of the club.
Roy Batson from Howlong will become the second Spider to be inducted from the Red and Blacks, following in the footsteps of Terry O'Halloran who was inducted last year.
Batson was a tough and dynamic utility and had an amazing record of high finishes in club best and fairest. He also won the Azzi Medal in 1967.
The fifth inductee is Alwyn Schmidt (dec) from Jindera. Schmidt, with 351 senior games, is the second highest in the club's history.
Once he finished playing Schmidt turned his hand to an amazing thirty three year stint as club secretary during which the club contested thirteen grand finals.
