The O and M announced on Wednesday the first finals will be pushed to a 'Super Sunday' on August 29, with the qualifying and elimination finals to be held at neighbouring Wangaratta grounds, Norm Minns Oval and WJ Findlay Oval respectively.
"We forecast the lockdown would go for two weeks and that's why we've elected for the 'Super Sunday'," O and M general manager Crag Millar explained.
