In a 'normal' world, today would have been the date of the 2020 AFL London Grand Final across all our divisions. Obviously, Covid had other plans for what we are sure would have been a stellar season otherwise. In absence of a big finals day, let's look back to celebrate the 2019 season and last year's Grand Final winners.
