VFL Premiership

  • Collingwood wins the 31st VFL Premiership, beating Richmond 2.13 (25) to 1.7 (13) in the 1927 VFL Grand Final
    • The low scores, caused by a torrential fall of rain on the day before and during the match, set many records:
  1. The lowest winning score since 1901 when Collingwood beat Fitzroy 3.6 (24) to 2.7 (19)[1]
  2. Richmond’s score is the equal fourth lowest since 1915 and their second lowest score ever, behind 0.8 (8) against St. Kilda in 1961.
  3. The aggregate score of 3.20 (38) is the lowest since 1900
  4. It is the only time since 1908 a team has won scoring only two goals
