Note on the Round 9 match between Sandringham and Coburg played on 26 June 1948

This match does not appear in the final ladder. The final result was: Sandringham 11-11-77 Coburg 9-20-74.

Coburg protested that short time had been played, as the timekeepers had not allowed time off during the three quarter time interval.

The Association decided on 12 July 1948 to replay the game, but only in the case that its result would have a bearing on the final four.

As it eventuated, the result of the game would not affect the final four, so the game was not replayed.
