From 1878 to 1897 the premiership was awarded to the team which finished at the top of the end of season ladder, apart from 1889 and 1894 when play offs were needed to decide the premiership.  In 1889 Norwood and Port finished equal on wins and goals and a decider was played which Norwood won, 7.4 to Port  5.9. Norwood and South also played a decider in 1894 but the matched was drawn 4.8 apiece leading to a replay which was won by Norwood 4.7 to South 3.5. Finals were introduced in 1898 and prior to 1931 if the minor premier was defeated in a final they had the right to play the grand final winner in a challenge final to decide the premiership.
