Last team undefeated by season

Post by spell_check on Thu May 12, 2016 6:17 pm

I started to compile this, looking to see if there was a team which ended a teams winning streak to the season more that others.  What had me surprised the low amount of occasions where the last team to be defeated in a season ended up winning the flag in the end.  The premier of the season is marked ^ and the table excludes occasions where the two or three remaining undefeated teams lost in the same round:

2016 6-0 South 7.4 Sturt 14.10 (48 pts)* season in progress
2014 4-0 South 11.9 Eagles 13.7 (10 pts)

!North were 2nd on the ladder before the first defeat, owing to Central having a 3-1 record with a better percentage
~Sturt were last, and brought up their first win by defeating the only undefeated side
*In 1998, Port, West and Sturt were all 4-0 and had losses to North, Eagles and Central respectively in the next round.  This is the only occasion three teams were left undefeated, then in the next round, all lost.
#Technically Port were unbeaten to this point, however, they lost their opening round win due to playing an unregistered player.
The last to be defeated besides Port, is shown below that entry (West)
$Port went throughout the minor round undefeated; won the Semi Final, however lost the last two matches of the season to West, to hand West the flag
%Port were 2nd on the ladder before the first defeat, owing to Norwood having a 3-1 record with a better percentage

Only 27 out of the 103 seasons did the last team to be defeated, ended up winning the flag.  28 if you count Ports 1914 undefeated season.  Even the team which defeated the last remaining side only ended up with the pennant 18 times

15 out of the last 76 seasons did the team last to lose go on to win the title (19.74%)
9 out of the last 51 seasons (17.65%)

A couple of other things noticeable in that list - have a look at 1948 and 1994. The 1994 match took place one day shy of 46 years after 1948.
Norwood defeated Torrens 18.8 to 6.8 in 1922; the following season lost as the last unbeaten team to Port, 18.8 to 8.7
