Traralgon remain the only undefeated team after five rounds of the 2010 Gippsland Football League season after they defeated Warragul by seventy points and Sale defeated Maffra by one point. Warragul remain the only team without a win.

The Gippsland Football League (officially Gippsland League) is the only major Australian rules football competition in the Gippsland region according to the Victorian Country Football League.

In other games, Morwell defeated Drouin and Moe defeated Wonthaggi.

  1. Traralgon (five wins, no losses - 166.67%)
  2. Maffra (four wins, one loss - 150.8%)
  3. Sale (three wins, one loss, one bye - 126.32%)
  4. Morwell (three wins, two losses - 115.62%)
  5. Drouin (two wins, two losses, one bye - 128.28%)

Western Park
Warragul, Victoria
Australia

Warragul lead Traralgon early in the third quarter but were quickly over taken and convincingly beaten.

Moe (seen here), Leongatha and Wonthaggi are one game out of the finals.

To that point in the game, the defence of both sides dominated not allowing many scoring opportunities. From the fifth minute of the third quarter, the game belonged to Traralgon.

Tim Aitkin kicked six of his nine goals in the last quarter to help Traralgon stamp their authority on the game.

Sale 13-8 (86)
Maffra 12-13 (85)
Recreation Reserve
Sale, Victoria
Australia

Sale upset ladder leaders Maffra at home. One could have argued that Maffra's inaccurate kicking in the second half cost it the win.

To the end of the third, Maffra lead but could not close out the match. Sale won the match with a goal from a free kick after the full time siren.
