Bendigo was last crowned division one inter-league champions in 1989 when - coached by Neville Strauch and captained by Brendan Hartney - the Blue and Gold defeated Geelong by 41 points at the Queen Elizabeth Oval.

The 15.10 (100) to 9.5 (59) win was the second of three division one inter-league grand finals Bendigo played in between 1988 and 1990.
