Football Wagga have agreed to review their finals structures for next season but explained it is too late for any changes to be made before the weekend.
The decision comes after a number of clubs contacted Football Wagga about finals structures this season, where the make up of Leonard Cup finals series particularly has come under fire.
Hanwood, who finished minor premiers, will take on second-placed Tolland in a sudden-death preliminary final on Sunday, while the third and fourth-placed teams, Cootamundra and Junee, meet in the other grand final qualifier.
The structure, a top five finals series played over three weeks, does not allow for the top two teams to meet in the grand final, unless Tolland had lost to Cootamundra last weekend.
Football Wagga president Tony Dobbin conceded it is something that will be looked at for next year.
"We'd agree that we need to look at it, the clubs have come to us and said look at it, and that's certainly what will happen for next year," Dobbin said.
"We have committed to the clubs that we will look at it. The best thing for us would be not to have a five team finals, or a five team finals series but over four weeks.
"It has been recognised that there is an issue with one v two and we will try and look at it. A couple of clubs have asked us to look at it and we have committed to looking at it."
Dobbin said it was too late to change the draw for this weekend.
"Yeah, because once it is in the competition rules, we can't, we have the rules in place," he said.
"The other aspect that has been raised is that clubs, whether it be a four team, five team or six team competition, they know what it is and the outcome of one, two, three, four, five is how they've played during the year.
"We had a very shortened season, compared to our normal season so the issues that we will look at in the future is do we ever have a five team, three week finals series, or we do it over four weeks, or go with the four teams, or go to six teams. All those things will be in the mix."
Dobbin said it was not until finals hit that the issue was realised.
"I'll be honest, the five team structure has never really been used before and it's not until quite literally we got into it that people realised the way it was going to work," he said.
"It was not really realised that team number two, if they won, would meet team number one in the second round, not the last round.
"It's a recognition now that yes we would look at it again if we had a five team, three week finals series again. Its the first time we've ever had it, in my understanding, and it's not until you actually get to the draw and think what's going on here."
Dobbin said the plan was to return to a full 18-round season next year.
