Tamar Churinga travels to Burnie to play City Marians and Tamar will be looking to midfielders Claire Deavin and Amy Dawber to provide opportunities up front.

City Marians have had a stellar season, with young players Lillian Gates and Charlotte Vandenberg showing great improvements.

They will definitely be looking to finish their season strong on home ground.

Devonport travels to Launceston to take on the South Launceston Suns.

It will be a tough game for the Saints ...

With the Suns’ finals spot guaranteed they will aim to consolidate the skills they have built this season and set their team up for a successful run at the finals.

Devonport will be out for blood faced with their final opportunity to collect that elusive win this season.

Queechy Penguins take on Launceston City at home.

It has been an impressive year for the Launceston club with the return of their women to the GNL competition.

As a result, City will be looking to finish strongly with a win against their hometown rivals.

Meanwhile, Queechy secured their finals position with their win last weekend.

They will be focusing on working as a unit, pushing themselves from the first whistle as they set themselves up for their finals campaign.

Smithton travels to Burnie to take on South Burnie.

It will be a tough game for the Saints who will be relying on the experience of Sonia Poke and Mel Porteus to shut down South Burnie’s quick, young forward line.

South Burnie also has secured their finals spot and will be looking to consolidate on their work this year. 

Collecting a win on home ground would give them a mental advantage coming into finals.

West Devonport will rest in preparation for their first finals match next weekend.
