Anzac Day will be an extra special occasion for an Old Launcestonians couple as they prepare to play at the same venue for the first time.
Star NTFA division 1 forward Field Reeves and first-year NTFAW player Deanna Wadley will both take to Invermay Park on Thursday for clashes with Perth and South Launceston respectively.
Reeves, who kicked five goals in his only match to date this season, said the pair had enjoyed sharing the sport since the establishment of the Blues' women's team late last year.
"When we come to training we can come together, we can come to games together and watch each other and help each us other's games out," Reeves said.
"The club culture has definitely grown [from having a women's team], everyone's become one.
"We don't have women's and men's, we're all one, we do things together like Thursday night dinners and try and do social events together and everyone's a pretty close-knit group as a club."
One of a handful of State League netballers playing with OLs this season, Wadley kicked a goal in her side's maiden win over Scottsdale in round two.
The Cavaliers shooter said her side was keen to measure its improvement since playing the Bulldogs in a practice match earlier this year, and to compete on what has become of the biggest days on the football calendar.
"I think [playing on Anzac Day] is moreso a respect thing," Wadley said.
"Obviously football is a team sport that brings people together and that's really good in the sense of Anzac Day camaraderie."
