LAUNCESTON CITY have found their groove as they return from the bye with an intriguing clash against Devonport looming as a major game for both clubs.
City drew with last year's semi-finalists South Burnie and picked apart West Devonport in the weeks leading up to their break as Devonport caused an upset over City Marians last week as both young, developing sides shape up for a match that could go either way.
Northern counterparts QUEECHY PENGUINS have also managed to find a rich vein of form as they face South Burnie, who were decimated by premiership favourites Burnie Baptist last week.
