EAST COAST host Lilydale as the two undefeated powerhouses of the competition face off in a rematch of 2017's grand final, which the Demons won by 37 points.
East Coast were strong last week despite inaccuracies due to the Blues' pressure and are excited heading into the front line clash with Lilydale, a rivalry that heads back to the NEFU.
Rocked by some major outs this week, Demons coach Colin Lockhart is still upbeat about his side.
"Our depth is pretty good so we are still happy with the side we are going down with and that it's good enough," Lockhart said as 16-year-old Ty Dingjan returns to the senior side after strong reserves performances.
Attempting to beat OLD SCOTCH for the first time in over 10 years, Old Launcestonians have aspects to work on after a loss to East Coast.
"It's always been a strong rivalry between us two and a good game irrespective of ladder positions," Blues coach Paul Beechey said.
Old Scotch will be hungry to bounce back from a disappointing loss against Meander Valley in which they were dominated in almost every facet of the game.
After key off-season moves, the Thistles have struggled to find form and a strong performance would be a boost.
BRIDPORT'S Joe Boyce is out for four to six weeks but the Seagulls regain captain Jarrah Burns for their clash against Uni-Mowbray.
Bridport coach Adam Howlett knows a big win will be crucial for their side come later in the season but can't take them lightly due to the loss of Boyce and Andy Barron.
Scott Fenton returns from injury for Bridport as Uni-Mowbray look to make minimal changes after a respectable performance against Lilydale.
Complimenting Bridport's strong forward line, coach Alan Perrin sees this clash as an opportunity to improve on the positives of last week's game and test a side not too far out of their reach.
After an 125-point win last week in which Dylan Riley kicked 15 majors, MEANDER VALLEY are excited to test themselves against St Pats.
With their pressure a highlight last week, coach Damian Rhind is looking for the same four-quarter effort to be able to gauge their progress against the Saints.
After wanting to claim a big scalp this year, coach Alex Russell was happy with their win against Evandale but described the Suns clash as an unknown.
"Their top end is really good in Dylan Riley and Richie Heazlewood so we hope we can keep on a roll," he said.
EVANDALE didn't make the most of their opportunities last week and coach James Storay is calling for his forward line to hold the ball in longer against Perth.
Michael Rainbow, Andrew Frame and Johnnie French will come into the side for the Eagles as Perth have several players with question marks hanging over their heads.
After a disappointing loss last week, Josh Holton wants his side to reset and start again with important games on the horizon.
"They are a tough task on their home deck and a strong side so we have to put four quarters together," he said.
