The halfway point of the NTFAW season has finally brought together the reigning premiers and the league's last unbeaten side.
South Launceston and Evandale will meet under lights on Friday in a match that could help decide premiership favouritism for 2019.
The Weagles come into the match still smarting from their first loss of the season - a 40-point defeat at the hands of 2017 premier Scottsdale - while the Bulldogs are 5-0 and fresh from the bye.
Evandale co-captain Courtney Grice hoped the return of leading goalkicker Narine Maurangi would help boost the home side's forward stocks against a Bulldogs side which has conceded just 54 points in five games.
"We've trained hard this week because we know playing against South is always a tough game," Grice said.
"The game against Scottsdale obviously didn't go our way it was hard, we're not used to day games.
"We have Narine back this week, she missed out last week - she's been kicking most of our goals so hopefully that's a head up for us."
Bulldogs co-captain Abbi Dean said her side had been anticipating the Evandale clash since the start of the season.
"It's nearly the last round before we start the new round [of fixtures] and we've obviously been watching each other's games," Dean said.
"You go into every game thinking it's going to be a great game and you never underestimate any side, so we know we're going to have our work cut out for us this Friday night.
"We're pretty even across the ground, we've got some really strong forwards that we're hoping can kick a few.
"Kiara Foley's had a great season and Hannah Viney when she's on she's been playing really well and some new players that are up and coming... our rucks have been playing well and they're both relatively new to the game."
The match starts at 6pm at Morven Park.
