Friday night's Northern derby looks set to throw together two of the State League's best midfields as North Launceston hosts Launceston at UTAS Stadium.
We asked the skippers of both clubs who they'd most like to pinch from their rivals.
North Launceston captain Brad Cox-Goodyer
"Jobi Harper's probably one of the better players in the state just due to the fact that he's a player that can dominate a game individually and can change the game himself whether it be forward or on ball, in the air.
"He's a quite a tall midfielder and he's got a strong body so he's a player we've got to nullify the best we can."
Launceston captain Jay Blackberry
"The man to my right [Cox-Goodyer] is probably fairly handy but they've got a couple of top end guys that you could take any of them.
"I don't think it would really matter if you took Foony [Jay Foon] as a marking centre half-back or half-back flank, [Arion] Richter-Salter, Taylor [Whitford] himself.
"Even Bart [McCulloch] at full forward is pretty handy - they've got some good top end talent - hopefully they have a hard night of it on Friday."
