A week before finals action hits the TCL, Trevallyn and Hadspen go head-to-head to see how they are looking heading into the season's pointy end.
Having both picked up wins last week, coaches James Whiteley and Liam Reynolds described the performances as "pleasing" and spoke highly of their upcoming opposition - the former identifying bowling as their key area.
"We've identified some areas that we might be able to get a leg up and give ourselves a chance to win but then again, they are a very well-led team, so we are going to have to be on our A-game," Whiteley said.
Drew Clark and Nick Garwood return to boost an already healthy batting line-up, setting a major challenge for Reynolds' bowlers, who were on fire last week.
"It was just one of those days where the bowlers were rewarded by getting the nicks and the guys catching them," he said.
"We will have to be on our game and play to our strengths and into our plans as well and hopefully that will hold us in good stead."
Two sides looking to recover from disappointing losses face off as Evandale Panthers host Perth.
The Panthers fell to Legana last week after grabbing consecutive wins, with captain Jonty Manktelow ruing his side's batting.
"We were 0-60 and to be all out for 115 was really disappointing, especially after the weeks we've had," he said.
"We'll be up for the challenge and hopefully can play some good cricket against them [this week] and get a win to finish off the season."
John Hayes' Perth suffered its first loss in nine weeks, dismissed for just 42 against Hadspen in a "disappointing" performance.
"We have one week to turn the ship back on the right course but we are confident we can bounce back and it's probably a bit of a wake-up call that we needed," Hayes said.
"Time will tell over the next two weeks whether that's the case."
ACL and Longford certainly have different mindsets as the two clubs do battle on Saturday.
The Bluebacks started the season in finals contention but haven't been able to pick up a victory since December 5, changing coach Shaun Woods' expectations.
"It's all about fun now, we can't make finals now so ... it's nothing too serious anymore," he said.
"With any luck, we can finish the season off with a win but if not, as long as the boys have an enjoyable game.
"Hopefully we can put some runs on the board and bowl well."
MORE CRICKET: Jarrod Freeman to grace MCG for the first time
Coming off last week's bye, the second-placed Tigers decimated Trevallyn in their last match-up and boast the most economic bowlers this season.
Longford's skilled attack has leaked only 1237 runs this season, almost 300 less than Hadspen's, with captain Jackson Blair singing their praises regularly as they strive for the premiership.
"We are looking to obviously go in there and get the momentum going our way and play a good 80 overs of cricket before we start finals," he said.
Pride is on the line as two bottom-five sides in George Town and Legana look to end their seasons on a high.
A win can take the Saints to sixth in their maiden TCL season, while four points for the Durhams could see them sneak into fifth after several seasons of relegation followed by promotion.
George Town coach Jack Hill said his side, while battered by availability and inconsistency, took some big strides throughout the year.
"This week is just about building a platform heading into a pre-season and next season," he said.
"It was a cracker game of cricket last time we played them but hopefully it's not as close, I haven't got that left in me at this time of year."
Hill welcomes back middle-order wicketkeeper-batsman Shane Baker, who has had the Midas touch for the Saints this year and Prasanna Kharel, both of whom the coach wants to see more of next season.
For Legana, one former Amazing Race Australia contestant makes way for another, with Sam Hay coming in for close mate Geoff Stick.
Coach Michael Quill was pleased with last week's eight-wicket win, which was in front of the club's life members for their past players day.
