It's Scottsdale's turn to play the ladder-leading Launceston, with the Magpies getting the chance to host the Blues on Friday night.
Showing improvement with wins over the past fortnight, Scottsdale coach Cabel Hall is excited to see how his side deals with Launceston.
"We're just really excited about the challenge," he said.
"I know it's probably a bit of a cliché but we are just looking forward to playing against the best and measuring ourselves against the best and hopefully we compete for large parts of the game."
The work of State League trio Kelsie Hill, Dearne Taylor and Molly Clark has impressed Launceston leader Mikayla Binns, while young gun Madi Shaw has shone through so far this season.
The league's heavyweights add the powerful Brie Rattray to their line-up for the Scottsdale clash, which Binns isn't taking lightly.
"They'll probably be one of the tougher teams in the competition to play against I think, so we are really preparing for a big hit-out with them," she said.

"We expect a nice hard game and probably cold conditions as well, so we will prepare for that the best we can."
Evandale coach Andrew Boyd will get the opportunity to show his former leader his side's skills on Saturday as the Eagles host Dwayne Beeton's Hillwood.
Beeton coached Evandale in 2019, with Boyd his deputy, and the banter has flown around the workplace leading up to the match.
"We are looking forward to it, it should be a bit of fun and hopefully we get a decent old crowd there to have a look," Boyd said.
"We've had pretty good numbers to be able to pick from for the past few weeks and we've actually have to leave a few girls out, which is a nice problem to have."
Beeton's Sharks have felt the brunt of Launceston and Scottsdale in consecutive weeks and will be hopeful of getting back on the winners' list this week.
