It will be a face-off of the Griffith Group 20 sides this weekend as the Waratahs Tigers, and Black and Whites face off at Exies Oval on Sunday afternoon.
It will be a match-up of two sides who are coming into the clash with different fortunes, with the Waratahs coming into the game off the back of a loss to the TLU Sharks in their last match.
Waratahs' co-coach Trey Woodland felt it was a case of his side being outplayed by the Sharks.
"It was a tough one to swallow but take nothing away from the Lakes side," he said.
"They turned up and really had a crack, and they were just genuinely better than us."
It has been a tough season for the Waratahs to date, having picked up only three wins so far this season and are sitting just inside the top five at this stage.
Woodland feels that his side just need to work on their attitude in defence.
"I can't fault our guy's efforts. It hasn't been the easiest of years, but the effort has been there week in, week out," he said.
"I think we just really need to focus our attitude in defence.
"We want to be there, and we want to get back at some of these teams that have put good scores on us."
Their nearest competitors are Yenda, who side two points behind the Waratahs side, and Woodland knows they will have to win as many games as possible to secure their finals berth.
"I think Yenda just below us, and they definitely have the capacity to take out a team when we don't need them to," he said.
"I think we need to win as many games as we can heading into the last few rounds to try and cement ourselves in that finals position."
Having had the week off due to the changing of the fixtures, the Waratahs will head in fresh, which allows Woodland to hopefully name a full-strength team.
"I've said it before, but I think we will finally have our full squad to pick from, which has been a bit of a blessing," he said.
"We knew coming towards the end of the season that we would start to strengthen up our squad a little bit."
The last meeting between the two sides went the way of the Black and Whites, who came away with a 56-16 win.
