Any meeting between RSL-Colts and Newtown is a gripping affair but there will be even more on the line when the two foes meet at No. 3 Oval on Saturday.
The two are putting pressure on leaders Macquarie and CYMS, particularly after last weekend's surprising set of results, and a win on Saturday would be a massive boost for finals hopes.
Both Colts and the Tigers won last weekend and made ground on the top two, who both lost in the first round back from the Christmas and New Year's break.
Colts, who downed CYMS last time out, is now just five points off the Cougars and if last week is anything to go by the side is starting to rediscover the kind of fight and determinations synonymous with the club during its recent dominance of the competition.
While the batting lineup still hasn't fired to the level captain Marty Jeffrey desires, the ability to pressure opponents with the ball and in the field remains.
Newtown, meanwhile, crushed a battling South Dubbo last week but goes into Saturday's crunch match battling many of the issues which are also plaguing Colts.
Both sides are crying out for a top order batsmen to dig in consistently and make big runs, as often it's been left to the middler and lower order to get the team out of trouble.
Newtown, in its search for an opening batsmen, promoted Lee Price to the top of the order last weekend and the opening bowling delivered and made a half century.
How he performs against an RSL-Colts attack is another question, with the swing and seam of Ben Semmler expected to be a real danger in what should be overcast conditions.
Newtown features a number of seamers of its own, with captain Mat Skinner, Price, and Trent Smith all a threat with the ball.
Elsewhere on Saturday, CYMS will be boosted by the return of Lachlan Strachan when it takes on Rugby while top meets bottom when Macquarie and Souths do battle.
All games start at 1pm.
