A Rugby side to remain in touch with the top three and an RSL-Colts determined to bounce back from one of its worst losses in recent history.
There's a huge amount to play for at Lady Cutler 2 on Saturday but the game will take on extra significance at is it the tenth edition of the Danny Bower Cup.
It was 2010 when the two clubs came together to honour the memory of Danny Bower, the man who represented both clubs before dying tragically in a sky diving accident in May of 2009.
The fixture has become one of the more special on the RSL-Whitney Cup calendar and while rising temperatures are threatening Saturday's edition, Rugby president Steve Wheeler expects it to be another memorable day.
As always, the fixture will be played at the Lady Cutler complex with the club's second grade next door.
The third grade game was also meant to be played at the same time but it has been abandoned due to the extreme temperatures forecast.
"I was talking to [Colts'] Brad Cox this week and just said it's always a different atmosphere," Wheeler said.
"There's going to be the six teams in that precinct and there's always a bit of a buzz."
There's been some enthralling battles during the past decade with the two sides often at the top of the first grade ladder.
Things are little different this season with both currently outside the top three but that won't change the level of competitiveness.
"There's a mutual respect," Wheeler said.
"Colts went on a magnificent run with premierships but we knocked them off a few times.
"It's two successful clubs sharing the day and there's always that different atmosphere.
"We've got to win our last four games at all costs so position-wise it's very important for us and it's important for Colts too because they're right there with Newtown."
Colts is level with Newtown but sits fourth on differential, 10 points behind second-placed CYMS while Macquarie is a further two points ahead.
Colts heads into the match after a hammering at the hands of Newtown last time out, a match in which they were rolled for just 75.
Rugby also had a loss prior to the Australia Day weekend general bye, showing fight before ultimately falling short against CYMS.
As important as the result will be for both sides, Wheeler knows Saturday is about more than that.
As well as having the three games next to each other, there will be a tent with food and drinks on offer while beer and wine will be on hand for supporters.
There will also be a post-match function at the South Dubbo Tavern where the cup itself will be presented to the winner of the first grade game, while there will also be man of the match awards.
"Myself and Brad Cox sought this game out and it's a significant things for both clubs," Wheeler said.
"He [Bower] is a life member of Rugby and should not be forgotten. He was a bigger than life character."
The second grade game between the clubs is at Lady Cutler 3.
Play starts 1pm.
