A grand final rematch for the ages is looming and the Fusion Fire are in prime position to take out the title after a blistering effort that has seen them surge through to the grand final unbeaten.
But coach Rebecca May isn't certain of anything yet.
"It can be a little scary when you go in undefeated, it makes the rest of the teams a lot hungrier," May said.
"It's been a good season for us, but I wouldn't say we're overly confident, though, it's been very good competition this year, all the top four teams could easily have played in the grand final."
The Fire will take on the other Fusion side, the Heat in the upcoming grand final after exorcising last year's demons by downing the Narromine Hawks in the semi-final stage.
"Narromine beat us last year and knocked us out at the semi-final stage, they were definitely stronger that time," May said.
May's side earned a 54 - 33 win over last year's grand finallists, while the Heat outgunned Inspire Panthers 56 - 44 on the weekend.
"They were stronger last time, but I think we played smarter this time, we were just a bit smarter and steadier and we didn't rush anything this time which worked out well for us," May said.
While in recent years the Heat have ruled the Dubbo Netball Association come grand final day, they've also been dealt a sharp blow in recent weeks with longtime captain Tash Robinson ruled out of the competition with an unfortunate knee injury.
While it's undoubtedly a blow to the Heat's chances of repeating their title winning feats, May think there's still plenty of threats on the court.
"It's devastating for the Heat, she controls a lot of their game, she's got such good vision and she's incredibly explosive," May said.
"But they've got a lot of other players that can work just as well and they got that win on the weekend with out her."
"They're a lot stronger than they were before, Heat have played together for quite a while."
What will be key in keeping those threats under check come grand final time are two of Fusion Fire's standouts this season; returning attacker Abbie Merritt and defensive maestro Lucy Roberts.
Both have stood out so far, and will be a huge help in the battle between two of the most evenly matched teams in a much fiercer competition this year.
"It's going to come down to the accuracy of the shooting, both our defensive ends are very good, the shooting ends are very good, there'll probably be some luck involved too," May said.
"Having Abbie Merritt in there, who's new to our side, has huge advantages for us, she can be close, she can be far away, but when she's on, she's very, very good."
"Lucy Roberts is always good for us, she picks up and turns over a lot of ball, which is great and we'll need, but it's definitely going to be a team approach at the end of the day."
The two Fusion sides will meet in the Dubbo Netball Association grand final this coming Saturday on September 19.
