THIS weekend's B grade grand final between the Narrandera Carpheads and L&D CC Yellow is shaping up to be a hot contest.
The Carpheads have enjoyed the week off, while the Ferrets secured their spot last weekend.
Both teams are fighting for premiership glory, something the Narrandera side has already tasted this season after picking up the Twenty20 title over Yanco at the beginning of February.
Carpheads captain Dave Kroek said making it two-from-two was the ultimate goal for his team.
"Definitely … you start the season with that aim, so that's what we want to do," he said.
"Obviously it's a different game this time and we're expecting it will be close.
"We'll have a full side available, which is one of the only times all season that we've had that happen."
The B grade competition this year has been up and down as sides struggled to fill teams each weekend, but Narrandera and L&D CC in both of their times (Yellow and Blue) have always shared a healthy rivalry.
"Last time we played them was a couple of weeks ago … they were quite short, so we won't really be taking much from that game into this one," Kroek said.
"They have some very good experienced players like Peter Lashbrook and Adrian Axtill.
"They are definitely danger players so we will need to watch out for them."
L&D CC Yellow do have a mix of youth and experience on their side and will be fighting to hold the trophy aloft at the end of Saturday afternoon's final.
Lashbrook, who is Yellow's leader this season, said the side had enjoyed a consistent start to the season.
"A lack of numbers after Christmas didn't help us, but we've started to find good form recently," he said.
"I think our older players will stand up. They've been helping our younger players and it's starting to show.
"Obviously you've got Adrian Axtill and Matt Robertson are two quality veterans, so we'll rely on them a bit. They are good leaders."
Lashbrook is confident if his team turns up with their heads already in the game, the Ferrets will win.
"Definitely … I think it's there for both teams to win, but I'm pretty confident if our boys turn up ready to play we can win it," he said.
Both captains have said consistent play on Saturday when both fielding and batting will be the key.
They agree there's not a lot of difference in either batting or bowling first so long as their team members can get the job done.
"I think it will come down to whoever handles it the best and hopefully that's us," Kroek said. "It would be good to win both of the premierships this season."
