Last year Kangaroos downed Southcity in the Weissel Cup and now the Wagga club is out to repeat the dose in reserve grade.
Kangaroos are yet to beat the premiers this season, but have come through two close do-or-die games in the finals to earn their place in the grand final at Equex Centre on Saturday.
Coach John Arentz is looking to take that form into the decider.
“We’ve have a couple of tight semis, against Junee with eight minutes to go we were leading by 18 and a few of the boys I think switched off a bit early, while last week we come from behind to win in the last two minutes,” Arentz said.
“It proves we can come from behind and also lead.”
Southcity have lost twice this season, both times against Junee, and scored comfortable wins in two previous clashes with the Kangaroos.
The smallest margin was 18 points in round 13, however Roos hadn’t beaten Young all season until last week either.
It gives the side some hope, but they know Southcity go in as the team to beat.
“They are certainly the benchmark of reserve grade and will be red hot favourites,” Arentz said.
“We’re definitely the underdogs.”
They take an unchanged line up into the decider.
Kangaroos have won their last four games and things are starting to come together for the side.
Arentz is hoping they can peak in the biggest game of the year.
“Due to injuries in first grade this year we haven’t been able to cement a line up where we can build combinations,” he said.
“Now with the last few games we are slowly building those combinations and we will be much better for it.”
