AFTER defeating Bomaderry Tigers on Saturday, the Wollongong Bulldogs have again secured a spot in the grand final against the Kiama Power on Saturday.
This is the third grand final in a row the teams will meet each other and is set to again be a blockbuster.
In 2011, Kiama won by four points with a memorable kick after the siren to claim victory.
Last year, despite the Power's 10-week undefeated run into the finals, the Dogs clawed their way back from a three-quarter time deficit to win by four.
Coaches Brent Lipscombe and Rodney Richards said they expected this year's clash to be another nail-biter and if the Power was to win each player had to be accountable for the role they were given.
"This year they are a more balanced and mature side simply coming to do their job," club president Troy Gent said. "If they do that, they will win."
There has been a solid rivalry between the two clubs brewing for the past few years as each side tried to claim dominance.
Last week's semi-final was testament to that, with battle scars evident at the game's conclusion.
With the week off work to the Power's advantage, the team will be primed for victory.
Whatever happens, expect hard-contested football at North Dalton Park in Wollongong this Saturday.
