Sitting four points clear with four straight NRC wins, the NSW Country Eagles have exceeded all expectations so far this season.
Coming off a 20-point win over the Sydney Rays to remain the only unbeaten side, the Country Eagles are well on their way to finishing the competition on top.
However, the Country Eagles are still without Andrew Kellaway, and will also be without Tolu Latu, who will be on Wallabies duty.
Folau Fa’ainga is set to start for the first time this season, moving Carrie Moore onto the bench.
Coming off a 30-point win over Queensland Country in a high-scoring affair, Perth Spirit have finally fought their way back into the top four.
Ben McCalman and Manihera Eden will both get to start for the Spirit again, and they will be joined by Ross Haylett-Petty who played an hour off the bench against Country.
However, scrumhalf Ryan Louwrens will not be making an appearance.
The last time the Country Eagles and the Spirit locked horns was in the 2015 season. The Spirit opened up as favourites, but suffered a close three-point loss in a thrilling affair.
This time around the Country Eagles are the favourites, and playing consistent rugby. This season, we don’t know what to expect from the Spirit, but if they’ll need to bring their A-game to get the job done in Sydney.
