The Tatyoon team celebrates after winning the preliminary final against Penshurst.

The A Grade premiership will be decided when Woorndoo-Mortlake and Tatyoon clash on Saturday.

There was only two goals in it when these two sides last met in the qualifying final, as the Tigers came away with the win in that instance but will need their best performance if they are to pull it off again.

There will be great match ups all over the court, with probably none more notable that that between the centre players, Jacqueline McDougall and Nicole Anderson.

Both players were named best for their respective team in their previous encounter against each other.

McDougall can intercept passes anywhere on the court with her incredible ability to read the play.

She is hard to keep up with but no doubt Anderson will be up to the challenge.

Anderson is fast through the middle corridor but also provides a steady option for her teammates.

She will need to play her own game whilst also ensuring she applies plenty of pressure over the ball to stop easy access for the Hawks into their attack.

Both sides have formidable scoring units; it is sure to be an entertaining component of the match for spectators.

Maggie Astbury and Lauren McCarthy have been in fine form for Tatyoon but will need to ensure they convert on the scoreboard as Tigers defenders Georgia Muir and Kate Reynolds are great rebounders.

Astbury and McCarthy are known for the quick passes between themselves under the post.

Muir and Reynolds will need to watch these passes and try and pick some of them off when possible.

At the other end Jessica Cameron and Sarah Cameron have been accurate and tough to beat for the Tigers.

The Hawks defenders Simone King and Zoe Astbury will need to be on their toes and hope their teammates can apply pressure on the ball as it enters the ring. T

hey will have to take their chances with rebounds as the Tigers don't tend to miss too often.

The team that can capitalise on their opportunities in the goal circle will be the one that ends up in front as the final whistle sounds.

This match should go down to the wire in a fitting end to a great season for both teams.

The A Grade grand final match between the Hawks and the Tigers will start at 3pm with the presentation proceedings to follow on the netball court following the final whistle.
