Round 17 of the Fortescue Metal Premier Grade is brought us by the Insurance Commission of WA.

It's a perfect round for it as a place in the top four is still up for grabs with two weeks left. It's time to Belt-Up as we embark on an electrifying round of Rugby!

Reigning Premiers Cottesloe are fighting for a place in the top four with a win against Perth Bayswater. Perth Bayswater got the best of Cottesloe in Round 13 with a nail bitting 41 - 36 victory. A try in the 81st minute sealed the deal for Perth Bayswater in a must-see rematch. Cottesloe will host Perth Bayswater at Harvey Field.

Wests Scarborough will take on Associates at Bennett Park on Saturday afternoon. These two teams last squared off in round 4, with Wests winning by a point. The Soaks are in fifth place with tied points with Perth Bayswater, while Wests are sitting second.

Top-placed UWA will rough it out against Nedlands in this week's Stan game of the week. Nedlands had a convincing win the last time these two clashed with a 52 - 14 victory. Nedlands had multiple double-try scorers in Murry-Abraham, Mckellar and MacDonald.

Although Palmyra is almost guaranteed a finals spot in Division 2 of the FMG Premier Grade, two teams are still fighting for a finals spot.

With only four points separating them from third place Southern Lions, Wanneroo is currently in second place. The clash will be at Wanneroo's home ground at Kingsway Sports Complex.

Arks will battle it out with Joondalup at Harrisdale Pavillion, with Kalamunda taking on Rockingham at Hartfield Reserve.
