The Fortescue Premier Grade regular season has almost wrapped up, and four teams have one last chance to qualify.

Associates and Perth Bayswater are currently out of the top four. While Nedlands and Cottesloe have snuck their way into the top four. 

Cottesloe has fought back to be in finals contention and will have to take on top-placed UWA to make it there. The last time these two teams met, UWA won 34 - 10. The match will be played at Harvey Field on Saturday afternoon.

This week's STAN Game of the week is a Do or Die match between Perth Bayswater and Associates that will dictate who makes it into the top four. These two teams clashed once during the season in round one, where Perth Bayswater won 40 - 18. Perth Bayswater will host the match at Pat O'Hara Reserve Feild 1. 

Much like Cottesloe, Nedlands won't have an easy run home to finals, as they host second-place Wests Scarborough at Sir Charles Court Reserve. Wests Scarborough lost the last time these two teams met in round nine, 0 - 37.

After a week off in the FMG Premier Grade Division 2, Palmyra will face off with third-placed Southern Lions. The last time they faced off, Palmyra won 18 - 10.

Wanneroo will take on Joondalup at HBF Arena this Saturday. Wanneroo got the best of Joondalup the last time they met 24 - 20.

After their first win of the season last week, ARKS will take on Rockingham at Lark Hill Sporting Complex. ARKS went down the last time they met, 34 - 24.

It'll be hard to take your eyes off the field this weekend as two spots are up for grabs to make it into the finals. We look forward to seeing you down at the ground for the final round of the Fortescue Premier Grade!
