Although it might be wet and windy, Round 15 of the Fortescue Premier Grade is heating up!

The wet weather from last week created a few upsets, and this week could produce the same.

After a big win last week, Associates (5) are looking to topple over second-placed Nedlands to keep their top four dreams alive. The two teams will battle it out at Allen Park. Nedlands got the better of Associates last time they met, getting up 27-20.

Cottesloe (6) is preparing for a big challenge tackling a red-hot Wests Scarborough (4) at Bennett Park this week. Cottesloe needs a win this week to keep the four from four dynasty a reality. Wests is hoping to repeat their Round 2, 30-19 victory over Cottesloe.

UWA will be looking to redeem themselves this week as they take on Perth Bayswater at Pat O'Hara Reserve. Perth Bayswater will be on the hunt for two scalps in a row. The last time these two faced, UWA was victorious 32 -20.

Coming off a close win to Nedlands, Perth Bayswater coach Johan MacDougall said the boys are ready for the challenge this week.

"We've had a good week at training with things starting to click, but there's still more to do."

"We have our game plan and we need to stick to it."

With Wanneroo having a bye this week, Palmyra is looking to stay on top facing ARKS this week in the Fortescue Premier Grade Division 2.

Joondalup will be hosting Rockingham this week at HBF Arena. Rockingham is after some payback after their 27-12 loss in Round 6.

Kalamunda is hoping to hinder Southern Lions attempt for a top two spot this week at Success Regional Sporting Facility. Southern Lion's aiming to repeat their Round 6 victory 36-24 over Kalamunda.
