The match up will feature two very well drilled sides in the Swannettes and the Warren Bulldogs and there is little between the two teams, with both enjoying victory over each other throughout the year.
Furthermore they finished the regular season first and second.
The Dunedoo ladies took out the minor premiership but Warren weren’t far adrift – just two competition points.
They then met in the major semi-final with the Dunedoo Swanettes coming from six nil down to go on to record a 16 to six win and book their spot in the big day early.
Warren then had to face the Gilgandra Pink Panthers in the preliminary final last weekend to keep their campaign alive.
The Panthers were hoping to have their League Tag team feature on grand final day in addition to their men’s side, but they were defeated 22 to 16 by the impressive Warren outfit who scored five tries to three in the victory.
The standard of play exhibited by Dunedoo and Warren augers well for a great grand final battle worthy of the top sides of the 2017 season.
Gilgandra’s McGrane Oval will be the venue for the Castlereagh League’s big day this Saturday, when the grand finals will be played in front of an expected big crowd.
The senior rugby league encounter will see the undefeated Gilgandra Panthers looking for back-to-back premierships against the Coonamble Bears, who knocked out the Gulgong Terriers last weekend.
