Sporting a local rivalry to match the great Real Madrid-Barcelona contests in Spain, Perth will be looking to repeat its emphatic 5-0 victory over Bayswater in the major semi-final.

It was the first time Perth had defeated Bayswater since June, 2011, after Bayswater pipped Perth for the minor premiership in the regular season by two points.

However, Perth coach Taki Nicolaidis said that result would count for nothing on Saturday.

‘This week’s game is a fresh game and a new challenge for both teams,’ he said.

Grand final action at Dorrien Gardens kicks off at 10am on Saturday, with Perth taking on ECU Joondalup in the under-18s.

Perth tackles Stirling Lions in the under-20s grand final at 12.15pm, before the big league clash between Perth and Bayswater at 2.30pm.

Perth’s under-13s and under-14s will also be playing in the championship game the following day at Litis Stadium.
