Port Macquarie Magpies are looking to bring home a flag from the 2019 grand final as the AFL North Coast Women's season heads toward its final rounds.
The Coffs Harbour Breakers currently occupy the top rung on the ladder with nine wins and two losses after round 11.
The Magpies trail in second place with seven wins, two losses, one draw and a forfeit.
It's a long way to third with Sawtell Toormina Saints on three wins, six losses and a draw while Northern Beaches-Grafton holds one win and ten losses in their first season.
Magpies coach Mel Hunt said a flag was definitely possible during a potential grand final rematch with the Breakers.
"I would expect us to finish in second and probably looking at a grand final against Coffs Harbour if it goes the way the season has," Hunt said.
"In the finals, I'm expecting us to go well against Coffs Harbour, we'll have our full team which makes a difference.
"We have had a couple of injuries in the last few weeks which has pulled a few people out of the season. By finals we should have everyone back on board.
"I think we have had a really solid season in 2019, a much better season than the last in terms of the quality of our game and skill base of our players.
"Certainly having a season under our belt has made us a better team, we're looking forward to finals footy and with some luck we'll bring that flag home."
The Magpies are fresh from a 31-14 win over Grafton at Centennial Oval on July 6.
The team will work on keeping possession of the ball, being more physical in contests and controlling the ball in the lead-up to the finals.
Club ruckman Cambridge McCormick recently received a call to play for the Gold Coast Suns in their Women's Winter Series clash with Brisbane Lions on July 13.
"For Cambridge that's a great nod and hopefully she's done enough for selectors to keep an eye on her for next season," Hunt said.
"For us it gives our women another pathway for those that are skilled enough to step up into that next level of football, but it is quite a jump to that level of AFLW."
The Magpies now head into round 12 of the season against the Coffs Harbour Breakers at Wayne Richards Park from 11.50am on July 27.
In the AFL North Coast reserves, the Magpies are third on the ladder with seven wins and four losses, Magpies Under 17s are also third with two wins and six losses.
The Magpies seniors team is second on the ladder with nine wins and two losses.
