HASTINGS Valley Vikings will look to complete the minor and major premiership double when they clash with Southern Cross University at Oxley Oval on Saturday.
The fixture will be a rematch of last year's under-14 decider which the Marlins won 24-12 after they clicked into gear in the second half.
But with a new year comes a fresh chance to create a bit of history.
Vikings co-coach Mick Aldridge said his side had only been beaten once this season - and that came against the Marlins.
They have been victorious in two other encounters, including victory in the major semi-final against the same team a fortnight ago.
"We've come from behind twice to beat them this year - we trailed by 10 in the major semi before we came home strong," Aldridge said.
"We finished as minor premiers and had to beat the Marlins in the second-last round to secure it."
Marlins captain Rory Beech was the difference in last year's grand final and while he won't be there this year, Aldridge said their opponents still had plenty of firepower.
"Their understudies are just as good so they don't lose much," he said.
"They have kept a large majority of their players this year from last year so will be tough to beat."
Captain Noah Post along with Seth Martin and Ethan Tombs will be three key players who will play vital roles should the Vikings be victorious.
"Noah isn't the biggest speaker out on the field but he leads and tackles anything that moves," Aldridge said.
"Seth leads us forward all day and our fly half Ethan Tombs has class written all over him.
"We'll look to those three to provide the direction for us on Saturday."
Kick-off is at 8.30am.
