St Albert's will strive to put one back on their college rivals, Robb, when they clash under lights in a Thursday night encounter.
Albies got off the mark with a win against the Barbarians in round three and will hope to keep the momentum going when they face Robb in their round four match, which was brought forward to the Easter weekend.
"Robb have been outstanding and will be keen to wrestle top spot on the table back from Tamworth, so Albies will need to be on song on Thursday night to counter that," Albies co-coach Scott Waterson said earlier this week.
Robb College had the week off after two big wins, the first in round one against Albies and then against their grand final opponents from last year, Armidale Blues, in round two.
Co-coach Sam Ditchfield said it was a much-needed break with a number of injuries cursing the club.
"Having the week off helped us," he said.
"Across the club we do have a number of injuries, we probably have six or seven players out of first and second grade from our round one games.
"In saying that, our first grade side is as strong."
Against the Blues, a number of Robb players departed the field during the match with injury.
The bench players filled those positions for majority of the match and the first grade team have called upon their second and third grade sides to fill the rest.
"Really the side we have got is the side that played 50 minutes against the Blues anyway," Ditchfield said.
"It is exciting as a coach to have those players play first grade.
"We are not losing anything but it is great for those guys to have the opportunity to impress the coaches and play at that level."
Although Robb were dominant in round one, Ditchfield is expecting a vastly different Albies team to take the field.
"Albies have improved. I think it will be a very good game," he said.
"Hopefully we get through this weekend with no injuries.
"It is one of those very competitive games that neither side wants to lose."
Matches will be played at Consett Davis from 6pm.
Across town at the sportsground, South Armidale and Demon Knights will be playing their round three Northern Inland Premier League match.
