Twelve months ago Waratahs surprised many, including themselves - it was supposed to be a rebuilding year - when they upset Flames to win their third Tamworth women's first grade premiership.
On Sunday the two will do it all again as what has been a shortened but tight season - while Flames pretty much had one spot in the grand final locked it, it wasn't until the final game that it was decided who would play them - comes to an end.
Flames have been the benchmark most of the season and will go into the decider as favourites. But they are only too well aware of what can happen if you don't perform on the day.
Case in point last year.
The thing that burned them, and the previous year against South United, was not being able to put the ball in the back of the net, and coach Barrie Pritchard stressed the importance of taking their chances.
"It's just a matter of converting our chances, we know we'll create plenty of them," he said.
He also spoke about not turning the ball over too much.
"In attack we probably do turn over the ball a bit too frequently," he said.
"We need to make their defence work for the possession."
They will be missing Kate Ferguson but do still have a "pretty strong" midfield. Tegan Risk is coming off a five-goal haul, and is "very dynamic" as is Kim Resch.
She didn't play the latter part of last season and her return this season has added another dimension to Flames' attack.
The two sides have met twice this season. They played out a 6-all draw the first game, Flames then just sneaking home 2-1 a week later.
Waratahs are chasing back-to-back titles for the second time in the club's history.
"The girls are very excited, and so am I, it's a rare opportunity," coach Matt Wilson said.
After starting the season strongly, they dropped away a bit in the middle, but have played well in the last couple of weeks.
And they have had to. They have virtually been playing finals hockey for the last three weeks.
Against Souths they probably could have played better but they then ground out a tough draw against Olympians in a game "that could have gone either way at the drop of a hat", before showing good resilience to come back from a goal down early and get the win over Tudors.
"Hopefully that will give us a bit of momentum," Wilson said.
The Flames side they will face on Sunday is he believes a stronger one than last year and he highlighted the key as how they handle their pace.
"Hopefully we can match the speed Flames have got. They've got a lot of speed, they've picked up a couple of players in the off-season and Kim Resch is back," he said.
It will be a big day for Wilson. Preceding the women's grand final at 1pm, he will suit up for Kiwis against South United in the second grade men's grand final.
