Ground: Natimuk Showground, tomorrow, 2.20pm.
Umpires: C. Pickering and S. McKinnon.
Last time they met: Round nine, 2013. Kalkee 29.23 (197) d Natimuk 4.1 (25).
NATIMUK and Kalkee will both welcome back several key additions in the final game of the home and away season at Natimuk Showground.
The five-time reigning premier will only get stronger, with gun players Tim Wade, Steve Schultz, Brendan McDonald and Oliver Young returning to a line-up that beat Noradjuha-Quantong by 49 points at the weekend.
Josh Webster will resume duties with North Ballarat Rebels at the weekend, but will be available for finals selection.
Zavier Hobbs is one of the few Kees still out with injury and coach Matt Beddison said they would take no chances with him ahead of the finals.
Natimuk will welcome back handy players of its own, with talls Tim Friend and Dylan Carroll and midfielders Kyle O'Connor and Ryan Malloy returning.
Bart Hennessy and Bryce Hateley are also a chance to resume.
After contending for a finals place for the first time in years, coach Dylan Wright said it was important the side finished off the season the right way.
"We want to finish off with a spirited performance and we don't want to be an easy kill," he said.
"Every game I go into I expect to win my position and I want everyone on the team to have that mindset. If we have 10 blokes win their position on the day, I'll be happy."
The Kees are approaching the game as a chance for a last-minute tune-up before a week off in the first round of finals.
Beddison said with an almost full list to choose from, players needed to be at their best to retain their spots.
"For us, this is our last big hitout before finals, so we're taking it as a finals-type atmosphere," he said.
"In the game we had against Laharum two weeks ago, we had a lot of intensity and we want to make sure we match that each week."
