The fur will fly when 2012 premier Walpeup-Underbool begins its title defence when it takes on the resurgent Woomelang-Lascelles at Beulah in Mallee Football League's first semi-final of 2013.
Tomorrow's final will celebrate White Ribbon Day, as the league is supporting Australia's only national, male-led primary prevention campaign to end men's violence against women.
In head-to-head contests this season, the Cats were victorious twice in three encounters.
In the final home and away game at the weekend, they got home by just seven points.
The Cats match up well against Walpeup-Underbool, but the one thing the Roos do have in abundance is recent finals experience something the Cats lack.
A highlight will be seeing Russ Gravestocks medallist Trent Donnan in action. Donnan has had a wonderful year for the Cats, culminating in his richly-deserved win ahead of Beulah's Micah Buchanan and Sea Lake-Nandaly Tiger Col Durie.
At the weekend, the Roos had Chris Lynch on Donnan for most of the game. Lynch did well to negate Donnan's influence and they probably broke even over the four quarters. Lynch will probably start on Donnan once again.
A key match-up will be Mark Charleson and Josh Ratcliffe against Josh Charles in the ruck.
Charles is an experienced and talented big man and is more than capable of dropping off a player or two. The Roos also have the option of throwing Charles forward early to expose the Cats' lack of tall backmen.
The Roos will be strengthened tomorrow by the return of Wade Champion, Kyle Munro, captain Kane Munro and Chris Vorwerk.
Champion has had a couple of strong performances against the Cats this year, scoring five goals in the Roos' win and two when his side went down early in the season.
Expect Joel Donnan to line up on him.
David Piasante will need to be watched as he can do great damage in a short time.
The Cats might not tag him initially they seem to prefer to rely on the whole team to exert pressure on the opposition midfield.
The Cats aim to cut off supply rather than trying to beat players one-on-one.
Walpeup-Underbool will need to look out for Woomelang-Lascelles' small forwards, especially Corey Kelly and Jamie Church, who will be unknown to the Roos because of his absence due to injury.
Woomelang-Lascelles had no injuries from Saturday's win over the Roos and it also has four key players returning tomorrow, including both key forwards.
Jayden Lonergan will be a welcome return. Like Champion, Lonergan was another who polled well in the Russ Gravestocks medal count.
The Roos will have to watch Dwayne Hamlin as he seems to like to get out wide on his own and the Cats will use him to push the ball forward.
Kelly was the Cats' most lively forward at the weekend, and might face up to Josh Coates.
The battle-hardened Roos will go into this match as favourites.
