GOLDEN Square's A-grade side won't be the only Bulldogs team chasing consecutive premierships on Saturday.

The Bulldogs' A-reserve team, coached by Kendyl Hopley, will also be aiming for three straight flags against Sandhurst.

An experienced line-up is captained by Jody Richards and features accomplished talent in Clare Hope, Kath Graham and Julie Fennell.

The Dragons are playing in their sixth straight grand final and will be hoping to square the ledger at three wins-three losses after going back-to-back-to-back in 2011-2013.

They will be led by captain Emma Tindall, league best and fairest Erica Dalrymple-Monro and Gabi Green, who spent time in both A-grade and A-reserve this season.

The Bloods will start favourites after beating the Bulldogs by 10 goals in the second semi-final.

South Bendigo leads the head-to-head battle 2-1 this season, with Golden Square winning by eight goals at the QEO in round 13 and the Bloods winning by three goals in round five.
