1.30pm Saturday at Golden Square.
Shapes as a cracker of a game between two arch-rivals that are both 4-1 on what's a big day for the Bulldogs, with the game to be followed by the club's first Hall of Fame induction.
All four of Square's wins have come against teams that are outside the top five, while the side, after an encouraging first quarter, was found wanting in its biggest test so far with a 66-point hiding from Strathfieldsaye in round three.
In front of many of the club's greats, this is an ideal opportunity for Square to again test its mettle against a quality opponent in the reigning premiers.
Last time: Eaglehawk 15.9 (99) d Golden Square 11.12 (78).

2.20pm Saturday at Kangaroo Flat.
Hard to see it being anything other than one-way traffic in favour of the ladder-leading Storm.
The Storm - the only undefeated team - are playing a brilliant brand of two-way football and putting their opposition away early, having led by an average of 40 points at half-time in their five wins.
Star forward Lachlan Sharp's 33 goals are as many as the Roos have kicked in their five games.
Last time: Strathfieldsaye 25.20 (170) d Kangaroo Flat 7.5 (47).

2.20pm Saturday at Gisborne.
After showing plenty of encouraging signs in the first month, the Magpies would be disappointed with their lacklustre display against Golden Square last round when they lost by 113 points.
Next is another massive test - the trek to Gisborne to take on the second-placed Bulldogs, who have already had the forward trio of Pat McKenna (twice), Jack Scanlon (twice) and Jake Conolan (once) kick five-plus goals.
Last time: Gisborne 20.18 (138) d Maryborough 6.7 (43).

2.20pm Saturday at Castlemaine.
It has now been 10 years since Castlemaine last beat Sandhurst and it's tough to see the Dragons' decade of dominance not continuing.
The Magpies are enduring another season of struggle at 0-5 and averaging just 40 points per game, with co-coach Derrick Filo this week saying the team was still finding its chemistry given there's so many new players.
Despite getting nowhere near their best team on the park yet, the Dragons should move to 4-2 come 5pm Saturday ahead of a testing fortnight against Golden Square and Gisborne.
Last time: Sandhurst 34.25 (229) d Castlemaine 0.4 (4).

2.20pm Saturday at Kyneton.
Both teams coming off a pair of heavy defeats to flag contenders - Kyneton by 134 points against Strathfieldsaye and South Bendigo by 97 points against Gisborne.
The Bloods, who are struggling to get out of the blocks, have now lost four in a row by an average of 63 points.
The 2-3 Tigers have been superbly led by the midfield duo of Rhys Magin and skipper Josh Govan, who have been named in their best every game so far.
Last time: Kyneton 20.14 (134) d South Bendigo 11.10 (76).
