The two best performed teams in the opening three weeks of the Bendigo Bowls Division weekend pennant season meet in round four action on Saturday.
Top-of-the-table Bendigo East is away to second-placed Bendigo, with East's star recruit Ian Ross to play against his former team for the first time.
East is yet to drop a rink this season, but this is its toughest test against a unified Bendigo side that has dug deep to win two close games.
Bendigo East welcomes back Lee Schraner after his stunning win in the World Singles Champion of Champions final in Adelaide.
In other round four games on Saturday, Eaglehawk faces a danger game at home against Castlemaine, Kangaroo Flat should be too strong for Inglewood, while South Bendigo has the opportunity to consolidate its spot in the top four when it hosts Golden Square.
