BOTH the Berry Magpies and Nowra-Bomaderry Jets will be hoping to make up for previous missed opportunities this weekend.

In the corresponding round five fixture, they both let games slip through their fingers, but are ready for a second chance on their home soil.

The Magpies play the Milton-Ulladulla Bulldogs at Berry Showground on Sunday, while the Jets are at Nowra Showground against Shellharbour City.

Last time they met the Bulldogs, the Magpies let an 18-4 lead slip, to go down 20-18, while the Jets suffered a heart-breaking 26-22 loss against the Sharks, with their opponents scored in the last 20 seconds.

Back then, they were both struggling to win, but are now arguably the two form teams of the competition and are keen to keep the ball rolling.

The Magpies are in search of their sixth consecutive win, which could see them into the top five for the first time, while the Jets are out to prove they are a genuine title contender, after moving into third place last week.
