Four South Coast talents remain in the hunt for the Provan-Summons Trophy, as the 2021 premiership transitions into the preliminary final stage of the season.
The first of the weekend's two sudden-death finals will pit South Sydney against Manly-Warringah at Suncorp Stadium on Friday.
Nowra-born Cody Walker will spearhead the Rabbitohs side, who will be out to break their three-year preliminary final hoodoo.
While Gerringong's Reuben Garrick, who needs 21 points to break Hazem El Masri's all-time season record (342 points in 2004), will start on the wing for the clash.
Then Saturday's fixture will see minor premiers Melbourne battle Penrith at Suncorp Stadium.
Bega's Dale Finucane will start at lock for the Storm, while former Shellharbour Shark Chris Lewis is on their extended bench for the preliminary final.
