After finishing first and second on the A Grade ladder Curtin Uni Wesley and West Coast both had a week’s break before heading into this weekend’s semi-final.

Last time the two sides met in round eight the game ended in a draw, with West Coast the only team to almost upset Curtin Uni Wesley’s otherwise unbeatable season.

With a Grand Final spot for the taking the loser will get another chance as they face University in the preliminary final next weekend.
