Premiers Kiama will be out to extend the winning streak against arch-rivals Wollongong Lions to five games when they face off at Bonaira Oval.
The Power played the Lions three times in two months last year, including a 13-point victory in the grand final, turning the tables from the 2017 decider.
They continued the run in June with a 19-point win at North Dalton Park, but could again have a three-part series this year, with a major semi-final date looming later this month.
"I think it's 8-3 Kiama's way the last three years, so they've had the wood on us there," Lions coach Ray Burgess said.
"But we know each other pretty well, there's no real mystery about the way we go about it, even though we've got a few different players to last year.
"We go out there to win every game and it's the same at Kiama, but it won't be a disaster if we don't, we're going to finish top two and be back at it in a couple of weeks."
Lions midfielder Jack Nugent will play his 100th game for the club, having been part of the 2016 and 2017 premiership teams.
"He's been great for us since coming up from the Sapphire Coast, just with the ability to play through the midfield and go forward and find us a goal as well," Burgess said.
Burgess admits the Lions back six will need to be up for the challenge of stopping the spread of Kiama forwards who can score.
