Armidale Rams and Narwan Eels are set to grace Rugby League Park for one last time this season.
The Rams will host the Eels for the round 16 encounter which doubles as their Old Boys’ Day.
The A grade team will wear a heritage strip for the occasion which will be auctioned off after the game at the Railway Hotel.
Junior league matches between Armidale and Guyra will start the day before three grades of senior football begin at 12.30pm.
“Everybody is pretty keen, we had some good numbers at training on Tuesday night,” Rams assistant coach Luke Kirkby said.
“Hopefully we will be fielding the best side we have had in a while and we are really looking forward to it.
“At this stage we look like we will have two decent teams so hopefully we can get away with a couple of wins there.”
Narwan have beaten the Rams in both their encounters this year and Eels captain-coach Allan Widders is hoping to make it three from three to finish their season on a positive note.
“It has been a disappointing year but it is what it is and we will definitely look to go out with a win this weekend,” he said.
“We are expecting a pretty big crowd and a couple of old faces back. I am expecting a pretty tough one.
“The last two games they have come out and, I wouldn't say they caught us off guard but started pretty good and we know we have got to be on this week otherwise we mightn't get the result.
“I just encourage people to get down there, it should be a good day.”
The day will also see past and present Armidale Rams players who have reached game milestones.
After the match, the Railway Hotel will be providing a bus service to the pub from the ground where post-match celebrations and fundraising activities will take place.
The Rams A grade jerseys will be auctioned off as well as boots worn and signed by Jonathon Thurston, a Panthers game-day experience where the successful bidder can choose any game to attend and be treated like a VIP for any match of 2019.
There is also a major raffle featuring a Heritage Canberra Raiders jersey, signed by Ricky Stuart and Terry Campese and a 2015 signed Country Rugby League Origin jersey.
