SEASON-DEFINING CLASH: Dubbo Kangaroos will welcome Orange City Lions to No. Oval on Saturday as the two best sides in the Blowes Clothing Cup clash.

THERE'S no better minor premiership clash than number one against number two.

And that exactly what Blowes Clothing Cup fans have to look forward to on Saturday when Dubbo Kangaroos welcome Orange City Lions to No.1 Oval.

The two best sides in the 2014 competition will square off for bragging rights and, more importantly, the psychological advantage ahead of bigger clashes in September's semi-finals.

In this week's video preview Daily Liberal sports editor Ben Walker and sports journalist Nick Guthrie both predict a tight tussle, with 'Roos' home-ground advantage handing them a slight edge.

Elsewhere the Bulldogs will welcome Parkes Boars to Ashwood Park.

Despite losing in the corresponding fixture earlier in the season both Ben and Nick believe the Bathurst outfit will prevail.

The Wombats will travel to Cowra hoping to break their 2014 duck, but our experts predict another loss for Mudgee, with the Eagles' strikepower too great, especially at home.

The in-form Orange Emus will face CSU Bathurst at Endeavour Oval, with both Ben and Nick in agreement that a repeat of the greens' early season win is on the cards.

Finally, Forbes and Narromine will do battle in a contest with big ramifications for both side's semi-finals prospects, with the Platypi favoured to win and cement their top-five spot.
