It's one verses two on Saturday as the top two Group Seven rugby league teams clash on Michael Cronin Oval at GERRINGONG.

It will be a test for both the Jamberoo Superoos who are coming off a loss last week and the Gerringong Lions whose young side continues to defy the critics.

Commentator SCOTT McLAURIN says even the Lions home ground advantage may not make much difference. "That might be a slight advantage, but there'll be nothing in it. You know, there was nothing in the game last time, there was one try between them. It was a fantastic game and I think it will be the same this weekend, there'll be a big crowd there to support them."

The game kicks off at 3pm.
