Your weekend footy starts here
NO MATTER the code you follow, it's getting to the pointy end of the season.
And while it's been a season no-one could have predicted, there's no doubt sport is one of the glues holding our communities together.
More than ever before, coaches, team managers, players and supporters are saying how important it is to be able to get out and have a game.
Sure, winning is always fantastic, but for many, it's all about the game with their mates.
Ahead of the women's Aussie rules game on Saturday, Lismore Swans coach Shawn Holland is talking up their progress.
Holland said the heart of the team was all about having a go and improving with winning a benefit - but it's not the only factor for getting out and having a go.
"It's fantastic to see the improvement in all our girls, we are really starting to play well as a team," Holland said.
"The new girls are starting to understand the game more each week and putting themselves in better position to make an impact on the game, whether it be getting the ball, putting a shepherd on, a really good bump, or putting the opposition off their game."
Holland said coaching women means he is constantly impressed with their courage and commitment.
"I've always been impressed with the girls' fearless attack on the footy," he said.
"And the fact they never give up is testament to the character of the whole team."
Holland said while it was still early to call, he thinks as they are starting to kick more goals and the margins are narrowing every game, a win "could be just around the corner".
"Above all, seeing the girls smiling faces running off the field regardless of the score is priceless," he said.
"They're all having fun and this is an encouraging sign for us coaches.
"If we continue on this path, who knows, a grand final appearance could be on the cards."
