Tallangatta finally has the chance to exact some revenge on rivals Kiewa-Sandy Creek for its loss in the 2019 grand final when they meet under lights at Tangambalanga on Saturday.
The Hawks posted a thrilling six-goal win in the league's last decider, but the Hoppers have had a long time to think about it.
Kellie Green enters her second season at Tallangatta after she featured alongside sister and coach Anna Avery in the Hoppers' 2018 premiership and will play a key role in the middle.
"It's always a close tussle with them and I'm sure it will be again," Green said.
"It will be different playing at night and I'm sure there will be a few people out here to watch. Everyone seems keen to get back into it after a year of nothing."

Georgie Attree has crossed to the Hawks from North Albury and has found the transition seamless.
"It's quite nice to go into a team and not feel out of place. It all works well together," she said.
"It's a different pace because you have the opportunity to slow the ball down and be a bit more controlled, whereas in the O and M it can get a bit erratic sometimes."
