Mackenzie Hawkesby was the star of the show for the Sky Blues over the two legs as they overcame the Mariners 2-1 on aggregate with the midfielder on hand to score both of her side's goals.

It was a relatively more straightforward passage for City who cruised past the Jets 6-0 on aggregate. Coming out on top 3-0 in front of a packed house in Maitland before repeating that score line at home a week later.

There will be an abundance of talented players taking to the pitch this Saturday afternoon however there will be a select few which have the capability to snatch the victory for their respective side.

Hawkesby's form heading into the Grand Final makes her one to watch, while their front three featuring Matildas star Cortnee Vine, Princess Ibini and rising star Indiana Dos Santos will prove difficult to contain in the attacking third.

City seemed to have stepped it up a gear as the campaign progressed and showed their class against the Jets with six different scorers getting on the scoresheet throughout the two legs.

The attacking prowess of Hannah Wilkinson and Daniela Galic is a tried and tested success while further back , they have the experienced Rhianna Pollicina marshalling the midfield with legendary Brazilian Barbara in between the sticks.

In their two meetings this season, it is Dario Vidosic's side who hold the advantage after coming out on top 3-2 in Sydney back in November, while the second clash ended goalless.

The odds may be stacked in Sydney's favour as they gear up for their seventh consecutive Grand Final but they will be coming up against an incredibly determined City side who will be targeting their first title since 2020.
