Koroit supporters may find their minds drifting on Saturday with their team's performance not the only thing that will spark their interest.
The Saints will be on the road to take on Terang Mortlake in Terang, with a sixth win in a row for the Saints the result heavily favoured by most observers.
Another win would keep Koroit on top of the Hampden league ladder after the first 11 rounds of the season.
Koroit is one of three teams, along with North Warrnambool Eagles and South Warrnambool, who have a 9-1 record.
The Saints sit on top thanks to a vastly superior percentage of 330.33, well ahead of that of the Eagles (168.73) and the Roosters (163.54).
The domination of these top three teams on the 2021 season is further made clear when their losses are delved into.
The three have only lost to each other: Koroit to North Warrnambool Eagles, South Warrnambool to Koroit and North Warrnambool Eagles to South Warrnambool.
An upset from outside the top three has not looked likely since early in the season.
Last weekend, the gap between the top three and the rest was laid bare.
Portland, Cobden and Warrnambool are all in the race for fourth and fifth places on the ladder.
But last Saturday, Koroit defeated the Tigers by 84 points, South Warrnambool accounted for the Blues by 53 points and North Warrnambool Eagles won against the Bombers by 60 points.
All these facts and figures are spelling out the massive price that will be won and lost each time the top three teams play each.
On Saturday, the Roosters and Eagles will clash at Friendly Societies Park in Warrnambool.
Both teams will know a loss would almost certainly end their dreams of finishing on top of the ladder.
While the Saints fate is very much in their own hands, their will be plenty of curiosity around the result of this weekend's clash between the two of their main challengers.
As for the Saints and their clash with the Bloods, history points to a Koroit win.
When the two teams met earlier in the season, Koroit won by 140 points.
The Saints are in good nick at the moment, with plenty of options in attack.
Sam Dobson continues to stake a claim as the best player in the league while Tim McIntyre could also call dibs on the same title.
Will Couch took the spotlight last week against Portland, with the colorful forward kicking six goals.
Jarrod Korewha is expected to return this week from an elbow injury that has kept him out since round six.
In other grades, the reserves team remains in good form, coming off a 180-point win over Portland.
Classy left-footer James North continued his outstanding form with a best-on-ground showing that included four goals.
The under 18.5s team won by 38 points, with Declan Gleeson in good form, Jamie Lloyd and Jake McCosh kicked two goals, while Mac Petersen made an impressive return after injury.
