Gloucestershire and Cornwall head into the final round of the Bill Beaumont Cup South Group on Saturday both determined to book their place in the Twickenham cup final on May 30th.
Gloucestershire currently head their rivals in the league table but only on superior points' difference as both sides have recorded two wins from two outings.
The clash is sure to be a thriller with both sides coming good this season after some years out in the county wilderness.
For Gloucestershire their campaign has been revived thanks to the expertise of former Gloucester player and now academy manager at the Guinness Premiership club Mark Cornwell.
Gloucestershire last reached the final of the top tier county competition in 2004, but you have to look back to 2002 when they were last crowned champions and claimed an impressive 17th title.
"I've lived in Gloucestershire for most of my life and certainly I have kept a close eye on what's going on in the county for the past five years or so," said Cornwell, whose side have beaten Devon and Somerset so far.
"I've always thought the talent has been here, but over the past couple of years things haven't been working. We have made some small changes and it has been those changes that have made a significant difference to this squad."
Gloucestershire set-up their showdown against Cornwall thanks to a 37-3 victory over last year's finalists Devon at Kingsholm at the weekend, though they had to work hard for the win with both sides locked at 3-3 at the break.
"We've really pleased to be in this position, but we have got a lot to work on. I was pleased with the second half against Devon, but in the first 40 minutes we were playing against a strong wind and lashing rain and we just couldn't get things started."
"At the break, I looked at what Devon had to offer and I knew we could win this one; we just needed to keep the ball. We started to do that and we dominated. We went on to score six tries in that second-half, and some of them were very good tries."
"It was good to be pushed by Devon; the first half was a real eye opener for the players and showed them that they are not invincible."
Like Gloucestershire Cornwall are no strangers to Twickenham. Although they haven't graced the hallowed turf of England Rugby HQ for some time, the Black & Golds have contested the final six times over the last 20 years so Cornwell knows that Cornwall have big ambitions too.
"This Saturday's game will be the battles of all battles. The winner will take all so we know it's going to be tough."
"You can look at past results this season and say we have the edge but I think really it's going to be about what happens on the day. I don't think you can read anything into the results so far. I'm just thinking about this team and getting my players fit and ready for the match."
Billy Burns and Man of the Match Richard Hibbard spoke to GRTV after the 41-0 win in Treviso, on a day when preparations weren't ideal. They felt the team's attitude was key and also praised the travelling support.
Matt Scott was again in impressive try scoring form for the Cherry and Whites on Saturday, and the Scotsman laid praise on his fellow backs for their attacking skills in a big 55-19 win over Worcester Warriors
Jonny May spilled blood for the cause on Saturday, before going on to score the first try in the 55-19 Aviva Premiership victory over Worcester. He told GRTV that the win was a reward for the hard work the squad have been putting in.
Gloucester Rugby face their second tough Aviva Premiership fixture in six days when they take on Worcester Warriors at Kingsholm on Saturday (kick off 3pm). Head Coach Laurie Fisher is expecting a massive challenge from one of Gloucester's local rivals.
It was a frustrated and bitterly disappointed Willi Heinz who spoke to GRTV following the 12-13 reverse to Northampton Saints on New Year's Day. The skipper thanked the fans for their incredible support on a day when Gloucester couldn't quite get the job done.
