To many, this game may not be one that might set the football world alight, but try playing down its significance to these two local sides with less than five miles of road separating the clubs.
Two years ago, Ballinameela won the Western and County Intermediate Football Championship, something that very few could have foreseen.
Since they have they have been a breath of fresh air in the SFC, reaching the semi-finals against all the odds last year. And they were extremely unlucky not to have pulled off the shock of all shocks in that penultimate fixture against Stradbally.
The Brickeys, since coming up from Intermediate ranks in 2006 have not set the Championship alight as they may have wished.
On the other hand, they’ve managed to stay in the senior ranks on more than one occasion when most would have written their senior obituary notice.
I have no doubt that this could well be a cracker of a game and could attack a large attendance to the Fraher Field.
The game could also see history created in Waterford as there is the likelihood that it will be the first SFC game to be played entirely (or part of) under the new lights at Fraher Field.
Little is expected to be between the sides at the end of the hour, but you could be forgiven for fancying Ballinameela to take another brace of points to add to the two they collected against Gaultier in May.
Should they do so, they’ll secure their place in the last eight of the Championship for the second year in a row.
