Lightning, who are the reigning Premiership holders, found themselves just making the final four after defeating Melbourne Vixens before overcoming a rampant Firebirds last weekend in the minor semi-final.

It's not the first time the Giants and Lightning have met in finals though as they were in the inugaural Super Netball grand final last season. 

However, the Giants have had the upper hand against Lightning this season including a most recent 53-53 draw in round eight. 

"Getting the draw and the narrow loss. there is nothing between the two of us," Lightning assistant coach Kylee Byrne said.

"I think to think the grand final performance we put out last season is in the back of their mind.

"It might that they will rise to the occasion and know what is coming at them, hopefully, we can rise to that level."

However, the Giants lost to Fever in the major semi-final before the team was hit with a virus according to Lightning winger Kelsey Browne.

The club is also seeing the retirement of shooter Susan Pettitt while Commonwealth Game gold medalist Serena Guthrie will return to England at the end of the season.

"I think there is going to be a lot of hunger there," Browne said.

"There is going to be a lot of fight and feeling. I think for us if we can go into it with a plan and know that is what we have to do, it's going to be important for us."

The two teams face off Sunday at 1pm live on Channel 9 to see who will take on West Coast Fever in the grand final.
