On Saturday Leicester Tigers and Northampton Saints go head to head for glory in the Aviva Premiership Final, played out in front of a packed Twickenham Stadium. Fans now have the opportunity to get involved and make a difference for the finalists.
Rivalries up front will be reignited as Lions first choice hopefuls go up against one another for the final time before the big tour down under. Dylan Hartley has said he will not back down, and will use this as a chance to impress coach Warren Gatland.
"A few people think I am in the Lions squad to cover the third hooker place," Hartley explained. "I see this weekend as a chance to push myself forward. I am going there to win a trophy for the club but it is an opportunity to put my hand up."
On the other side, Dan Cole says he is relishing the challenge of a derby game between two big clubs with a lot of history. "It always adds spice. It might boil over, it might not, we'll see, but that's the game. It all adds to the occasion," said the England prop.
Leading up to the big final, Aviva and Premiership Rugby have joined together to give the fans a chance to have their messages of support actually seen by the finalists.
All you have to do is send in your messages via Twitter using the hashtag #LittleThingsMatter and the best messages will be selected to appear at Twickenham on the day. The messages will be displayed on the LED boards in the stadium, in the tunnel for the players to see, or even on boards that will placed in both dressing rooms.
Whether you're a die hard fan, or a neutral looking to enjoy this titanic battle, get involved by Tweeting #LittleThingsMatter. Kickoff from a sold out Twickenham is at 15:00 local time.
