Between them they've won three of the past five Bernie Naylor medals, but only one of East Perth's Josh Smith and Claremont's Chad Jones will have the chance to add a premiership medal to their personal collections next week.
The spearheads will be focal points in attack for their respective sides in Sunday's preliminary final.
Jones has been one of the competition's premier forwards for most of the past decade, winning the league goal-kicking award twice, in 2009 and 2010.
But his WAFL goal-kicking average has fallen below two a game this season for the first time since he returned to WA in 2007 after a stint with North Melbourne.
Claremont coach Marc Webb said the full-forward had a key role to play in the Tigers set-up.
"I think the big thing is that we've really focused on our team effort," Webb said.
"Chad may not be kicking the amount of goals that people expect from him (given) what he has done (in the past), but his ability to contest and provide what we want in the forward line is still there and he still can have a big impact.
"It's important that he still provides a good contest and, hopefully, he can still kick a few goals."
Smith, along with dominant ruckman and teammate Paul Johnson, has been one of the most influential big men in the competition this season.
He kicked 62 goals in the home-and-away season to claim his first Bernie Naylor Medal, but was held to just one major by Swans full-back Tallan Ames in the first semifinal last Sunday.
Despite Smith's quiet game, the Royals still found avenues to goal, which coach Brian Dawson said made them a much more dangerous side.
They had a spread of 10 separate goal kickers, with West Coast players Jamie Cripps (five) and Scott Lycett (four) the pick of the bunch.
"Hindsight's a great thing, but if you had've said we'd kick 18 goals and win the game and Josh Smith would only kick one goal then we may not have thought that would be exactly right," Dawson said."But I think in finals footy it's a great thing to have a spread of goal kickers. If you can find them on the day it certainly adds to your chances of winning."
