Forster's Kylie Hilder and Gloucester's Tayla Predebon will be members of the Central Coast Roosters side to contest the grand final of the Harvey Norman Women's Rugby League competition on Saturday, September 26.
This follows the Roosters 13-12 golden point win over Cronulla in the major semi played at Campbelltown.
The Roosters were the minor premiers. Hilder plays at hooker, while Predebon is in the front row.
Central Coast halfback Melanie Howard slotted the successful field goal to put her team on top with two minutes remaining in extra time.
Hilder played with the 2019 premiership winning side, the CRL Newcastle. This team has morphed into the Roosters this year. Predebon forced her way into the starting 13 this season.

The defeated Sharks will meet North Sydney Bears in the final next weekend. Norths beat Wests Tigers earlier 16-4 in the elimination semi-final.
Hilder has an assistant coaching role with the Sydney Roosters when the NRLW starts next month.
She played with the Roosters in the opening season of the NRLW when the side made the grand final.
Hilder also represented NSW in the State of Origin clash against Queensland last year, although she has now retired from the NRLW and representative football.
NRLW players are set to be forced into their own separate bubble ahead of October's season start as the code considers triple-headers during the NRL finals, the Sydney Morning Herald reported this week.
NRL general manager of elite competitions Jason King said the league's biosecurity experts had advised against interaction between the men's and women's bubbles.
Meanwhile, Old Bar's Holli Wheeler will miss this year's NRLW.
A back rower, Wheeler played in the opening two seasons of the competition with St George-Illawarra. Saints made the grand final last year.
Wheeler also played with the premiership winning CRL Newcastle team in the NSW premiership.
However, Wheeler is still recovering from a knee reconstruction after rupturing her ACL playing for St George in the NRLW Nines in Perth in February.
Wheeler has set herself the goal of playing again next year and earning a spot in the Australian Jillaroos team to contest the World Cup in November 2021.
She has played for NSW and Australia for the past two years.
