Ground: North Park, Stawell, tomorrow, 2.20pm.
Umpires: G. White and G. Rigby.
Last time they met: Round nine, 2013. Laharum 23.13 (151) Swifts 13.10 (88).
IT will be an intriguing duel between two finals-bound teams when Swifts meet Laharum at North Park tomorrow.
The Baggies remain something of an unknown quantity this year after starting slowly before gathering momentum.
It matches a similar pattern from the previous two seasons and co-coach Paul Hanns is hoping the trend continues into the finals, where they beat Laharum last year.
He said if the Baggies won tomorrow, it would give them an edge on the Mountain Men if the teams met in the finals.
"Even though it can't change our position on the ladder, it would be nice if we could get the win over them," he said.
"We want to make sure we take confidence and a bit of form into the finals and I think it would play on their minds a little bit knowing we knocked them out of the finals last year."
Talented midfielder Tom Ruggles will come into selection contention for the Baggies but key forward Jeremy Joiner will miss again.
The Mountain Men also have several
important inclusions such as James Wray, Andrew Coombe and Rhys Bennett.
Laharum coach Marcus Demaria said it would be hard to contain his team, with Shannon Argall in deadly form and fellow talls Bennett and Jason Przibilla surrounding him.
"It's still a game we really want to win and it's going to be important to get a bit of momentum," he said.
"The past couple of years they've really stepped up come finals time, but I don't think them knocking us out last year will have any effect on us at all.
"We've had strong wins against them in the home and away season so there's no psychological edge there."
