THEY’VE dropped just one game for the year, by two points to Shepparton East in round 12, but have been near perfect every other week this year.
Damian Payne just wants Tungamah to put it together one more time.
Saturday shapes as a historic day for the Bears, with the club featuring in all four of the Picola South East league’s football grand finals.
In the case of the seniors, Payne is keeping things simple ahead of their clash with Waaia.
“How you got to a grand final, is how you win it,” the Tungamah coach said.
“We can’t do any more now and just need to stick to what we know.
“You don’t change anything because it’s the grand final.
“It’s the one week you hope you’re involved in at the start of the year and we’re lucky enough to be there.”
Payne wants things to be as normal as possible come Saturday, but some things will be different.
He knows that.
“We know it’s going to be really intense early,” Payne said.
“They’re a good side and we definitely have to play good footy to win.
“They’ve got a very potent forward line and great midfielders who set them up.”
Payne said the Bears were likely to take an unchanged line-up into the decider.
“We’ve been lucky enough to have no injuries,” he said.
Meanwhile, in the North West, Strathmerton and Blighty will face off in the preliminary final on Saturday.
The Red Eyes only just got over Deniliquin Rovers in Sunday’s knockout semi-final and made it through with a thrilling two-point triumph.
The Demons await the winner of Saturday’s final in this year’s decider.
