JINDERA wingman Ryan Speed is expecting Osborne to “double team” full-forward Trent Castles in Sunday’s elimination final at Walbundrie.
Castles kicked 96 goals during the home and away series and is likely to have star backman Duncan McMaster dropping in front of him throughout the knockout final.
He kicked four goals in both clashes during the season.
“I think they will (double team),” he said.
“In the last few weeks teams have done that.
“I think that will be a common theme come this weekend.”
Castles will be hoping to become the second player in just over a week to bring up the 100-goal milestone after Henty’s Damian Cupido achieved the feat.
The former Albury and Yackandandah player has previously bagged 100 goals in 2015 and 2017.

Speed said Jindera were firmly focused on team goals rather than individual efforts ahead of Sunday’s match.
”We are going to have to put in a big four-quarter performance,” Speed said.
“Obviously we’ve had some good tussles with them like in last year’s grand final and even this year.
“Both sides are very competitive.
“I think it will be the team who runs the game out the best and really digs in deep and plays as a team will be the biggest thing.”
Jindera defeated Osborne by seven points in round three before the reigning premier ran-out 32-point victors in round 13.
Holbrook take on Culcairn in the first elimination final at Walbundrie on Saturday.
