Yackandandah will be out to carry its strong post-Christmas form into Saturday's preliminary final against Corowa.
The Kangaroos have lost only two games in the New Year, to Baranduda and Dederang in rounds 13 and 17 respectively.
The grand finalists defeated Kiewa in successive weeks, including the semi.
"Our form's been good once we started to get everyone back on the park, particularly the last two weeks," captain Andrew Lockett said.
"All of us at some point have been missing two-three games, Cooper Garoni and Russ Odewahn were away, myself through injury."

Corowa, which claimed last year's premiership after the grand final was washed out, was part of the Kangaroos' stretch of wins.
Yackandandah posted 2-135 and then skittled Corowa for 89.
"It probably gives us confidence we can win there, but now that it's a final, it probably doesn't have much bearing," Lockett said.
Yackandandah's attack rolled Kiewa for 150 and 145.
Meanwhile, Kiewa will look to bounce back when it travels to Baranduda in the other sudden death clash.
