FEDERAL is almost guaranteed to host the first final after toppling Tumbarumba by 67 points on Saturday.
The victory elevated the Swans to third spot on the ladder with Federal taking on Cudgewa in the final round and Tumbarumba meeting Bullioh.
"It was a really good effort by the boys," coach Steve Fouracre said.
"Both sides were pretty keen to get a home final so it was pleasing to come out on top.
"We had one of our best sides for the season and it certainly helped having a bench."
Big Keiran Brennan dominated for the victors.
With Steve Bradshaw ruled out for the season through injury, Brennan starred in the air and capped off a best on ground performance with three goals.
"He's been fantastic for us," Fouracre said.
"He travels to play when he can and just gives us a big target.
"I thought he was great."
Federal midfielders Tom McKimmie and Andrew Saliba were effective, racking up possessions and drifting forward to kick seven goals between them.
Ben Jones, Colin Finemore and Josh Jarvis also played key roles.
Tumbarumba were best served by Cameron Johnston, Darcy Rixon, Jock Rixon, James Crozier and Travis Collison.
"Tumbarumba's a good side so we will need to play well again when we play them in a few weeks," Fouracre said.
"Both of us will be keen to win a final."
Bullioh hammered Corryong by 280 points with Ash Murray landing 17 goals.
The haul took his season tally to 129 for the season with the Bulldog eyeing another bag in the final round against Tumbarumba.
It was Murray's biggest return of the season, bettering his 15 majors against Border-Walwa and Federal on May 4 and June 22 respectively.
