Swans were pushed recently, but do Bulls have an extra gear?

AUSSIE RULES: Yeppoon Swans have a golden chance to win a fourth flag in succession.

But they have a mighty opponent in Glenmore Bulls who have been building at the right time of the year.

The Bulls have recruited well and have lived up to the building Bulls mantra at the start of the season.

Swans overcame Glenmore by 35 points to gain direct entry to the decider, but were two-points down at quarter-time and just three points ahead at half-time two weeks ago.

That's when the move of Eli Wells to centre half forward proved a master stroke by Yeppoon coach Mark Wallin.

The coach lauded the club as a whole, which will field five sides in grand finals.

"It's a huge effort from the club and from all the coaches and the players," he said.

"I think our club's in really good hands for the next 10 years."

Bulls' player-coach Nicholas Payne said intensity was key and he was confident his team would maintain it for four quarters.

"We're happy to go head-to-head with them and we have got the midfield depth to match them," he said.

"As long as we can keep Tom Cossens and James Malone quiet up forward."
