Cobden faces an extra test when it takes on Port Fairy in Saturday’s preliminary final.
The Bombers won the previous encounter by 22 goals in round 10, but a lot has changed since then.
And coach Nadine McNamara knows it.
"Port Fairy has a different line-up that we haven't faced yet, so we are wary of that," she said.
"I went along and looked at the elimination final and the semi, so it was great to have a look from the outside at their systems and plays."
McNamara said despite not playing the new-look Seagulls it was likely the same players who would cause headaches.
"They have a few key players and will be looking to Narelle (Marsden) as a great target, so our defensive pressure in the mid-court needs to be consistent,” she said.
"And obviously they have got Carly (Watson) at goal defence who has had a stellar year and she is quite dynamic and manages to create a lot of turnovers.”
The winner of Saturday’s final will meet with Koroit in next week’s grand final at Reid Oval.
