TWO Warrnambool-based sides will go head-to-head for a spot in the Limestone Coast Rugby League grand final.
Warrnambool Raiders and Gunditjmara Bulls will clash at Purnim Recreation Reserve on Saturday. Reigning premier Naracoorte Jets and Horsham Panthers will meet in the other cut-throat final.
Gunditjmara Bulls vice-president Coedie Carter-Clarke said his team, which fell to Naracoorte 22-10 in their first final, was excited to meet the Raiders.
The Raiders finished atop the ladder and had a week's rest.
"We are expecting a lot of physical pressure with the Raiders being a large side and they have a lot of skill," Carter-Clarke said.
"We have to play our way and to our game plan. We haven't managed to get over them this year."
Carter-Clarke, who plays full-back and wing, said the mandatory 13-player rule for finals suited the Bulls.
"Throughout the season you can elect to play 11 or 13 and in finals you have to play 13," he said.
The Raiders-Bulls clash is at 1.30pm Saturday with the Jets and Panthers at 3pm.
