Cobden's Gary Rohan, Dartmoor's Jeremy Cameron and Camperdown's Easton Wood are a step closer to an AFL grand final berth.
Geelong's Rohan and Cameron will face Melbourne in a preliminary final on Friday night at Perth's Optus Stadium.
The Geelong duo kicked two goals each as the Cats defeated Greater Western Sydney 15.13 (103) to 10.8 (68) in a semi-final at Optus Stadium on Friday night.
Cameron, who was playing against his former team for the first time, kicked a wonderful snap goal from long range after playing on.
He's looking forward to the clash with the Dees.
"That's why you play football for the really big games like this, it's going to be huge," he told Fox Footy.
"We didn't play them too long ago, it was only a couple of weeks back so it's pretty fresh in the memory.
"They stream-rolled us late so there were plenty of learnings out of that game as well and we're looking for a good showing."
Giants mentor, Leon Cameron, who hails from Warrnambool, said his group was brave.
"The disappointing thing was every quarter they just got us by a goal or two - whether that's experience and (doing) the right thing at the right time - trying to make up ground was hard," he said.
"We hung in there and were really courageous because we didn't roll over and kept on fighting until the end.
"It's a learning curve we were a young team tonight. I'm really proud of them, they had a crack against a really mature side that does the right thing at the right time probably a lot more than what we did tonight."
Meanwhile, it was euphoria for Camperdown product Easton Wood and heartbreak for South Warrnambool export Hugh McCluggage on Saturday night at the Gabba.
Wood's Western Bulldogs won a thrilling 11.13 (79) to 11.12 (78) semi-final to book a preliminary final clash against Port Adelaide at Adelaide Oval.
Power coach, Ken Hinkley, will be another Camperdown product involved in that match. And Koroit's Willem Drew is a Port Adelaide player to keep an eye out for.
Bulldogs coach Luke Beveridge described it as a crazy game and felt his group did a tremendous job in holding its nerve in the dying stages.
"Sometimes this game is really cruel and sometimes it's beautiful and we were the lucky ones to feel the emotions of the ladder and Brisbane have been quite remarkable in recent times," he said.
"So to beat such a formidable opponent in a big game, it ranks right up there."
Another positive for the south-west is that Cobden product Sam Walsh, of Carlton, came runner-up to Marcus Bontempelli in the AFL Players Association MVP award.
Meanwhile, Terang Mortlake export Lewis Taylor was this week named Sydney Swans' VFL player of the year at the Bob Skilton awards ceremony.
