Since claiming a memorable flag in 2014, Swifts have only one finals win to their name.
Their mission is to change that during the coming weeks.
The Baggies were bundled out in the first week of the finals by Edenhope-apsley last season but have rebounded this year to finish fifth on the ladder.
One of the side’s calling cards this year has been a stout team defence, conceding just 69 points a contest.
Co-coach Scott Carey said recruit Todd Matthews – lured to the club after years playing for the Wimmera Football League’s Stawell Warriors – had helped boost the Baggies’ backline.
“He has been a great inclusion this season,” Carey said.
“He’s been a bit of a general down back and given us a bit of a calming influence under pressure, which is one of the areas we identified from last season that we need to improve on.”
The gains made in the backline have helped offset the loss of forward Andrew Cameron, who departed for Great Western in the Mininera league before the start of the year.
But the Baggies’ forward line is far from bereft, with former coach Ben Martin spearheading the attack.
Martin has slotted 33 from his 12 games this season, including multiple bags of five and six.
Alongside Martin is the talented Zach Salmi, also 33 goals, while hard-running midfielders such as Carey and Ryan Folkes have also pushed forward to hit the scoreboard.
