Swan Districts' exciting group of youngsters are eyeing the chance to make names for themselves on the big stage during the finals.
Swans go into Sunday's first semifinal against East Perth at Steel Blue Oval with a far less experienced line-up than their East Perth rivals.
But coach Greg Harding backed the likes of AFL draft prospects Dayle Garlett, Rory Lobb and Charlie Cameron to stand up and be counted in the hot finals environment.
Harding expected the bevy of stars in both sides and cutthroat nature of the first semifinal to play roles in attracting a crowd of up to 10,000.
"That's the really exciting thing about this week, we're going in against a club that is highly experienced and big-bodied," the coach said.
"Paul Johnson, Michael Swan, Craig Wulff - they've played hundreds and hundreds of games.
"We're going to go into this contest with a ruckman (Lobb) that's only played 11 games of WAFL footy. He's an absolute superstar this kid, but he's only just learning the game.
"Charlie Cameron's come from a background where he hasn't played any footy at all. He's been a rugby player and that's really exciting."
There is little doubt Garlett, 19, is the most exciting prospect in WA.
The left-footer was overlooked by AFL clubs last year after questionable off-field decisions overshadowed his considerable on-field exploits.
But Garlett has strengthened his prospects for draft day by combining stunning form for Swans with greater maturity away from the field inn 2013.
He has averaged 16 disposals from 18 games this season and kicked 45 goals to be a major force behind Swans' run to the finals.
Garlett has battled a virus over the past month, but is ready to set the finals alight.
"The kid's been amazing all year," Harding said.
"The way he's prepared himself and his behaviour on and off the field, he's been superb.
"This kid has got that look about him like he will really enjoy the challenge and enjoy the stage - and it will be a stage.
"These two clubs have got great supporter bases and I'd be really disappointed if we couldn't nudge 8000-10,000 people."
East Perth left the door open for Swans to pinch third spot and home-ground advantage for the first semifinal when they were beaten by seventh-placed South Fremantle in round 23.
Swans pounced with their win over West Perth last week and Harding said the familiar surrounds of Steel Blue Oval could prove crucial in determining the outcome of Sunday's game.
"In this season that it is so close every little advantage really counts and we think that securing that home final could just be that advantage that we're looking for, especially against a side that we're going to roll out against on the weekend," Harding said.
"It's experienced, it's got a hell of a lot of WAFL and AFL games under its belt and it's going to be very tough.
"To have that game at home is going to be really important."" we think that securing that home final could just be that advantage that we're looking for ...""Swan Districts coach *Greg Harding *
