Griffith assistant coach Tom Groves says the Swans can prove they are a finals-quality side with an upset against ladder leaders Mangoplah-Cookardinia United-Eastlakes at Exies Oval on Saturday.
The Swans saw their hopes of making the Riverina League top five disappear with an 81-point loss to Collingullie-Glenfield Park last week.
With two rounds left, Griffith could be forgiven for going through the motions, but Groves believes they can prove a point against the Goannas this weekend and the second-placed Wagga Tigers in the final round.
The Goannas thumped Griffith by 52 points when they last met in round eight, but Groves said the premiership heavyweights could be vulnerable.
“It’s a long trip to get here,” Groves said.
“They may not have a full side.
“We’ve got a good chance to let everyone know we should’ve been in finals these next two weeks and knock off the two top sides.
“We want to finish off on a positive note because there’s always next year to look forward to.”
The Swans had high hopes heading into 2015 and hovered in or around the top five for the majority of the season.
A long injury list hurt Griffith’s premiership campaign, but close losses to Leeton-Whitton, Coolamon and Ganmain-Grong Grong-Matong, along with a draw against the Lions, proved more costly.
