Tumut are looking for their forward power to come to the fore in order to become the first side to get the better of Southcity this season.
The Bulls host the Blues in the top-of-the-table clash at Harris Park on Sunday.
Tumut welcome back Zac Masters and Ron Leapai from Country duty, while Cody Hodge is back from the representative arena for the ladder leaders.
However the Blues will be without Jed Pearce (knee), with Matt Byatt retaining his place in the starting side.
Co-coach Lachlan Bristow is looking to use their forward depth to try to counteract the strong Southcity backline.
"We've got a pretty good squad and the beauty of it is we have depth and guys who can step up once guys are injured or becomes unavailable," Bristow said. "(Byatt) started well and is another big body so we don't lack that in the middle even if we are missing a couple of our best."
The Bulls are averaging over 44 points a game and the 24 points they conceded against Young last week is more than what was scored on them in their first three games.
Bristow is looking to limit Southcity's backline by putting pressure on through the middle.
"We have to shut them down in the forwards to not let their back line get any good ball," Bristow said.
"Everyone in the back line needs to be aware of their own job and just take on the individual challenge with their opposite number," he said.
