After going down by a single point in last week's qualifying final against Hepburn, Springbank coach Garth Kydd is remaining positive.
The three-time premiership coach told The Courier his side's experience in tough finals situations has prepared the Tigers for anything finals can throw at them.
"It's something I've talked about all year," Kydd said.
"The experience our group has in big games playing together is our biggest advantage in finals."

Looking back at the Tigers' 38-37 loss to the Burras last week, Kydd is taking away the positives from what he said was far from his side's best performance.
"I think initially there was a feeling of disappointment... it was such an intense game last week but to go down by one point in the grand scheme of things is remarkable because they beat us by 17 goals earlier this season... that's a huge improvement going into finals.
"We knew we didn't play our best, the girls knew that there was probably something left in the tank after the game."
Springbank were able to close the gap many time across the game but were simply unable to capitalise on it's opportunities. Kydd said while it was good to see his group be able to perform well in parts of the game, he believes they need to remain playing as a unified team against Bungaree this weekend.
"It was good to see when we needed too we were able to play at a high intensity, we just took our foot off the pedal in a few key moments.
"During finals everyone is under immense pressure... during that time we need to remain unified even if someone makes a mistake or does something we don't like."
Coming up against the Demons, Kydd knows defensive pressure will be the key getting past Bungaree and moving on to face Learmonth in the preliminary finals.
"Pressure is going to be really important all over the court... we need to slow teams that are really whippy and try to go around us and put them in uncomfortable positions."
