Rava was on hand to watch the Demons overrun Leeton-Whitton last Sunday to set up a clash with Tigers at Robertson Oval.

Rava is fully aware of howdangerous the Demons are.

“We’ve got to control our own game plan first and foremost, but Gullie are certainly a dangerous side,” Rava said.

“Similar to when we’ve been challenged, no matter where they are in a game, and Leeton were in total control at half-time on the weekend, they’re able to get themselves going, and they run out games really well.”

Tigers, renowned as a hard-running side, ran out of legs in last week’s second semi-final loss to Mangoplah-Cookardinia United-Eastlakes.

Rava has had time to dissect the loss and believes the problem may have been above the shoulders.

“We’ve changed our training nights, did some yoga on Monday and had shorter sessions but higher intensity,” Rava said.

“I’ve had a chat to the boys and I think (last week) was more of a mental thing, a, mental lapse more than a physical thing.”

Shaun Flanigan remains no certainty to return for Tigers on Sunday.
