It is amazing what can happen to a quality women’s team when a few extra WAFLW-hardened players are added into the mix.

Just ask the Harvey Bulls.

Bolstered by the inclusion of the experienced Greta McKinley from Peel Thunder and long-term local Yana Guretti from East Fremantle, Peter Jones’ side rolled to a convincing 16.15 (111) to 0.1 (1) win over the basement-bound Dunsborough Sharks.

Throw in Peel stalwart Krystal Carter to that list and the Bulls have quietly formed a number of key players who know how to produce in big games.

And Saturday afternoon against Carey Park at Kelly Park is one of these occasions, with a victory essentially ensuring the Bulls will finish third with a home elimination final.

The Panthers, who are two games adrift of fourth-placed Donnybrook, need a few things to go their way in order to play finals.

Should they cause an upset over the Bulls on Saturday, it would mean their aspirations would come down to the final day of the season away to Donnybrook.

If they lose, their season is over.

While the game is likely to be competitive given what is at stake, the Bulls’ sheer variety of forward options is likely to make things difficult for an improving Panthers defensive unit.

Bouncedown is at 3.10pm on Saturday.
