If Avenel is going to break two long hoodoos when it hosts Nagambie on Saturday, it is going to have to do so off the back of perhaps its worst performance this year.

The Swans travelled to Murchison on Saturday, knowing a win against the slumping reigning premiers would seal their first finals berth since 2004.

Instead it was the Grasshoppers who re-ignited their title defence, breaking a run of losses when hit by injury to thrash Avenel by 88 points.

With former Nagambie-ite Harley Taylor-Lloyd booting nine goals in a breakout performance, it left the Swans needing to score their first win over the Lakers since 2007 to confirm a top six spot.
