LAUNCESTON midfielder Joe Boyce believes the Blues' ability to grind out wins in pressure situations in their past two matches will stand them in good stead against South Launceston today.
The 23-year-old builder has racked up about 75 games with the Blues since joining the club from Scottsdale in 2010 and has been a consistent performer this season through the midfield and across half-forward.
Boyce said today's second semi- final against the Bulldogs would be a tough game and would need a four-quarter effort if the Blues are to win.
He said the club had a good mix of talent and should be able to cover the losses of coach Brennan Savage and defender Gene Savage.
"We're not at our best yet but we're improving.
"I still think I've got some improvement to come in my own form but I love playing finals - it's what you wait all year for.
"I love playing on Aurora and enjoy a lot more space to run - the team that is able to sustain better pressure for the longest will win."
