It's finally become a reality for the Mudgee Dragons after a season long push to get to the one, the only, Group 10 grand final.
After holding the Orange Hawks to a 14-0 silencer in the preliminary final last weekend, the red and white outfit will march on in to meet the Bathurst Panthers for the almighty clash.
One of the Dragons' leading players, Jared Robinson says while getting to the final stage of the season is a credit to the side, they've got one more win until it's time to sing the song of champions.
"Obviously grand finals are the pinnacle of any sport, so to be down to the final two teams is a massive effort," Robinson said.

While the start of the year was less than ideal with occasions of narrow losses and 'silly mistakes', Robinson says they've well and truly kicked into gear right when it all matters.
"We have been a little bit up and down this year, but we've always had the squad be competitive on our day," he said.
Luckily, we saved one of our better performances for the weekend.
Last time the Dragons danced with the Panthers was in the first round of the finals, where the Bathurst side came out on top serving up a 40-18 flogging.
Robinson admits Bathurst don't make many errors which will make for a tough match, but says the Dragons are well aware of what they're going to do to better their chances.
"Panthers are a great side, they don't make many mistakes and have good second phase play, so we need to be really good in the middle and take our chances when we get them," he said.
"They are very good at building pressure. They complete sets and don't give many penalties away.
They are the defending premiers so with all that comes pressure to deliver, we just need to turn up and play footy.
"Key is building on the back of last weekend's performance in the big dance. If everyone plays their own part and does their job we will give ourselves every chance.
"We need to build pressure and allow ourselves to stay in the game."
The Mudgee Dragons will play the Bathurst Panthers in the 2019 Group 10 grand final clash at Carrington Park with a 3pm kick-off.
The club's supporters bus will be leaving from the Club Mudgee carpark at 12.30pm.
"Anything can happen on grand final day," Robinson said.
