Robbie Mortimer will walk into work at Catherine McAuley next Monday and there standing in the tea room will be Ted Kelly - CYMS royalty.
The 82-year-old is known for not taking a backward step, just ask the Great Britain frontrow he went toe-to-toe with in 1966 at Parkes.
Simply, if Mortimer puts a foot wrong during CYMS' season opener against St Pat's on Sunday, Kelly will let him know.
"I might have to come in a bit earlier and get the low down," Mortimer smiles.
Talking footy on a Monday isn't a new thing at work. It would happen at every office, every work site, every school in the bush.
But few get the chance to do it like Kelly and Mortimer - two CYMS premiership winners that played the game, for the same club, half a century apart.
Kelly was a hooker in the green and gold during the late 1950s and 1960s, representing Group 10 and Western Division during his time at the club.
He was part of the side that won in 1959 and, depending on who you ask, was the man most responsible for the club ending one of its finest decades with a fifth title.
"I broke my arm in the semi-final and they found my brother who'd been in retirement and he came along and won every scrum," Kelly recalls.
"As Tommy Cummins says, I was responsible for us winning. ... because I didn't play."
It's there you get the feeling Mortimer's in for a few bumpy conversations at morning tea on a Monday - Kelly's not afraid to put the boot in, even if the target is himself and the topic is one of his fondest memories on a snowy day at Parkes.
Against Great Britain in 1966 with the likes of Cliff Watson and Tommy Bishop on the field, it was Kelly who produced the best try of the game.
"I was the dummy half and threw it to our winger," he smiled during a pause.
"And I didn't see their winger coming and he went 90 metres to score ... definitely the best try of the match."
It's stories like these Mortimer hears on a near daily basis.
Kelly loves the nostalgia, so does Mortimer, and so when the former Western Division rake begins to look back he holds the room ... everyone is on the edge of their seat.
Morning tea time at McAuley is as much a CYMS history lesson as it is a chance to grab a coffee.
There's laughter when Kelly recalls the time, at Cowra, when Brian Maloney, the father of current Panthers and NSW five-eighth James Maloney, attempted to fire up his CYMS side ahead of a semi-final at Sid Kallas Oval.
A massive game in the late 1980s, Maloney played the CYMS boys a motivational tape before kick-off in a bid to fire them up against the Magpies.
CYMS are the be-all and end-all as far as I'm concerned. We've been with them forever.Green and gold royalty Ted Kelly.
It work, too.
"... they all went out and Brian went bang-bang-bang and off he went in the first three minutes," Kelly says, "it'd be the record for quickest send off in CYMS history."
That history is what drives Kelly. He lives and breathes it, and every time he mentions the club he says "us".
So despite finishing up as a player in 1966, there's no two ways about it, Kelly is still CYMS through-and-through.
It's as much Kelly's club as it is Mortimer's, or the throng of young CYMS players coming through the ranks at McAuley, too.
"I think one of the best things about the club is we treasure our history and I'm looking forward to being able to sit where Ted is in 20 years time and present a jersey to a young bloke who plays in the same position as I did," Mortimer adds.
A lot of the young blokes Mortimer speaks of he is currently teaching at McAuley. The 2019 CYMS first division coach is helping the school's Year 6 group and says football has been an incredible help with his new profession.
"It's been really rewarding," he said.
"A lot of the kids I saw around footy I didn't know they went to school here. Kids that run us out or run the ball. Footy is so big in country communities."
For some footy's big, for others it's everything - Kelly is a champion of the latter.
"It means a lot to me, the club," Kelly said, a readers' group assistant at the school.
"CYMS are the be-all and end-all as far as I'm concerned. We've been with them forever. They've always been a great club, great people, great coaches."
One of those great coaches has obviously moved on in 2019, though, and in place of five-time premiership winning mentor Mick Sullivan CYMS will this winter be guided by Dom Maley.
"It's probably the freshen up we needed, and I say that with the utmost respect to Mick," Mortimer said.
"I think we might have been a bit complacent with a few things and Dom has brought in a new attitude and a high expectation. We have our drive and our hunger back.
"Having that uncertainty with positions, it makes you drive a bit harder. It's been a tough pre-season but we feel better for it."
It's a sentiment Kelly shares, with hard training twice a week back in the 1950s - albeit under the lighting of a few car headlights - often the catalyst for successful CYMS seasons during his time at the club 50 years ago.
Will it work again?
Only time will tell in 2019, but one thing is for certain - Kelly will be there to watch it all unfold and he'll take particular interest in how his work mate fares in the colours he loves so much.
"I still watch us, oh god yes," the CYMS legend says with a wry grin.
It's a smile Mortimer will see plenty of every Monday morning this season.
