Geurie coach Paul Hausia knows Wellington will play for the full 80 minutes this weekend but that doesn't mean he sees the Redbacks as his side's biggest opposition in the Oilsplus Cup Northern Division grand final.
The biggest thing standing in the Goats' way of back-to-back titles is themselves.
The Goats secured a spot in the decider in last weekend's preliminary final win over Molong, but a lack of discipline almost cost Hausia's side in that contest.
It's been an ongoing issue for much of the season, but the coach just needs his players to put it all together for one game now.
"I've told them those one-percenters will kill us," Hausia said.
"We're only going to defeat ourselves. People might blame the referee but it's our actions that get us in that position.

"The faster we can stop those penalties the easier it will be. If we minimise that and give the ball a hell of a lot more respect than we have this season we'll get the result.
Maintaining that composure will be extra difficult given the decider is being played between two fierce rivals.
Wellington won this season's minor premiership, but go into the decider at home without a win over Geurie yet in 2019.
The Goats scored a convincing 31-3 in a heated round two battle, before the two sides played out a gripping 22-all draw in mid-June.
The result back in round three marked the only time the Redbacks lost on their march to the minor premiership.
This time last year it was the Goats who had finished as minor premiers and were hosting the decider.
They went on to down the Redbacks 28-12 in an emotional first premiership win.
Despite that being a momentous occasion in the club's history, Hausia feels a title win in 2019 would be more satisfying.
The Goats haven't had things all their own way this season, like they did during last year's unbeaten campaign, as they've had a target on their back and have had to deal with player unavailability on an all too regular occurrence.
"There's been weeks when we've had just 13 on the field while waiting for blokes to turn up," Hausia said.
"The most we've had at a game is 22 when we've had about 30 registered.
"But it's the thing we've instilled in the last three years, that black wall. The defence.
"I've always said defence wins games, no matter the sport."
Kick-off in Saturday's Olisplus Cup Northern Division decider is at 3.15pm at Wellington's Bicentennial Park. Cootamundra host Harden in the Oilsplus Cup South-West Division decider.
