This year's resurrection of The People's Choice Central West Rugby Union Team Of The Year continues with the No.8 position, the Central Western Daily's experts have thrown up some interesting names for this spot, and potentially some unheard ones too.
The five nominees are nonetheless superb though and you could easily mount an argument for any to be included.
Only one can though, so get behind your the No.8 you rated the highest, or enter your own nomination.
1 TOMMY AKTINSON (Coolah Roos)
Another of Coolah's bumper pack who took home big awards at the club's night of nights, Atkinson provides an interesting nomination for No.8 considering he also filled in at five-eighth when it was necessary.
You read that right, when it was required he shifted from No.8 to five-eighth - talk about versatility.
But when he was at No.8 he was magnificent and his performance was a massive reason the Roos surged in 2019 to make a finals appearance.
2 ALEX WEAL (Bathurst Bulldogs)
A former hooker who's shifted to the back-row, and even the centres, in recent years, Weal arguably had his best season in Bulldogs colours in 2019.
With a bumper forward pack in front of him Weal had the benefit of playing from the back of a set-piece that always went forward, and he continually proved to be a handful with the ball and an imposing figure without it.
Probably flew under the radar a bit this season with the likes of Peter Fitzsimmons and Justin Mobbs stealing the headlines, but his role in Bathurst's premiership win can't be underestimated.
3 JAKE CARTWRIGHT (Temora Tuskers)
Probably a bolt from the blue for a lot of readers, but not for any who watched Cartwright roll around for the Tuskers in this year's Oilsplus Cup South-West Division.
While as a side the Tuskers didn't reach the lofty heights of last year Cartwright went to another level in the back-row, he was Temora's best and his strength in the carry was shown with the sheer amount of tries he crossed for.
Leading into the last couple of rounds he was also the favourite to take home the player-of-the-year gong, although he was pipped in the end.
4 DUNCAN YOUNG (Orange City Lions)
Started the year on the side of the scrum but finished it at the back and, along with Rose, was outstanding.
The Lions had an even tougher year than 2018, this time going through winless, but Young's ever-consistent presence was a massive highlight.
He celebrated his 150th top grade appearance this season too and was among the Lions' best despite juggling rugby union with his 13-man commitments with Orange Hawks too.
5 BEC SMYTH (Narromine Gorillas)
So this one's interesting considering the Westfund Ferguson Cup was largely 10-a-side rugby and there technically isn't a No.8 in that form of the game, but being a back-rower by trade and impossible to leave out these nominations she had to fit somewhere.
In a 15-a-side format she'd more than likely line-up at No.8 anyway, potentially on the side, so she fits here and that's that, she was largely a back-rower for the Wallaroos too.
The former return to the field - she hadn't played for a number of years - sparked an incredible run from the Gorillas, who made it as far as the preliminary final in their maiden season.
Smyth was at the centre of everything in that run and her presence over the ball, bullocking carries and bruising defence would've intimidated even the competition's best.
