The Blayney Bears must have one goal and one goal only in 2020 - get the monkey off the back, and early.
The club didn't win a game in premier league last winter, and ended the first division season with the same winless record, too, meaning the club's Group 10 goals ahead of another campaign out of King George Oval are pretty simple.
New captain-coach Mick Nixon has his fingers crossed the club enjoys an injury free season - and with quality like former Wests Tigers backrower Kyle Lovett on board, and some seasoned, Papua New Guinea players on the way, there's bound to be more starch in the Bears' pack this season.
But in the future, the returning Bears skipper says Group 10 may need to look at a salary cap to ensure the longevity of small-town clubs like his.
Michael Nixon's set of six ...
CWD: What needs to go right for your club to be crowned Group 10 premiers?
MICK NIXON: We would need a relatively injury free season, however this year is more about building for us and trying to get a competitive side back on the paddock.
CWD: Who's the player to watch from your club in 2020?
MN: The players to watch for us this year are the two Hobby brothers.
Lochie and Joe are both full of potential and if we can keep them both fit and their confidence high they will have a big impact for us this year.
CWD: Which game have you got circled in your calendar and why?
MN: No game in particular - we are just planning to take each week as it comes.
CWD: Which opposition player do you think is the most dangerous in the competition?
MN: I think Daniel Mortimer will be one to watch as he returns to Orange this year.
CWD: What would you like to see change in Group 10 in 2020
MN: There could be maybe one or two weeks where the order of the games is changed and league tag is played as a curtain raiser for first grade.
It's a growing sport and it would be good for the girls to play in front of a big crowd.
CWD: Do you think more needs to be done to help smaller clubs such as Oberon
MN: This is a hard one because in my opinion the biggest thing smaller towns struggle with is getting numbers to play, and with bigger clubs having larger funds it makes it harder to sign players who can be offered more elsewhere.
I think something along the lines of a salary cap could be introduced to make an even playing field for all clubs.
