Last week, new Orange CYMS first division coach Anthony Redfern called it "bush footy spirit".
And like Tina Turner next to a pony-tail-clad saxophonist, it comes to him, comes to him wild and wired.
He's backing bush footy will be back bigger and better in 2021.
Up the highway - or across that Dixons Long Point goat-track, depending on which way you like to go - in Mudgee, young Dragons boss Sebastian Flack is singing from the same song sheet as the veteran CYMS prop.
After 12 months off, Flack and the Mudgee boys are seemingly raring to go.
So much so, Flack said he's "expecting to take out the comp in the top grade" in 2021. It's bold, it's brash and, to stick with the current Tina-circa-1995 motif, we hang on every word you say, Sebastian.
It's clear, after COVID-19 cruelled the 2020 Group 10 season, those involved in clubs across the region are eagerly anticipating its return in 2021.
The same clubs. The same competition format (for now). The same intensity. The same desire.
COVID-19 has come and, just about, gone and things will seemingly pick-up where they left off when Doug Hewitt lifted the Western Challenge trophy for the second time in consecutive seasons to lift Panthers into rarefied air as back-to-back Group 10 champions.
But the coronavirus will impact rugby league in NSW, particularly in regional areas.
I think you'll see a lot of people, there will be a real lift in numbers.New CYMS reserve grade mentor Anthony Redfern
Just how much has been the question on most people's lips since community sport was first put to the side in 2020 following the rapid spread of the virus in Australia during March and April.
We're now, touch wood, well on the other side of the worst outbreak.
And NSW enjoyed what many called 'freedom day' on Monday, with a swag of COVID-19 restrictions peeled back, completely in some respects ... so what for community sport?
There's no doubt rugby league in the region will change. Clubs come and go. Waves of players prop up inland regions before drifting back to the coast like the tide.
Will there be enough cattle for Group 10 to field nine competitive teams?
There's fears some players will have enjoyed the break a little too much, and waking up on a Monday with full body functionality will be too good a thing to give up.
As someone who's endured his fair share of injuries, Redfern can see that side of things.
He admits there will be a few "backs moving into the forwards" when the season recommences come the end of March after sitting in a good paddock for 12 months.
But he thinks players will return to bush footy in their droves across Group 10 to again lap up the social side of being part of a club.
It's that sense of community, being part of a club, COVID-19 hit the hardest.
"I think you'll see a lot of people, there will be a real lift in numbers," Redfern said ahead of CYMS' return to pre-season training at the end of November.
After declaring Dragons morals to win the comp when talking to the Big Sports Breakfast ahead of the Mudgee Cup last week, Flack gave a bit of an insight into why he thinks the red and whites will be tough to beat come 2021.
And it has nothing to do with quality on the field. It's all about the club. And being back together off the green paddock with white lines and two sets of posts at either end.
"It could be a positive, the effect (of the COVID-19 break), we had a lot of people not play sport and they're keen to go for next year's comp, which is good," he said.
Change, though, appears in the works when it comes to paying players, with Blayney already implementing a new system at King George Oval.
Designed to bring out the competitiveness in a new playing group, the Bears will give top dollar to their man of the match each week - and the wages trickle down from there on.
The move comes after veteran administrator and Group 10 board member Adam Hornby said, right across Western, clubs as a whole need to "pull our heads in" for the next 12 months in a bid to reel in excessive player payments.
Whether that happens, though, is another thing altogether.
Will Panthers big just as strong? Is Flack right ... will Mudgee get it right next winter? Can Blayney build? Will Hawks bounce back? Can St Pat's retain the swag of players they recruited for 2020? Will Mortimer lead a CYMS resurgence? And will Lithgow and Cowra throw it back to the glory days and show small towns belong in big competitions?
And then, of course, there's the biggest question of all ... will the new Western merger happen?
A joint, 15-team Western competition will be perhaps the biggest change in bush footy anywhere in a century of the game in regional NSW.
The proposal, drawn up by NSWRL and its One State Strategic plan, is not over the line yet. Far from it. And some clubs don't want a bar of it. Some would rather it be lost, or maybe even washed away (yes, more Tina).
But that question mark, and the others floated, will dominate 2021 ... and often the best part about these competitions is the questions tossed up ahead of each year.
COVID-19 will bring change, there's no doubt about that, but just what changes come to fruition will be the interesting part.
