Rugby Union is just about the last side you want to run into nowadays.
The boys from Bathurst are firing on all cylinders and look in pole position to threaten for not only a Bathurst Orange Inter District title, but a T20 Royal Hotel Cup one as well.
It's been 15 years since Ryan Peacock's men made it all the way to a T20 decider but heading into Friday night's grand-final qualifier against CYMS, they're an odds on shot to do so.
The Wade Park clash will be one of the green and golds' biggest tests all season as they'll need to produce with the bat in order to keep up with the red hot visitors.
And while the likes of the Qureshi boys and Peacock look primed to make inroads on the scoresheet, so do several CYMS players.
Skipper Hugh Le Lievre has called in one of his better starting side this campaign as the likes of Vusi Sibanda and Jack Cale are set to add to an already potent squad.
Throw Tom Belmonte, Dave Neil and Ryan Delaney into the mix, and you've got a side capable of putting up 160 at a batter's' friendly venue.
And according to all-rounder Jack Cale, that's exactly what will be required.
"Hopefully we can bat first and put the pressure on them," Cale said.
"We'll have to execute really well but we'd love to get up around 150-160. When you get the run rate up to 7-8 an over, that's tough to chase.
"If we can get more than that then we will."
Cale has only played one T20 game this season, a one-run cameo against Lithgow Lightning back in round three.
But it's been his BOIDC efforts that's got people talking, the Sydney-based ring-in scoring 61, 51 and 69 in three efforts.
What's made the trio of knocks even more impressive is Cale's position on the batting order as he's been as low as 10 on more than one occasion.
"All through school I batted in the top four or five... when I go out there I just back myself," he said.
"If the ball's in my zone I'm going to hit it and see how I go. I don't really have anything to lose."
Cale is the cousin of Tom and Harry West and finds himself at Orange every summer to work at the cherry orchard.
He ordinarily coaches a school cricket team in the city but found time to take the trip West as he hopes to help the green and golds qualify for the grand final.
"If we can win on Friday I'll be pushing hard to come back for the next game as well," he said.
In addition to wielding the willow, Cale bowls right-arm pace and produced six maiden overs in a round seven meeting with Centrals.
The T20 eliminator is set to kick off at 6.30pm at Wade Park.
The winner will face Orange City in the grand final.
