When you take a look down the Orange City line-up selected for this weekend's preliminary final, you see most of the regular names; Ed Morrish, Blake Weymouth, Dave Boundy.
But there is one name that watchers of this year's Bathurst Orange Inter District Cricket competition may not be familiar with. That is Troy O'Keeffe.
The City wicket keeper started the year in third grade and has only played the one match for the top side all season.
But after the loss of Jaymes Thomas (moved), Lachlan Coyte (moved) and Ben Findlay (injured), O'Keeffe was called up.
"I probably laughed to begin with," O'Keeffe said of getting the call-up in the final round of the season.
"It definitely wasn't something I was expecting to be doing this season, but any way you can help your club then you do what you can."
The last time O'Keeffe was a regular in the first grade line-up was back in the 2011/12 season. But he hopes that experience can help push City over the line against Rugby in their do-or-die matchup.
"I think I add to that experience of being there before, playing a lot of finals cricket throughout the grades and playing first grade for the club when we weren't in as good a position depth-wise and result wise as we've been over these previous years," he said.
"It's definitely a giant tick of the box at this stage of my career. A good thing to do again before you finish up and you're too old or broken down to play that level of cricket."
A win at Wade Park will mean they face St Pat's in the grand final. A loss and they go home.
They are in this position after the semi-finals were washed out.
City captain Ed Morrish would have liked to secure that automatic grand final spot. But he believes the week off did his side some good.
"After a pretty hectic season, especially for us as we've had a lot of injuries and disruption to our team, a lot of it's fallen on a few shoulders," he said.
"I think the week off has been pretty good to us and it's helped us refresh.
"It also put us in a precarious situation of win or go home. We would've loved that shot last week to put ourselves into a grand final but it's not to be."
Rugby and City split the regular season series with one win a piece.
As City finished higher on the ladder, a rained out weekend would mean they go through to the grand final. But that's the furthest thing from Morrish's mind.
"Rain doesn't change anything for us," he said.
"We know Wade Park is probably the one ground that will get through rain. I have no doubt that we will play on a good deck."
The game will be played across Saturday and Sunday.
