All the rage at Canowindra has been about Kev Grimshaw's first-grade side, but it's the under-18s outfit that has a better record than any club in town.
Cal Clyburn's Youth League juggernaut is 9-0 throughout the start to the season and is well on track for not only a minor premiership, but a Woodbridge Cup crown.
The Tigers are fresh off a 32-10 win at Molong in round 11, and are preparing for a home game against the struggling Manildra Rhinos at Tom Clyburn Oval on Sunday.
Gun five-eighth Pedro Tapim is hugely responsibly for the team's success so far, and says there's only one goal in mind this season.
"I want to win a premiership with the boys this season and I think we've got the side to do it," Tapim said.
"Everyone's been working hard at training and I think that's why we're doing so well."
It's not as if there's a log jam at the top of the table as Canowindra's nearest rival, Cargo, is eight competition points behind them.
Having said that, Tapim still respects the Blue Heelers and says they're his squad's biggest threat this winter.
"They've been getting some new players lately," he said.
Tapim kicked off his rugby league career at Canowindra as a ten-year-old, before moving to Cowra for a stint with the Magpies.
But, for his last year of under-18s eligibility, he decided to play in his hometown and do everything he can to bring the Tigers a premiership.
He also plays for the Canowindra Pythons in the Oilsplus Cup, and has been backing up frequently for Kev Grimshaw's top-tier side.
Grimshaw and Clyburn have both acted as handy mentors for the youngster so far.
"Cal just wants us to have fun and play the game," he said.
"But, he definitely wants us to be competitive. He's making us all better players."
As for the first-grade outfit, Tapim thinks watching their success is a huge motivator.
"It's like a learning curve for me and a few of the boys," he said.
"We love to watch them play and learn a few things off them. It definitely helps my game."
Ahead of this weekend's tilt, Tapim understands the Rhinos are struggling, but still wants to iron out a few creases against them.
"Our discipline needs to be better," he said.
"I also want to work on our back line and the structure of it."
Manildra has a 2-7 record so far, but has kept it very close in its two games against Canowindra, losing 26-18 in round one and 18-10 in round eight.
Kick-off is 12.20pm.
