Stepping into a more senior role for Gundagai this season, Tyron Gorman is looking to end it on a premiership high.
Gorman has shouldered much more of the playmaking responsibilities this year.
Moving back into halves, after spending last season in the centres, he’s stepped into the chief playmaking role with James Smart either mostly at fullback or out injured.
Despite the changes he doesn’t feel his role has altered too much heading into his fifth grand final.
“I played five-eighth when we won it in 2015 so I’ve played a lot in the halves,” Gorman said.
“It was just last year when I was in the centres.
“It’s been a little bit different but at the same time it is exciting.”
At 23, Gorman has played in more grand finals than most dream of, but has only tasted success once.
His first attempt was as an 18-year-old in 2013 before being part of the Tigers drought-breaking premiership two years later.
After falling should against Southcity in the past two seasons he’s looking looking to add another win against Southcity at Equex Centre to his resume on Saturday.
In 2015, Gorman had the experienced Chris Rose alongside him but now he’s be partnership by makeshift five-eighth Blake Dunn.
With Dunn playing much more like a forward than a traditional six it leaves Gorman to do a lot more of playmaking.
However he’s relished stepping up for his junior club.
“It has been a challenge but it has been good,” Gorman said. “I’ve enjoyed it so far and hopefully I can steer the boys to another victory.”
Gundagai are yet to defeat Southcity this season, but that doesn’t bother the 23-year-old.
“I’ve got 100 per cent confidence in the boys that we can do it,” Gorman said.
