He's usually giving away size and experience on his rivals, but Lewis Arragon won't let that daunt him on grand final day.
Arragon will line up in his first grand final of any description as Tumut look to end their nine-year title drought against Southcity at Equex Centre on Sunday.
They ended their nine-year hoodoo against Gundagai to make it through and the 20-year-old can't wait for what lies ahead.
"It's very exciting," Arragon said.
"I haven't played in a grand final before and we've been building to it for a couple of years with our group full of local boys.
"Everyone is really close and it makes it that much better."
He's far from the biggest member of the Blues forward pack, but he doesn't let that stop him.
His work rate is a big part of making the side come together and being a smaller member of the side isn't exactly a new experience.
"I try and get through as much work as I can to help the bigger boys out," Arragon said.
"I've never been big throughout my life and have just been a bit smaller so it's just how it has been so it doesn't really worry me too much."
Arragon is part of the next generation of Blues looking to leave their mark.
Coming through the ranks with a handful of teammates in Tom Jeffery, Riley Sturt, Michael Clark, Brayden Draber and Austin McDougall, they are looking to start a new period of success.
Arragon wasn't even a teenager when the Blues last made a grand final.
They won four premierships in eight seasons with premierships in 2003, 2007-08 and 2010 but haven't been back to the big stage yet.
They get the chance now and the relatively late beginner in the sport is looking to take it.
Arragon grew up playing rugby union and hockey and it wasn't until the move to the seniors that he joined the Blues.
"I only started playing league at 15," he said.
"I was playing union and hockey on Saturdays but once league moved to Sundays I started playing it.
"It was the one I liked the most."
Arragon has started at lock for large periods of the season but has been used off the bench in the finals series.
The 20-year-old doesn't mind what role he plays for the team.
"It doesn't worry me whether I'm starting or on the bench," Arragon said.
"If that's what I've got to do with the team then I'm happy to do it."
He's looking to keep it simple ahead of the clash with the Bulls, a side who beat them earlier in the finals.
