Ben Roddy is out to keep up his perfect grand final record in his last game.
He's already won two premierships with Tumut and will play his 144th and final first grade game for his hometown club against Southcity at Equex Centre on Sunday.
Coming off a standout performance in the preliminary final, where he scored four tries to beat Gundagai for the first time in nine years, the 31-year-old has no reservations about hanging up the boots no matter how the weekend unfolds.
"I think the mind is telling me it's time to go now," Roddy said.
"I've had a great career here in Tumut, the club has given me everything, but you don't always get to go out with a grand final but I think it would be nice thing to do."
Roddy revealed originally decided to retire after an injury-plagued 2018 but with the return of local faces Jacob Toppin, Lachlan Bristow and Jed Pearce he was convinced by Blues co-coaches Dean Bristow and Adam Pearce to have one more.
However he's far from focused on it being his last game and instead is determined to bring the premiership cup back to Tumut, a town brimming with grand final week buzz.
"It's not about me this week, I'm retiring but that doesn't matter," Roddy said.
"It's all about the team and hopefully we can bring a premiership home."
It's been nine long years since Roddy and the Blues have been through to a grand final.
He missed out on their 2007 premiership but was part of their titles in 2008 and 2010 and the centre never imagined it would take this long for the club to get back into a decider.
"We had a lot of success back in those years - in 03 we won, 07, 08 and 2010 - and when you see a lot of success in towns a lot people move on and retire so there has to be a period where you have got to rebuild," Roddy said.
"I could see a rebuilding phase happening but the club had some off years, times when we were struggling a lot but I'm not really sure I thought it would take nine years."
Moving away after just missing the finals in 2013 Roddy missed some of the club's lowest points.
And the club itself.
"I really missed football, playing for Tumut and it was a big hole," Roddy said. "It's more than a game in Tumut, we live and breath rugby league here, it is a lifestyle."
They've tasted a lot more success since his return in 2017, where they went from wooden spooners to preliminary finalists in a season.
He's one of the few Blues to have experienced a grand final and is looking to impart some of that knowledge before working out what lies ahead.
"It's changed a lot for me now," Roddy said.
"Back in 2008 and 2010 I was only a kid and I felt lucky as I had a lot of quality players around me and a lot of older heads that laid it on a platter for me, to a degree.
"Now I've come back in 2017 as one of the older ones and few a responsibility to give the younger kids in the team the opportunities I had when I was younger."
