The 'mountain men' of North Wagga, Jimmy Morris and Tom 'Pepe' Bennetts, will reach the end of a journey on Saturday, one they hope to celebrate in style.
After travelling from Tumut for two seasons, the grand final will bring down the curtain on a successful career for Morris, including three senior premierships with Collingullie.
"I'm welcoming it, I'm keen, I'm ready to finish," Morris said. "I know 30's young in a way but I moved to Tumut last year so I'm ready to hang them up."
He says it's time for new interests, and already he travels enough with work.
Not that that will ever stack up to his time on the road with Bennetts.
"Tom fancies himself on the tunes, so we listen to a lot of music, talk a bit of rubbish," Morris said.
They talk a little footy. A little more than usual last week when Bennetts was given the role of playing on Marrar ruckman Nick Molkentin.
"Being in the ruck, I spoke to him about it on the way home because I was pretty sore and battered and felt like I could've done a bit better," Bennetts said.
"He gave me a few pointers and things, he's always good. And when I needed a chop-out on the weekend, he'd go in and give me a break.
"It's worked out really well, having someone to travel down with, and we get along outside footy. It's been real good. We've both formed a bit of a connection with everyone and they like to call us the mountain men from Tumut. It's a bit of a stitch-up."
Bennetts, 22, said he wasn't sure, or wasn't revealing, at least, what the Saints' plans are to minimise the impact of East Wagga-Kooringal's man mountain, Nick Hull on Saturday.
Making sure their pressure acts are right up, and remaining composed at the same time, will lay a platform for success.
Beyond that, he isn't certain of his 2020 plans either, so this grand final is every chance of marking the end his time at McPherson Oval. He's love to send Morris out a winner as well as coach Kirk Hamblin.
"Kirky's such a ripping bloke and a great coach. I feel like there'd be no better repayment from us for everything he's given us," he said. "He says he'll be proud of us either way but to give him that, deep down, it would bring him to tears I reckon when the siren goes.
"And for Moz, him calling it a day, I reckon he'd just love it! He could look back, have no regrets, and all the travelling will have been worth it."
Morris came to the Saints to link up with his old mate Hamblin, after they'd played at Culcairn, and enjoy a change of scenery.
"Life's too short. I thought, I'll go and have a run somewhere else, meet a few new boys. I obviously met Tom..." he says.
He's also met those at North Wagga who are crying out for success. Morris doesn't take his own flags for granted, particularly having lost three grand finals as well. Most importantly, he knows what it would mean to those at the Saints who have been waiting since 1994.
"One hundred percent, the old boys who get around like Whyte (Shane Whyte) and Bunge Winter. They're more excited than us and I think it would mean a lot to them," Morris said.
"They get their old crew over here (on the eastern side) under their awnings and carry on. To them - I see it in their eyes, what it would mean to them."
Morris says the only secret about winning grand finals is 'good sides'. And a bond between teammates. It's something he saw at 'Gullie, and again in just two years at the Saints.
"It's been unreal. Everyone gets along and you spend all your time together. I'll probably miss that the most," Morris said.
"I reckon if you watch training, you'll see it. Everyone just loves each other. It's a bromance, for sure."
