It's been a big 12 months for Simon Parr and he's looking to cap it with a premiership.
Parr was part of Southcity's reserve grade grand final win last season but could only watch on as the Bulls failed to make it three straight premierships.
After coming off the bench in their 2017 success, the front rower didn't play a minute of first grade last season.
However he hasn't missed a game this year, including starting in their last eight.
The 31-year-old maintained his place in the starting side despite the return of Nick Skinner and Hayden Jeans for the clash with Tumut at Equex Centre on Sunday.
He's pleased to hold onto the number 10 jersey.
"In my last one I was a last-minute call up for an injury and this one being part of it from the get go has added a little bit," Parr said.
"You always want to test yourself and the best way to do that is."
Parr has experienced the highs and lows of the club after first joining the Bulls in their early years.
However his consistency has been rewarded by Kyle McCarthy who has handed him a starting role for the first time in a decade.
This time around he's relishing a more settled build up to the grand final.
Parr was an 11th hour call up two years ago to come off the bench when Tyson Hodge didn't get through the Weissel Cup decider.
Now the 31-year-old believes the club is in a good position heading into their fourth straight grand final.
"It's been a good week and a positive week," he said.
"Training has gone well and it sounds like we'll have everyone back on deck which is good.
"We've got some pretty experienced troops returning so I think everyone has a pretty good feeling going in."
Tumut have plenty of weapons in their forward pack including Zac Masters and Jed Pearce, who were named as the two front rowers in the Group Nine Team of the Year.
However Parr is confident the Bulls pack has what it takes to handle anything the Blues throw their way.
"There's no secret that their strength is their forward pack but out of the three times we've played them this year I think they only got over the top of us the one time at Harris Park," he said. "The other two times I think we've more than held up and that's what we need to do.
"If we can match them then I think we've got them in the halves and the backs for creativity out wide to put the points on."
With forward depth on the bench Parr, who's offloading game can create plenty of opportunities, is looking to bring plenty of energy early to make the most of their rotations.
