Two proud fathers will watch their sons line up together in their first Group Nine grand final on Sunday but for Gundagai stalwarts David Tout and Martin Hay it's the larger Tigers family they are most proud of.
Gundagai will line up in three grand finals after their Sullivan Cup side joined the two senior grades.
All five grades qualified for finals and after eight seasons as president and secretary it's something the pair are proud of no matter the results at Equex Centre.
"As far as the committee goes we've probably already reached our goal with every team making the semi finals," Tout said. "Whatever happens on Sunday is just going to be a bonus.
"For us it is all about culture and we are a small town who punch above our weight so to get every team in the semis was just massive."
However there is no denying watching sons Royce Tout and Derek Hay run out looking to win the first grade premiership will be a special moment as well.
"It's great as they grew up together and to see them run out for the Tigers on Sunday will be great for both families," Martin Hay said.
"We're very proud of them, very proud of them, but from my, Touty's and the whole committee's perspective we're also proud of the whole club as it is virtually impossible to get five sides through to the semi finals from a small town like this."
Derek Hay returned home to play after suffering a horror ankle last season.
He staved off the threat of suspension to line up at halfback against Tumut on Sunday.
The 23-year-old can't wait to line up for the Tigers.
"It's good to be back as I haven't played here since 2015," Hay said.
"This year we've got a lot of locals and a lot of my best mates are in the team.
"Royce, Dane O'Hehir, PJ (James Smart) and Jake Elphick have all been mates for years but I don't think we've ever all been on a footy field so going out there on Sunday will be pretty special."
Royce Tout came back last year, when the Tigers were knocked out of the running by Sunday's rivals.
The 23-year-old lawyer travels back from Sydney each week to line up for his hometown team.
Success on Sunday would make the kilometres in the car each weekend and juggling busy work commitments all the worthwhile.
"Playing with all your best mates is why I do it," Tout said.
"I've been coming home trying to win a comp - it is the ultimate goal - so to make a grand final does make it all worthwhile in the end.
"It's positive it is a shorter season as well.
"It makes for less travel."
Gundagai have only lost once this season, against Tumut at Anzac Park three weeks ago, to finish the regular season in second place.
It was a two-point loss but they reversed the result the following week at Twickenham when they Tigers handed the Blues a two-point loss, their first of the season, to earn a week off before the decider.
It sets up for a big clash between the fierce rivals.
Sydney-based Royce Tout is looking to help deliver Gundagai a premiership.
"We've been the two best teams this year so it is only fitting that they are in the grand final," Martin Hay said.
