Despite not knowing the full extent of their opponents' line-up, the Narwan Eels are confident about their chances heading into Saturday's A-grade semi-final.
The Eels will face the Moree Boars at Newling Oval in the do-or-die battle.
The Boars haven't brought full-strength sides over in their last two encounters but Narwan player-coach John Roberts isn't worried about who they will face.
"Whoever comes they are going to be coming into a storm," he said.
"We are ready for it."
Narwan experience a purple patch mid-season where they toppled the previously undefeated Glen Innes side, which is still the Magpies' only loss to date, followed by a convincing win over reigning premiers the Moree Boomerangs.
The late stages of the season saw them slip away in their form with players unavailable but Roberts is hoping to name a similar side to the one who upset the top two teams.
"We have got two players that have minor injuries that we are going to give until Saturday before I name a side," he said.
"That is the side that we are running with. We talked about it at training all week, how we need to get back into that grind that we had in that middle sections.
"We kind of went away with it and fell apart in the third part of the season."
While there is plenty of flair and excitement among the Narwan squad, Roberts will be looking towards the gritty middle men, Jack Wythes, Steve Widders junior and Gary Quinlan to get his team moving forward.
"They always turn up for me and they are the boys that going to lead for us," he said.
"Then we have got Gary, the hard horse of the team, he is pretty much our leader, everyone looks up to him so we are expecting a big one from him as well.
"If the boys are rolling forward then it just makes our backs look pretty."
It will be a huge day for the Eels with three grades contesting minor semi-final clashes on their turf.
"It is going to be a huge one for the club especially," Roberts said.
"We haven't had a home final since being back in, we had one at Armidale [Rugby League Park] but this is our home ground. Our committee has been flat out organising it. It is going to be a big day for our club."
To cap off a big weekend for the club, the Narwan reserve grade side will contest the major semi-final against current champions, the Boomerangs in Glen Innes on Sunday.
"All our A-graders will are going to head up and support them," Roberts said.
"Shauny [Collins] says he has got a side to take up there so hopefully the boys turn up."
League tag begins at 11.30am
