SEVEN New Era Cup games in a row without a loss - it is the sort of streak that has CSU coach Billy Dickinson thinking the Mungoes can end a five-year premiership drought in 2019.
On Saturday afternoon at Diggings Oval, CSU ran in six tries to defeat the Portland Colts 32-10 and maintain a share of the competition lead with the Orange Barbarians.
That the win came during university holidays - a period when CSU teams typically struggle - highlights one of the reasons why Dickinson has a premiership title in mind.
"It's insane," he said of the Mungoes' current streak. "I think this year, things are feeling a bit special.
"It's hard in uni holidays - we went from having 20-24 boys to pick from to having 17 this week, but we did well. Blokes have driven like four and five hours to play today, so I can't complain about that as a coach."
Whether or not the Mungoes can go on to claim their first crown since 2014 and fourth since 1975 remains to be seen, but there was plenty to like about their latest performance.
Portland started the better of the two sides and Wayne Sellers crossed in the 17th minute, but that only served to spur on the Mungoes.
Three minutes later Callum Ferguson crossed and with Dickinson's conversion, the hosts held a 6-4 lead.
CSU continued to threaten with some sweeping back line moves stretching the Colts defence and though two potential tries went begging due to forward passes, the Mungoes went to the break with the momentum.
CSU's first set of the second period saw their lead grow as Phil Tuilau charged over on a nice angled run.
It took a brilliant one-on-one tackle from Portland halfback Sam Gascoigne to deny Mungoes centre Jamie Crawford soon after, but it was only a temporary respite.
Kris Kennedy scored two tries in the space of seven minutes, the first as he caught out the Portland marker-defence with a dummy, the second as he bust through the middle of the ruck following a nice back line move down the left flank.

That made it 22-4 with 15 minutes remaining and when winger Riley Holland crossed off the next side and Dickinson nailed the sideline conversion, it was clear the Mungoes were headed for victory.
Dickinson added a try to his haul for the day as he scored off the back of 30-metre run and while Portland fullback Shannon Rhodes showed some nice footwork to cross in the final minute, the day belonged to the Mungoes.
"We are constantly improving, which is good. We'll always have stuff to work on, but I think we're getting rid of most of the stuff that's been killing us," Dickinson said.
"Like today we were pretty good with the discipline and didn't drop the ball too much, we were just a bit frazzled in parts.
"We were a bit slow to start ... but after that first 15 minutes we were on fire, I think we completed every set for the last 20 minutes, which was amazing.
"We had a few injuries today, so we were playing with depleted troops, so it was good to still get the win."
