THEY upset minor premiers Orange Hawks to reach the Group 10 premier league grand final and now the Mudgee Dragons are aiming to shock once more.
If they can do that and beat the Bathurst Panthers at Carrington Park on Sunday they will be crowned the 2019 premiers.
Having finished the regular season in third, the Dragons lost to Panthers in the first week of the finals series.
But they then downed Lithgow and beat Orange Hawks 14-0 in the preliminary final last weekend.
One of the Dragons' leading players, Jared Robinson says while getting to the final stage of the season is a credit to the side, they've got one more win until it's time to sing the song of champions.
"Obviously grand finals are the pinnacle of any sport, so to be down to the final two teams is a massive effort," Robinson said.
The job is not done yet though, we've got one more win to go.Mudgee Dragon, Jared Robinson
While the start of the year was less than ideal with occasions of narrow losses and 'silly mistakes', Robinson says they've well and truly kicked into gear right when it all matters.
"We have been a little bit up and down this year, but we've always had the squad be competitive on our day," he said.
Last time the Dragons danced with the Panthers was in the first round of the finals, where the Bathurst side came out on top serving up a 40-18 flogging.
Robinson admits Bathurst don't make many errors which will make for a tough match, but says the Dragons are well aware of what they're going to do to better their chances.
"Panthers are a great side, they don't make many mistakes and have good second phase play, so we need to be really good in the middle and take our chances when we get them," he said.
"They are very good at building pressure. They complete sets and don't give many penalties away.
"Key is building on the back of last weekend's performance in the big dance. If everyone plays their own part and does their job we will give ourselves every chance.
"We need to build pressure and allow ourselves to stay in the game."
Sunday's grand final will kick-off at 3pm.
