After just missing out on the final of the 2018-19 Western Zone Premier League, Bathurst have come back bigger and better this campaign and will look to claim the title on Sunday.
But standing in the way of a Bathurst triumph is a formidable Dubbo outfit that have been the dominant side in the Western Zone competition for a number of years now.
Dubbo are the defending champions, after beating Parkes by 21 runs in last February's decider, while the 2017-18 title was shared between Dubbo and Bathurs after the match ended in a dramatic tie.
This Saturday's final will be held at the Scots Campus, and Bathurst skipper Adam Ryan knows his side have a big test ahead.
"Yeah, it'll definitely be a tough game," he said.
"Whenever we play Dubbo, it's always a good contest.
"You know you're versing a good rep side. You can't even rest even when you get to the 10th. Every wicket is a struggle and that's what makes rep cricket good - it's a challenge all the way through.
"For us to go up to Dubbo earlier this season and beat them, that was great for us. So they'll be coming down full of energy and will be trying to take it away from us.
"Hopefully we deal with them. We've played some good cricket and if we can continue with what we've been doing, we should do pretty well."
Bathurst and Dubbo's last clash at Victoria Park in October resulted in Bathurst picking up a 51-run win away from home.
Imran Qureshi, Jaden Ekert and Henry Shoemark all hit totals in the 40s, which helped guide Bathurst to victory, with Dave Henderson taking three wickets too.
In regards to the squad picked for this Sunday's match, it's an almost identical line-up that played in Dubbo, the only difference is Ben Parsons replacing Clint Moxon.
"We're pretty lucky that the core squad has played most of the way through, which is pretty lucky," Ryan said.
"Everyone has wanted to play for Bathurst this year, which has put us on top. It's that culture of wanting to win for each other and everyone playing as a team, rather than as individuals.
"However, when I was looking to do the selections, it was a nightmare but at the same time a good nightmare to have.
"We've had some amazing players in Bathurst this season who have been producing some amazing results."
Bathurst finished the Western Zone regular season on top of the ladder, winning all four of their matches.
Dubbo claimed second spot, with the top two contesting a final.
Sunday's match will get underway from the Scots Campus at 10am.
