After a year that nobody could've predicted back in January, CSU Mitchell vice president Daniel Adamson is keen to finally get his side's New Holland Cup campaign underway next month.
The draw for the competition was released last Friday, with CSU to host Dubbo Rhinos in the opening round of the competition on July 25.
And it won't be long before CSU take on Narromine Gorillas in the grand final rematch on August 15, a match the whole club is looking forward to.
"Obviously they're the benchmark and they've been like that for the past three years," Adamson said.
"The grand final was one of the most amazing days of everyone's life, with the way we won.
"Narromine were very uncharacteristic, the way they lost and I'm sure they're ready to have a crack at us again and we're very excited to have a crack at them too."
With Bathurst Bulldogs withdrawing their third grade team from the competition, the New Holland Cup will only feature five teams in 2020.
Each club will have two byes, while playing every other team twice, once home and once away.
The top two teams will contest a grand final.
Adamson said he's just keen to get back playing with his mates.
"We're kind of sick of not doing anything on the weekend," he said.
"We're pretty excited start playing footy. It is hard when you start your pre-season training and it gets all called off for two to three months and then you're back into it.
"We're just keen to get out there and play some footy, have a run and hang out with our friends again."
The competing teams for the 2020 New Holland Cup season will be CSU, Narromine, Parkes, Mudgee and Dubbo Rhinos.
