OVER the past two years Diggings Oval has been a fortress for CSU, but if the Mungoes wish to host the 2020 Mid West League grand finals on their home soil it will mean surviving on Tigers' turf.
This Saturday CSU will venture to the Oberon Sportsground to face the Oberon Tigers in the Mid West League Cup's major semi-final.
The victor of that clash will host both the cup decider and the Mid West league tag grand final and that's something CSU would love to do.
Last season the Mungoes and Mungals pulled off the premiership double at Diggings Oval to mark an undefeated run on their home turf. That record has extended into this season as well.
But winning at the Oberon is not something any visiting cup team has managed this season, with the Tigers finishing as the undefeated minor premiers.
CSU lost its round game there 26-8.
"They were unreal last time, they are a very good football side," Mungoes coach Rhys Power said.
"I felt like we were never really in it against Oberon the first time. Like we muscled up well in the middle at the end of the second and third quarters, but we let in three tries in the last five minutes of the fourth quarter.
"You can't do that against good football teams, you are just going to get run all over the top of.
"Dallas [Booth, coach] has done an unreal job with Oberon, you can't take anything away from what they've done. They've got everything right and they deserve to be where they are and they deserve to be hosting this semi to see who will host the grand final."
While Power certainly has respect for Oberon and what they've done so far in 2020, he also knows his side is capable of pulling off an upset win.
Last week the Mungoes handed Cargo a 22-12 defeat in the major preliminary semi-final. It was the first time the Heelers had lost on their home ground this year.
"I've got confidence in the boys, we've just got to come out and do everything right. If we have a few things fall our way I think we'll be right, we'll see what happens," Power said.
"We've got to play our 100 percent best game, best all-round game and have everything go our way, but if that happens we can shake it up."
While the Mungoes attempt to qualify for a fourth consecutive Mid West grand final, the Mungals are chasing a fifth league tag title in as many years.
"They're a bloody good football team that Mungals team," Power said.
The Mungals can book their spot in the grand final with a win over Cargo in Cargo on Saturday in their major semi-final.
The Mungals finished as the undefeated minor premiers in their division, with their efforts including an 18-14 win against Cargo a month ago.
However, the Heelers are a side in form as their 52-4 win over the Orange Barbarians last week indicates.
The Mungals' semi-final at Cargo starts at 1.30pm, while the Mungoes battle with Oberon kicks off at the Oberon Sportsground at 2.45pm.
