Camden coach Brendan Schoupp insists the Rams are under no pressure to deliver for their loyal followers in tomorrow's grand final with title holders Avondale at WIN Stadium.
The Rams have won just two premierships - 1987 and 1995 - and were starved of finals football for 15 years before returning this season.
Schoupp has been the driving force behind the club's transformation, but he is quick to deflect praise, claiming the players deserve all the credit.
A few hundred Camden fans will make the trip to Wollongong tomorrow, particularly with second grade also playing for a premiership.
The Rams have lapped up the extra attention around the Camden community over the past fortnight and don't expect to be burdened by the expectations of fans.
"Our preparation has been really good and there hasn't really been any pressure on the guys," Schoupp said.
"Saturday is a fantastic opportunity to express themselves as players. The excitement is that we've come a long way as a club and the grand final is about finishing that off as a club. And it's about the Camden first grade team achieving something as a group and creating their own history."
After beating the reigning premiers 20-18 in the major semi-final and twice during the regular season, the Rams won't be wondering if they are capable of prevailing tomorrow.
But the Wombats led for all but 75 minutes of the major semi and are coming off a 29-17 defeat of University in last week's preliminary final.
"Avondale played very well. I knew they'd come back from the major semi, and the best two teams in the comp - one and two - are in the grand final," Schoupp said.
"I've got a lot of respect for Avondale and lot of respect for James [Patrick] as a coach, and I know he'll be preparing them really well."
When it comes down to a grand final, it's hard to believe one team will "want it" more than the other.
But there were signs in the major semi that the Rams were a little hungrier when the game was tight down the stretch.
It remains to be seen which team is more desperate tomorrow.
"Avondale are a very good football team and they'll want this just as much as we will," Schoupp said.
"We have to take some of the emotion out of it because it's still a game of football we have to play and win. But the emotion of not being there for a long time, that will make our guys go to the well and they'll play for the whole 80, and that's what you have to do in a grand final."
While Camden are represented in first and second grade tomorrow, Avondale will be contesting all three grades.
