At a club looking to win their first decider since 1986, players who know what Illawarra Premier League grand final success feels like are hard to find.
Thankfully for Bulli, centre-back Stuart Lowrie can bring that experience to the table.
The defender moved to Balls Paddock from Picton last campaign, ready to impart an abundance of finals wisdom on Ben Smith's young squad.
"I had some success at Picton, probably five or six years ago, so I could also bring that experience with me, which I think Ben [Smith] looked upon favourably," Lowrie said.
"I have captained Picton to a couple of grand final successes in the past, so it is good to come to a club with high ambitions."
Lowrie was able to help Bulli to a grand final appearance in 2012, but the Northern Suburbs club were unable to match it with a star-studded Dapto Dandaloo side.
In 2013 they find themselves in an almost identical position to last campaign, but are determined to change one crucial detail.
"Last year Dandaloo were a very experienced side, which would probably add to the intimidation and to the experience for the younger guys," Lowrie said.
"It is a big occasion, there is the media hype and a lot of people get behind it.
"We sort of did get overawed by the occasion, but I believe you have got to lose one to win one.
"With that experience now behind us I think we should have a successful day on Sunday."
The defender added that the opportunity to play on the big stage earlier in the final series has helped prepare his teammates for the big occasion.
"The experience of playing on WIN Stadium, it is a fantastic surface, but it is obviously one that takes a bit of adapting and getting used to.
"Eight, maybe nine, of the starting 11 would be 22 or under so that experience and also having played on WIN Stadium and not getting overawed by that occasion will help as well.
"So we will take a lot out of that going into the game and now with confidence that we kept a clean sheet as well."
Lowrie will be aiming to keep a similar presence at the back in the return fixture at WIN, in what could be his last game for Bulli.
After two memorable years at Balls Paddock, the defender is contemplating his football future.
"It is a long off-season. I am more or less saying that it will more than likely be my last season with Bulli."
