For the past four years, Lake Illawarra have brushed aside their rivals.
In that time, they have claimed all 11 trophies on offer, the side one win away from completing a fourth-straight South Coast Cricket clean sweep of the Twenty20, one-day and two-day titles.
Despite their dominance, the Lakers still feel they have a point to prove.
The team has been frustrated by a lack of recognition of last year's premiership, some rivals questioning its validity after the finals were abandoned due to COVID-19 restrictions.
With the rain clearing late in the week, Lake Illawarra are determined to take to Howard Fowles Oval for this weekend's South Coast grand final against The Rail.
The goal, to complete the sweep in the club's 75th year.
"We were on top for the majority of last season but some people have put an asterisk next to that trophy because we didn't play semis or a final," Lakers captain Mark Ulcigrai said.
"The guys are chomping at the bit to get out there. We won on default last year, we'd win on default this year if we don't get on because of the rain. We want to put everybody at ease and show why we deserve this trophy."
Lake Illawarra enter this weekend's grand final against The Rail full of confidence, having comfortably beaten the Razorbacks in the final round of the regular season a fortnight ago.
On that occasion it was William Gamble who starred for the Lakers, the youngster scoring his maiden first-grade century.
Ulcigrai points to that match as a sign of his squad's depth, the skipper confident he has 11 players who can step up in the big moments.
"We showed throughout the season that it's not just one person who got the runs or wickets. We've got enough diversity and experience that anyone can win us the game.
"We just need to be patient, we didn't do anything unusual in the last game, we bowled very well. We have to take notes from what we did in that game and continue on not just for one day but over the whole weekend.
"Whether we set a total, big or small, I think we can defend anything, and I know our guys can chase anything. We want to win it legitimately and prove we are the best team."
The Rail captain Brett Gilly accepts his side was outplayed earlier this month, but he is confident the match will act as a learning curve.
While they may be underdogs in this weekend's decider, the wicketkeeper firmly believes his side can pull off the upset.
"The squad's excited for another opportunity to try win some silverware," Gilly said. "There's a good vibe around the group, we're raring to go for the weekend.
"You've always got to be confident that you're able to walk away with victory. They've had the wood on us this year but the last one is the game that counts. If we do our best, it will give ourselves every opportunity.
"We need to minimise the small errors, they are what let ourselves down against them. If we can fix the effort areas, it will give ourselves a better opportunity to be in the game come crunch time."
