Both Cowra and Forbes are not in the race for Central West rugby union glory this year.
In reality, they have been finished for a while.
However, before they hang up the boots for the season following Saturday's game, they will put it all on the line one last time for 2012.
Going into the final round, it would be easy to put the cue in the rack and look forward to rebuilding for next year.
But it won't be the case - both sides will be prepared to bleed and determined to win.
It will be the inaugural battle for the Bill Rowlands Memorial Cup.
No more incentive for the clash is needed and both sides will want to secure the silverware as the first recipient.
For Eagles coach Colin Kilby there, perhaps, is no greater motivating factor.
"I started playing rugby for the club when I was 12 years old and he was there then and for me and most people he was the heart and sole of the place," he said.
"Everyone was always willing to put in that extra bit for Bill, especially if he was on the sideline, as he quite often was. He would be always in the sheds to have a talk to you before the game and I don't think that there would be any player over there that couldn't draw a bit of inspiration from him."
A Club stalwart, Bill Rowlands dedicated his life to the game he loved and found no greater thrill than seeing players succeed on the rugby paddock but also in life.
Current First Grade players Adam Meiklejohn and James Montgomery reflected briefly on the man they called "Old Colt".
"He instilled the culture into the club in what we do on the field and what we do off it," Meiklejohn said.
"We come together as mates, play as mates and enjoy ourselves as mates. Winning comes with it, as does losing - he brought a lot of that culture to Cowra and made the club what it is today.
"That was the best thing about Bill, he didn't care if you were in the under 13s or first grade and he didn't care about your ability. Because you played rugby that was enough for him to get to know you - he loved the game and the people involved in the game - not just in Cowra."
"At the end of the day that's what we play for, the memory of Bill Rowlands," Montgomery added.
"Every time we walk out on the home field we have that reminder above the door. He is a legend of the club - he has always been there and always will be.
"The rugby memories I have in Cowra, Bill is in most of them."
From the days where Cowra and Forbes went head-to-head in the South West competition and grand finals were decided, there has been a long association between the two clubs and is seen as the local derby in the Central West competition.
There is a healthy rivalry.
"The boys are very keen to put in a big performance in the Cup's first outing and it looks as though we'll have all players available for the contest," Kilby said.
"They need to remember what they're out there trying to achieve in this game especially and when you're down, you've got to keep getting up."
And, without a chance to sing the song after a win so far this year, nothing would bring a smile to the Old Colt's face more than a belting rendition in the home team's change room and celebratory ale from the Cup.
Junior games will begin action at the Hartley Street rugby union ground followed by three senior grades.
