Rochester is a sports mad town and everyone there has a massive dose of finals fever.
But while townspeople are talking about how their beloved Tigers are going to win Sunday's Goulburn Valley League grand final at Deakin Reserve, Shepparton against Shepparton United the players are letting their actions speak for them.
Coach, Nigel van der Veer has been working his charges solidly in preparation for The Big One.
Centre half forward David Eefting will be a key to the Tigers' premiership hopes as will 1988 GVL Rookie of the Year Simon McCarty who will play beside Eefting on a flank.
Brendan Flanagan will have the job of picking up the resting United rovers.
