Saturday's semi-final holds just a bit of extra meaning for one of Tathra's finest midfielders.
Troy O'Loghlin will contest his 150th senior SCAFL match for the Tathra club with team-mates to celebrate him as one of the club's most consistent and stoic on-ballers with a career spanning almost 20 years.
O'Loghlin said he was an avid footballer growing up in Melbourne and joining the Sea Eagles was a natural progression.
"I had played plenty of AFL in Melbourne before I moved to NSW and I've followed the game my whole life," he said.
"So I started with Tathra about the same time I started high school in Bega."
Since joining the club around 2001, O'Loghlin is among the select few players who share in four premiership flags in-a-row.
And he's still one of the club's best, featuring heavily in the recent best and fairest count.
"It was good to be up there, but i think Louis [Coulton] will have his name on that trophy for many years to come, hopefully his and my best footy is in the coming weeks," O'Loghlin said.
"He is one of the single most consistent and driven players I've ever known in my career," says club veteran Luke Taylor.
"His will to be in the contest is second to none".
"He will go down in history as one of the best players Tathra has ever had."
O'Loghlin said premiership flags are what clubs strive for and four-in-a-row, winning best and fairest for two of those seasons - was certainly a highlight.
But the one that sticks out was a premiership coming out of the junior ranks.
"An under 17s flag with all my school mates when we the underdogs, that was big," he beams, adding "being able to win a few premierships with my brothers and cousins along the way was a always a pretty good time.
"Those flags are the best memories for sure."
O'Loghlin said the Sea Eagles had a long and distinguished list of quality players and that had been a catalyst for the club's ongoing success.
Many of those players have come and gone, but now O'Loghlin finds himself among the Sea Eagles elite alongside people like Taylor and Brad McBain, who are passing on their winning ways and passion to those coming up the senior ranks.
"The likes of Bruza and Brad are massive for us, not only on the field, but are just as valuable off the field with what footy knowledge they bring - they can bring the best out of us and have done so for me over all these years."
O'Loghlin said it was a great milestone to reach, but his focus is keenly on taking it to the Diggers this weekend.
"If we all play our role it will go a long way to winning the game, I'm backing our 20 guys to get the job done."
The Sea Eagles will face off with the Merimbula Diggers at Berrambool from 2.45pm on Saturday.
