Albury Thunder will be out to finish its gut-wrenching season on a high at home to premiership contenders, Gundagai, on Sunday.
The Border outfit will miss finals for the third time in four years after a series of single-figure losses.
The Thunder sits in seventh spot, three wins out of the top four.
Quite remarkably though, the club has the third best points differential.
Even second-placed Wagga Brothers have scored only 38 more points then they’ve conceded, while Albury boasts 52.
The Thunder has racked up five wins and is coming off its two biggest thumpings.
It smashed Temora 40-10 and then went a try better in demolishing an undermanned Wagga Kangaroos.
However, perennial finalists Gundagai will be a massive test.
Barnstorming back-rower Liam Wiscombe will be out to continue his wrecking-ball form, while rugged five-eighth Robbie Byatt has combined power and precision.
