One of the Riverina's proudest rugby league towns will return to grand final action on Sunday.
Tumbarumba will meet Corowa in the Murray Cup decider at Albury's Greenfield Park.

The Greens have been a stalwart of the sport, producing 1967-68 Kangaroo tourist Kevin Goldspink.
But the club was forced out of Riverina's strongest competition, Group Nine, at the start of 2018 as they battled falling player numbers.
Tumbarumba joined the Murray Cup this year, which takes in Wangaratta and Benalla, as well as a number of Border outfits, including Corowa.
"It was a real big factor to include Tumbarumba in the competition to keep that tradition going, they're such a proud club," Murray Cup publicity officer Bill Bell said.
The Greens-Corowa clash is a new-look grand final after Wodonga Storm toppled Murray River Warriors last year.
It was the Storm's second successive title.
"Corowa has a lot of experience in Kris Sharp, the Murphy brothers, they've played in grand finals before so I wouldn't see them go in as underdogs, I reckon it will be a pretty event contest," Bell said.
Tumbarumba will also play in the ladies league tag decider against the CSU Mud Dogs, from 1pm.
Given the Border's highest profile rugby league club, Albury Thunder, plays away on Saturday, officials will be hoping fans can get their footy fix in the Murray Cup.
