The Western Women's Rugby League grand finals at Orange last weekend were, first and foremost, a chance for teams to win some silverware.
But as an added bonus, the opportunity to turn a few heads and get your name up in lights was there too, given NSWRL women's pathways manager Kylie Hilder was there in attendance.
The talent on offer definitely caught the eye of Hilder, who said she was thrilled with the level of rugby league on display at Pride Park.
"Because in my job I see a lot of girls playing rugby league, and to see these girls here today ... this is outstanding," she grinned.
"I've been heavily involved with Western when this competition got up and running.
"I was at the grand finals last year and I've seen the development of these girls ... this is what I like to see, we want to start identifying girls in country NSW."
Hilder said with the NRLW's likely expansion in the coming seasons, ensuring the talent being identified to help fill those extra playing rosters was ready to go was part of her role with NSWRL.
"And we're developing pathways so those girls don't have to move out of areas they live in," she added.
"It's about giving them an opportunity to come into a country side, a NSW side play for a NRL club and go on to play for Jillaroos.
"It's not until out come out to days like this and see these girls, there's so much talent out here," the NSW Blues representative added.
While players in the Wiradjuri Goannas, who were beaten in Sunday's open's decider, have plenty of talent within their ranks it was a youngster from the Orange Vipers who impressed Hilder the most.
Vipers under 18s star Lilly Baker showed little-to-no preservation for herself on Sunday, throwing herself into her work in the middle of the field and leading her side to a dominant decider win.
"She's someone I can see in years to come on those pathways and she'll be playing for an NRL club, for sure," Hilder said.
The claim is a huge one given this is Baker's first season in the tackle format and she only played seven matches for the Vipers.
