More size up front and a spicy derby clash with Forbes.
That's what the Parkes Spacemen are looking forward to in 2021 as preparations for the return of Group 11 rugby league ramps up.
The Spacemen have been busy in recent months, with Tony Dwyer stepping up to take on the president's role while coaches have been locked in and a number of signings for the club's first grade side have also been confirmed.
The most eye-catching of the new signings is Bailey Hartwig, the Western Rams representative who has made the switch from southern rivals Forbes.
"Bailey approached us and he's a quality footballer who can play plenty of positions," Dwyer said.
"It was a bit of a funny one because we had Forbes on the phone saying we were poaching their players.
"But he was talking to Jordan (Pope) during Western's (Presidents Cup) stuff saying he'd be keen to come across, so that's where it originated from.
"It spices up that long weekend match though."
While Hartwig is a hugely versatile player, he's likely to find a home in the second-row at Parkes.
He'll be part of a new-look forward pack with Benny Cokanasiga, a Group 11 representative who most recently played for Nyngan, also joining the club while Dwyer said he was hopeful of securing a couple more forwards in the coming weeks.
Dennis Spathis, a Condobolin junior and Western Rams representative who previously won a Group 11 under 18s title with Forbes, has also linked with the Spacemen.
"We've been light on in big forward and that's where we wanted to strengthen," he said.
"We identified a couple of areas we wanted to strengthen. We needed a centre or two and forwards.
"Our halves have been good and we've had no problem scoring but we'd get steamrolled a bit."
Depth in the forward pack is particularly key after the Spacies were found wanting in recent years when short of players due to injury.
"We were lacking a bit of punch off the bench when a couple were injured," Dwyer said.
"We're working on a couple more forwards and if they work out then it will be a bonus."
The Spacemen are set to meet with Jake Dooley, a marquee signing earlier this year, shortly in the hope of tying him down again for 2021 while there is uncertainty if Charles Tago, brother of current Parkes player Brandon and another signing for the COVID-ruined 2020 season, will return.
One signing from this year who will be back is dynamic Welsh hooker Connor Farrer, who had previously starred with Trundle in the Woodbridge Cup.
One of the most pleasing things for the club's new president is the strong core group of players who have been in the top grade together for a number of years now will all return.
The likes of Chad Porter, Jordan Pope, Jay Slavin, Sam Dwyer, and Tago will all be back again and be vital to the side's hopes of success.
"A lot of the locals are right. They're not going anywhere," Dwyer said.
"That core group of locals has stuck solid."
Parkes is expected to start pre-season in February.
