This is the mountain the new kids on the block are trying to conquer.
Melbourne Storm hooker Cameron Smith can almost lay claim to more NRL finals appearances than the 17 Canberra Raiders players he will meet on Saturday.
Smith has played 36 NRL finals games while Canberra's 17-man squad boast 46 collectively.
Raiders centre Joey Leilua is the club's most capped NRL finals player with nine appearances - a number matched or bettered by seven Storm stars heading into the qualifying final in Melbourne.
This is where Raiders coach Ricky Stuart hopes Canberra's raid on England will give his side the edge.
When Stuart and recruitment guru Peter Mulholland began to scour the Super League, they had one thing in mind: find winners.
Sia Soliola, Josh Hodgson, Elliott Whitehead, John Bateman and Ryan Sutton make up Canberra's Super League alumni and they bring a wealth of finals and premiership winning experience to the Green Machine.
MORE RAIDERS NEWS
The quintet have combined for 34 Super League finals games and 15 appearances in the finals stages of the Challenge Cup.
It brings Canberra's collective finals appearances to 95 - still dwarfed by the 151 racked up by Melbourne's 17 in the NRL - yet it gives the Raiders a calming influence they haven't otherwise had.
"[Premiership success] is one of those things you want to re-enact over and over," Sutton said given he and Bateman won a Super League title last year.
"We've proved doubters wrong before and we're looking forward to proving them wrong again. We said it from the start, we've got the squad here to do something.
"I'm really looking forward to it, coming off the back of a pretty successful year at Wigan. It's good I've come to a great club over here and get into the finals.
"It's a different concept to what I'm used to and there's a lot of hype over here ... that's probably the biggest difference between the two, the hype."
Much of Canberra's finals experience came in 2016 when the Raiders were knocked out of title contention in Melbourne.
Their return to the finals has been a long time coming and Bateman says they are determined to make the most of their chance.
"The season just gone doesn't mean anything - last week doesn't mean anything at the end of the day," Bateman said.
"We're in the now and we have to move forward. We're really excited, now we want to keep coming and take our game to another level.
"We've got a quality team here, we'll just go about our business and do what we do. We know what we're capable of and we're looking forward to taking it into finals.
"You can't really take stuff for granted like playing together and training together, you've got not many more left, so we're really looking forward to it."
