Two south-west products are causing plenty of buzz in the big smoke with one scoring a century and the other taking a five-wicket haul in Victorian Premier Cricket's top division.
Woodford export Tommy Jackson stormed to his fourth Premier century while Nirranda product Brody Couch was on a hat-trick as he claimed 5-30 from 10 overs on the weekend.
The Geelong players were pivotal to their side's six-wicket victory against Melbourne University.
Jackson told The Standard on Friday he wanted a big score and it came just two days later at University Oval.
The 18-year-old, who will play for Vic Country at the under 19 national championships, blasted 113 from 121 balls.
"I was pretty happy with how my innings went," he said.
"I had a different approach to the weekend.
"I tried to be a bit more patient and really make the most of the start I got."
Jackson, who hit 12 fours and one six, said he adjusted his batting approach after some reflection.
"I had got myself out a fair bit this year," he said.
"My approach was to hold myself back and play more sensible."
Jackson dealt with former Australian leg-spinner Fawad Ahmed for the first time.
"It was pretty special because you see those guys on TV and then you're up against them," he said.
"I enjoyed the challenge of facing him."
Meanwhile, paceman Couch bowled Ahmed out for a golden duck on Saturday.
The 19-year-old took his first five-wicket haul since a preliminary win against Fitzroy Doncaster last season.
"I felt like I executed really well and all our bowlers did a really good job," he said.
"It was a great team effort.
"I felt like I had a really good field set, it sort of comes down to execution then really."
The good mates, who are both landscapers in Geelong, trained with the Victorian Futures League Academy in winter and were mentored by high-performance and specialist coaches.
"I worked on my bowling action a fair bit during pre-season in Melbourne," Couch said.
Both south-west exports said they were enjoying their stint with Geelong Cricket Club.
"It's been awesome," Jackson said.
"All the Geelong boys have been really good and I'm learning mostly from the experience of the others."
"There are a lot of experienced players and a lot to learn from the senior players in the side," he said.
"It's definitely a good experience for Tommy and I.
"It helps that I've got Tommy here as well."
Couch and Jackson have played cricket together for many years.
Couch said they would have first played together for a Warrnambool and District Cricket Association under 15s representative side.
Geelong stand-in skipper Hayden Butterworth heaped praise on the duo after the match against Melbourne University.
"I've been saying it for the last 12 months that he's something special," Butterworth told the Geelong Advertiser about Jackson.
"He's probably played in 15 games and this is his fourth hundred.
"We hope he's not playing with us for too much longer just with the ability he's got with the bat.
"There's not many people in the comp that have done that (four centuries as a 18-year-old) ever, so he's definitely banging the door down and we wish him all the best."
Butterworth was just as pleased to see Couch get a result for his hard work.
"He's been building all season to do something like this and even against Dandenong he bowled really well," he told the Geelong Advertiser.
"Again, he's another exciting one to watch because his pace is really strong and if he gets a chance at a higher level, he wouldn't be out of place at all.
"These two young guys from Warrnambool are putting on a show for us."
