1989 was a lamentable season for witch started in worst on record in the short history of the club, while their efforts in 1990 produced a mixed reaction from the players, officials and club administrators. They had a real chance to slip up into a more successful year in 1991.

At the beginning of the 1990 season the Eagles focused on each game with a long-range vision of making the finals. After the lows of 1989, despite the flourishing finish, a possible finals appearance was treated as a long shot by many critics.

As the season progressed, though the intensity built and the Eagles emerged as definite final prospects. There appeared to be a feeling that a victory would justify the whole season. No other state had won a finals match.

The book provides information about the Eagles and how they grow up until their first finals appearance.
