Now in their third consecutive season in Spain's second tier, this could be the time for Trocadero Marbella to start looking upwards.
The club's quest for promotion has got off to the perfect start with two victories from the first two games, the latter against CD Arquitectura Rugby at Bahia's Park this week.
The clash was a tactical battle, with the hosts aiming to avoid committing errors and take advantage of the Madrid side's lapses in concentration.
The game plan worked until just before the break when the visitors took the lead for the first time.
This, however, proved to be the last as Trocadero reemerged with much more attacking intent to lead 30-17.
Arquitectura fought back to make it 30-24, but the hosts held out.
