Worcester Warriors 25 Cornish Pirates 20
It's a wonder more teams don't do it. Just as David Sole led Scotland on their Slow Walk to glory at Murrayfield in 1990, so too Adam Black headed Worcester's methodical march on to the Sixways pitch and towards their own date with destiny.
Just as it was that day in Edinburgh, when eight million Scots claim to have witnessed first hand their Dark Blue tide wash away English pretension, Warriors dismissed any notion they could be denied in front of a frenzied full house.
They are back in the back in the Premiership and deserve to be. After 31 league matches, of which 30 were won, they have built an inalienable right to for a second try of their hand with the big boys.
Twelve months have passed since their last attempt ended in anxiety and acrimony and only time will tell whether Richard Hill's evolution has had enough of the revolution about it to make a better fist this time.
However, those are issues for another day, sport is all about the glory and after a season that at times has been a stroll, at others a trudge, the champions deserve their moment.
After all the 14-points by which they won this two-leg final should not be allowed to obscure the fact Chris Stirling's Cornish Pirates are a decent side.
The trouble is Worcester are better. Some will say so they should be, with their parachute payment and the Duckworth millions, but they still had to go out and take care of business.
They have done that with admirable focus and for all the times when they struggled - such as at home to Doncaster and Rotherham earlier in the campaign - they have timed their run admirably.
Which is why there was barely a hint of drama when Pirates' Rob Cook made the darpting Warrior Greg Rawlinson pay for straying in front of Jonny Arr's box kick just 29 seconds into the game.
That cut the home team's aggregate lead to just six points but if they have proved anything this season it is that they are excellent front-runners.
Andy Goode settled any nerves with the equalising penalty five minutes later and it was plainish sailing from there.
A 12th minute break by Chris Fortey set up a 5m scrum, which after two resets, trundled towards the Pirates line.
Indeed the home scrum's supremacy was so vast and their rate of progress so rapid Kai Horstmann lost control of the ball at the back.
No matter Jonny Arr scooped up and found Marcel Garvey cutting back from the blindside wing for his 22nd try of a superb campaign.
Goode converted from wide right and then sunk a drop goal after Miles Benjamin had made inroads from first receiver.
Cook's second penalty made it 13-6 at the break and the job was done.
Especially following a second Worcester try two minutes after the restart when Goode fizzed a beautiful flat pass that Alex Grove had no option but to take to the line.
The centre created the channel and released the pass that sent Benjamin, the division's leading scorer, scorching home from 50m.
Three minutes later Adam Black scooped up a loose ball in his own half and slung a pass to Benjamin.
The Saxons wing pinned the last defender and off-loaded for Goode, the highest scoring hobbit-lookalike in Championship history, to take his try tally to a baker's dozen.
With their job done Warriors took their foot off the gas and allowed the Cornishmen to have the final quarter.
That produced a breakaway by Drew Locke and a penalty try from a 5m scrum when Neil Best was in the sin-bin.
But in truth the slow march to promotion had already begun.
