In 160 minutes - less time than it takes to watch a Marlon Brando film - Pertemps Bees' season has done a complete volte-face with every eye in the club now trained on the pack ahead, rather than the abyss below.
After consecutive wins against London Welsh and Sedgley Park - the first time they have achieved such a feat for over a year - try-scoring hero Tim Walsh maintains that he expects the club's relegation worries to be over.
With his late, late intervention last Saturday, the fly-half has done as much as anybody to ensure that Bees have moved out of the bottom two and to within a win of tenth plac.
With Park leading 6-5 and poised to inflict a most damaging defeat on their hosts, Walsh took Allan Gill's off-load and, under extreme pressure, stretched out an arm to touch down for Bees' most important try of the campaign. Ben Harvey converted and the men from Solihull were celebrating a 12-6 triumph.
The result gives Walsh and his team-mates real belief that they can avoid demotion from National One.
"In my opinion, I don't think we will be relegated," he said. "The players we have got here are too good to drop down. We have proved that in the last two weeks and, hopefully, we can silence the critics who have been bagging us.
"We feel loads more confident now. Anyone who's been in a rugby club before knows that if you win on Saturday and rock up at training on a Tuesday, it's a different place. Hopefully, we can keep that momentum and keep going."
With something resembling form, Bees can now look at the rest of their programme with optimism. Admittedly, they still have to play the full-timers of Penzance and Bedford, but the rest of their nine games will not strike fear into their hearts.
"The games we have got coming start to look a bit more inviting," said Walsh. "We have got a very nice last four matches and a lot of home games coming up, as well. It's all looking up for us now."
And the former Australia Sevens outside-half believes the manner of the win over Sedgley has done wonders to enhance the optimism now pervading the Bees.
"Having come away with that win showed we can win games at the death. In the last year, we have lost matches like that," he said.
"The way we won just gives us more confidence. Loads of tries would have been nice but we have proved we can play under pressure which is what you need to do, because we have some big games coming up which will come down to the wire.
"A defeat would have very seriously put us on the back foot. Losing to Sedgley Park at home would have been terrible, but it's two in a row now and that has to give us confidence for the rest of the season."
Bees have a week off now, due to the start of the Six Nations, but resume their survival campaign at local rivals Coventry on February 11.
