Singleton Greyhound Frank-Paul Nu'uausala immediately switched his focus to next week's final home and away match against Scone just moments after guiding his side to an upset 40-0 victory over Aberdeen.
The Greyhounds suffered a 34-6 defeat when they last played host the top-of-the table Thoroughbreds.
Nu'uausala, who made 155 appearances for the Sydney Roosters in an illustrious career, hopes his side can showcase a top performance against the league powerhouse to finish the home and away season.
"When it's easy we start to love ourselves with the ball but sometimes our defence tends to give up too easily but that is something we need to work on as a team and as a whole," Nu'uausala said this afternoon.
"Last week I pulled the boys aside early against Scone and said this isn't good enough so I know that we play them again next week and it will be a good test.
"We were flogged by 60 points twice in the middle of the year so hopefully we can put some points on the board and show them what we can do."
The Greyhounds kept their opponents scoreless for the second time in three weeks this afternoon despite the absence of Thomas Johnson.
"Today was just a dead rubber that our group took some confidence out of," Nu'uausala continued.
"But next week will be the ultimate test if we can just play some good footy out of the middle."
