Wests Tigers winger Pat Richards spoke to the media on Thursday about his desire to finish the year with some strong performances, starting with Sunday's clash against the top-of-the-table Brisbane Broncos at Suncorp Stadium.
Despite sitting in 15th position heading into Sunday's match, the 33-year-old Richards was adamant that there was still plenty to be gained in the final eight games of the season.
"Everyone's ready to attack these last little group of games we've got," he said.
"It doesn't get an easier [for us], going up there to Brisbane, but I think we're looking forward to the challenge... and I'm looking forward to getting up there with the boys."
Having not beat the Broncos since 2010, Richards was under no illusions about how tough Sunday's clash against the home side will be, but said that the return of Luke Brooks, Tim Simona and Aaron Woods will give his side the best possible chance of an upset.
"They've [Brisbane] really been the bench-mark this season," said Richards.
"Their defence has been outstanding... but that's what we're aspiring to be like.
"We're ready to test ourselves against them.
"We'll be throwing everything at them we can.
We'll be going up there confident, and positive, which is how we've been treating things. We've been staying positive over this little period, and hopefully things will change for us.
"Having guys back [from injury] helps, they're quality players that we're getting back, so I'm looking forward to having them back on that left edge."
