Wests Tigers forward Curtis Sironen says his side still have plenty to play for heading into the final round of the competition this Saturday against the Dragons.
With the possibility of the wooden spoon still looming for Wests Tigers, Sironen says the team are determined to build on last week's thrashing of the New Zealand Warriors and ensure they finish the season on a positive note — away from the bottom of the ladder.
"It's obviously our plan to repeat what we did last week," Sironen said on Tuesday.
"We've got a couple of training sessions left and it's sort of winding down a bit now, but that relaxed attitude seemed to work well last week, so hopefully we can do that again.
"A win for us would make sure that we don't get the spoon, so we've got a lot to play for.
"I'm sure the Dragons will have something to say about that, though. I think they'll be disappointed with their game last week... so we're looking forward to it."
With Saturday's game bringing about a chance to put back-to-back wins together for just the third time this season, Sironen said that the team's sole focus this week was on continuing their improvement and developing more consistency in their performances.
"I do think we have improved this season, no doubt about it," he emphasised.
"As players we're definitely improving; we'll just have a couple of weeks where it won't gel and we'll drop our heads and that kind of thing. We put on results like that [Sunday's win] against the big sides, but then we'll lose three or four in a row and have some pretty average games and our fans are wondering what's going on and things like that.
"We know that that gets pretty hard to follow sometimes [but] if we can build off last week and play that sort of footy again, I don't see why we can't continue to improve."
