Wests Tigers winger David Nofoaluma says he's determined to improve his side's performances at Bankwest Stadium ahead of Thursday's showdown against the South Sydney Rabbitohs.

After a disappointing performance against the Canberra Raiders in the club's first home game at the venue, Nofoaluma says the side are desperate to produce a good effort at the state-of-the-art facility with three important home games coming up in the next three weeks against top eight sides in the Rabbitohs, Roosters and Eels.

The team will host their final training session in preparation for Thursday's game at the venue on Wednesday, with Nofoaluma confident that the session will greatly assist the side's ability to get the job done against South Sydney.

"We know we haven't been successful there," Nofoaluma conceded, "and we know that we really need to turn it around in way that we play.

"I think having our Captain's Run session there will really benefit us in the game.

"It's our first Captain's Run session at Bankwest and it's a good thing for us to go and do that session there and go through our drills and plays at the stadium.

"We haven't done that in the past so it's a good chance to turn it around."


Coming off an enjoyable week in camp with the Samoan national side, Nofoaluma said the Pacific Test victory provided him with further confidence after a number of strong performances for the first-grade side in recent weeks. 

"I really enjoyed my time in camp with a great bunch of boys," he said.

"The game itself was really special too being able to represent my heritage.

"I really wanted to make sure I took what I bring every week here to that camp, and it's working well for me here with Esan and Benji on that side of the field.

"Now it's just about the Rabbitohs," Nofoaluma added.

"We came up against them a few weeks ago and they had a decent win.

"We've got to be prepared as it's a really important game for us."
