Wests Tigers Coach Michael Maguire says while last week's demolition over the Brisbane Broncos was the team's most complete performance of the season, the side are still unsatisfied with parts of their game heading in to Thursday's clash against the Eels.
Looking to record back-to-back wins for just the second time this season when they face off against Parramatta tomorrow night, Maguire said it was crucial that the positive signs from last week carried over in a consistent effort this weekend.
“We’ve been playing teams that we’ve been evenly flowing but I think the weekend was our most complete performance so far,” said Maguire.
“It’s about doing that with the teams up the top now and backing that performance up."
“We’ve spoken about that and I’ve been straightforward with the team.
"That’s the attitude you need in every game to be a consistent top eight team which is what we’re all striving for.
“That’s the attitude we need to take into every game. Sometimes you get a good momentum and it flows, but there are times where it goes against you and it’s how you get through that which is what I’m looking for.
“We know when we’re at our best we’re a good team," Maguire enthused.
"I do know one thing and that's that our team is capable of beating anyone in the competition. I really believe that. We need to show that now by our actions and it’s in our hands to be able to do that.”
Having named a near identical side for Thursday's clash aside a late swap in the forwards, Maguire said the players were hungry to replicate their effort against the Broncos against a top-four side in the Eels.
“I don’t think the boys are satisfied with where we’re at," Maguire said.
"A lot of that talk is coming from the players directly which is what I’m trying to achieve. They control what we’re doing.
“The fact that we’ve done it once... they’re hungry to do it again and again."
