After the Southern Inland Rugby Union competition had a break for the City v Country representative game, the Griffith Blacks will head to Wagga to face the tricky prospect of taking on Waratahs.
Griffith Blacks coach Craig Morriss is under no illusion about the difficulty his side faces this weekend but is still upbeat about their chances.
"It is going to be a tough game that is for sure," he said.
"Waratahs and Wagga Ag have been the benchmarks in the competition this season, and everyone needs to get to their level."
One of the problem areas for the Blacks has been their discipline, and Morriss said they used the bye week to work on this area.
"The effort from the boys has been there we have just been letting ourselves down," he said.
"We have been working on our structures to hopefully try and rectify this. We have had Aled Francis who coaches the Brumbies Academy in the area lending a hand recently, and that has been great. We just need to adapt this work into our gameplan."
While it has been a tough start to the season Morriss still isn't giving up hope on making a push for the finals.
"If we can turn the corner this week and get the win it would be a great lifter for the entire Griffith Blacks community," he said.
