Macleay Valley Mustangs coach Russell Lardner is hoping his side will continue to stick to the plan when they return to action after a week off, when they battle the Port Macquarie Sharks this Saturday.
"I want us to go out there and do our normal thing - play hard, fast and with plenty of energy," Lardner said.
"It's going to be a good match and we just need to concentrate on our job."
The Sharks, who are the defending Group 3 champions, have admitted they are in a rebuilding season but still hold onto fifth spot.
The side has picked up three wins from eight games and suffered a 42-24 loss when the two sides met earlier this season.
The Mustangs head into the game close to full strength, with only Owen Blair and Nate Welsh unavailable for selection.
Lardner said Welsh is recovering well from the injury he sustained in the victory over the Bulls but is still a couple of weeks away from a return.
Isaiah Barker has recently returned from a hamstring injury and Lardner believe Isaiah and brother Dre are forming a formidable partnership.
"The two brothers bring a lot to the team. Dre is the starting prop and Isaiah has come off the bench for us in the last two games since returning from injury," Lardner said.
"They are both at the caliber of a starting prop but we have quality players and it makes it a luxury to have Isaiah on the bench."
The first grade match kicks off at Port Regional Stadium at 3pm.
