The Marlins will travel down South this weekend to Laurieton, searching for their third victory against the Stingrays.
Last Saturday they defeated Long Flat Dragons in a hard fought game after the away side started strong.
"Long Flat got off to a 12-point lead but the boys kept composure and brought it back to 12-all at the half," coach Alfie Drew said.
Penalties and dropped ball proved costly to the Marlins with the Dragons hitting a 20-12 lead in the 51st minute.
The scoreline then read 26-16 with two tries each before Malcolm Webster steered his side home.
"A brilliant performance from Malcolm Webster got us back into the game, his smarts on the field is probably second to none and he led us really well," Drew explained.
"The forwards just went straight and direct which then allowed Malcolm to do what Malcolm does."
The Marlins ran out 34-26 victors with tries to Graham Roberts, Webster, Peter Bula, Jimahl Toby and Corey Giacopelli.
Jarrad Reeves conversions also proved crucial.
Reeves is a new recruit for the club, debuting in round two and taking the Marlins to another level.
"As far as I know he's come from Coffs Harbour and he's been a great asset," Drew said.
"He's really safe at the back, his communication is brilliant, you can hear him talking to the boys which has helped keep our defence a lot tighter from when we played against Comboyne.
"He lives in Stuarts Point, travels down with two or three other boys from there."
With the Stingrays lurking this weekend Drew is determined to display a more polished performance.
"I want to focus on discipline, making sure we complete our sets," he said.
"It's only round three but it's still hurting us.. we haven't hit our stride yet, we're still far from our best and that's all about discipline."
