The Uralla Tigers men's team sit one spot outside the Group 19 second division top four and hope they can catapult themselves into finals contention in the final two rounds.
They travel to Tenterfield this Saturday after a poor first-half cost them against Bundarra at home on Sunday.
Trailing 30-6 at half-time, the Tigers clawed their way back into the game but went down narrowly 30-28.
"Shit first-half two weeks in-a-row, just didn't start well," Tigers president Josh Clark said.
"Through sheer effort we got back into the game.
"Penalties in the first-half.
"Having said that we did score 22 points in the second-half, unanswered."
The coming opponents are sitting at the bottom of the table with one win this season.
"We will still have to show up and we have to perform," Clark said.
The Uralla league tag team continued their unbeaten run on Sunday, beating the Bears 16-nil.
Clark said there is still work to do.
"I think they still have a lot of improvement, they can play a lot better than they have been which is a scary thing for the other teams," he said.
Clark also congratulated Amy Barraclough for making the Greater Northern league tag side and thanked everyone for coming along to their trivia night.
