Sunshine Coast Falcons are back this week at Sunshine Coast Stadium for Round 25 of Intrust Super Cup, in what could be one of their defining matches leading into semi-finals.
With a strong start in the first half of the season, the team has recently had several game blows that has seen them slip to fourth on the Intrust Super Cup ladder.
Coach Craig Ingebrigtsen remains positive welcoming a bye last weekend after playing six games on the road.
“We are in a real heavy train phase at the moment internally. We knew these results would happen so we were prepared for it but are not doubting our ability to get the job done.”
"I just want (them) to be hungry again. We probably lost that hunger from the travelling and we had a few things go against us in our travels so it (the break) gives us a chance to freshen up and get a bit hungrier and come back ready to win."
Key players are expected to return to the club giving the Falcons a much needed boost to find their groove in the game again.
“It’s important we all stay positive and have belief in our systems and processes. I think we have a realistic chance if we get all our players back,” Ingebrigtsen said.
“This next match is very important for both sides as we may meet each other the following week in the Semi Finals. It’s about momentum”
