There were grand final-like celebrations after a breakthrough win over Waratahs to start the season, but Wagga City coach James Curgenven is confident the side isn't heading into the clash with Tumut overconfident.
The Bulls will provide another tough test at Jarrah Oval on Saturday and Curgenven expects the Boiled Lollies to be very wary of what the round one winners will throw at them.
"Obviously it was a great result but you don't win the season by winning one game," Curgenven said.
"There are 15 more rounds to go and there are plenty of good sides out there in Aggies and Tumut as well.
"We have to make sure we keep consistent and try not to get ahead ourselves."
There was plenty of excitement around their rare win over their closest rivals, their first in six years, and Curgenven is looking to use that.
He believes people are already more confident with his different approach after the big result and following a winless season the Englishman feels a weight has already been lifted from the club.
Tumut scored a 44-5 win over Albury to star the season and one of Curgenven's main objectives is trying to contain the Tumut forward pack.
"We know they have a big forward pack and like playing a nice, tight game," he said.
"We have to make sure we manage that better than what he did against Tahs and then play the game in the style of play we want to play."
Wagga City weren't quite at full strength to take on the premiers, but Curgenven has resisted making too many changes.
Tom Jennings comes in on the wing for the unavailable Hamish Wrafter but Wade Palframann retains his role at five-eighth with Jayden Stanton to play off the bench.
