Dana Ratu has extra incentive to bring up his first win with Southcity on Saturday.
Not only is he looking to get the Bulls on the board in 2020 but it would keep former club Kangaroos winless after the first three rounds of the Group Nine season.
Ratu made the switch between the two Wagga clubs early in the off-season and could never imagine what was to come.
After a pre-season hit out with his new club, the season was plunged into doubt before finally being given the all clear three months after it was originally set to begin.
While Ratu may be lining up against plenty of former teammates there's been no barbs sent from either of the two clubs in to lead up for the clash at Equex Centre on Saturday.
"I'm just keeping my head down," Ratu said.
"Keeping real quiet and not thinking about the game too much."
After having the bye to start the season, Southcity couldn't sustain their comeback against Brothers last week to fall 38-30.
Ratu believes there was plenty of rustiness in the side and expects a better showing up against Kangaroos.
"We could have done better but it was just being rusty as we hadn't had a trial really," he said.
"The last time we had a run together was at West Wyalong (in February) then corona hit and it killed us as we couldn't get on the field, couldn't do any proper training and with the gyms shutting down no one could do their own personal training apart from hitting the roads.
"That lost a bit of interest from a few players but I think we went alright.
"We just need to tidy it all up and we've been over it at training."
Ratu spent two seasons with Kangaroos after bringing his young family out from New Zealand.
Despite the COVID interruption he's enjoyed being part of a new club.
Especially after Nathan Rose took over the coaching role.
"It's been pretty good and I've enjoyed working with Nae (Rose) and Doc (Kyle McCarthy)," Ratu said.
"The direction they have and their knowledge of the game has been good to help me expand my knowledge of the little things I've forgotten as I've gotten older."
Ratu is focusing on being more part of the team.
"They help me remember I don't need to do everything and just need to bust for the bloke next to me rather than trying to overplay my hand," he said.
The 30-year-old is hoping that puts him in good stead against Kangaroos.
"For me it is just another team, I did use to play for them, but I try not to let that affect my game or anything like that," Ratu said.
Rose was pleased with patches on Southcity's play against Brothers last week.
However he's looking to control the ball better this time around believing their error rate was costly as they tried to complete their comeback.
"We were good in patches and probably just errors caught up with us in the end," Rose said.
"It came back to hurt us in the end of the game but look to try to fix that this weekend."
After trailing 28-6 leading into half-time before closing the gap to four points midway through the second half, Rose hopes the team can be on the front foot with a game under their belts.
"If we cut the errors out from the weekend it means we give ourselves a good opportunity to play some footy rather than playing catch up footy," he said.
