Wagga RSL suffered their second loss of the season but captain Sam Perry is hoping his side can still take plenty of confidence from it.
After falling 28 runs short of their rain-affected target against Wagga City last week, the Bulldogs now face undefeated South Wagga at Robertson Oval on Saturday.
Perry was pleased with his team's batting performance and hopes they can continue to improve.
"It's another huge challenge but playing the two best teams in two weeks is pretty good and will show where we are at and what we need to improve on," Perry said.
"If we can get a win this week it would be sensational for not only our ladder position but confidence moving forward.
"With the performance we put in last week there is no reason why we can't do the same this week, if not better."
Despite conceding plenty of runs against the premiers, Perry is confident their bowling attack is up to the task.
"Our bowling performance wasn't atrocious, even if chasing 300 looks like it was but they got off to a really, really good start and the outfield was good, the pitch was really good and while 300 was probably above par I don't think it was too far above par," he said.
Their bowling attack will also be boosted with Ben Willis back available, which sees Will Scott move to second grade.
