Albury are confident the latest border changes will not have the same impact on the club as they look ahead to a big clash with Tumut on Saturday.
The Steamers postponed their clash with Wagga City earlier this season after the Victorian lockdown.
However new changes to the border crossings imposed this week don't have the same effect
With Tumut part of the border bubble, Steamers president Mick Raynes can't see any change for the team this week.
"This time the bubble was created by the Victorian government and their border bubble is slightly different to the NSW bubble," Raynes said.
"It includes Tumut and Wagga so our Victorian people can travel to those areas unencumbered."
Griffith and Leeton, who only have women's and third grade outfits, are the only clubs outside the border bubble.
Without further government changes Raynes is hopeful the impact can be managed.
"We only look ahead to the next week," he said.
"Last year the club sat down and said we would deal with it one week at a time.
"We turn up to training on Tuesday and say this is where we're at for the following week.
"We're doing the same now and will talk to the players and take the next week as it comes.
"The problem for us is we have to keep an eye out for changes to the border bubble from Victoria and changes to the reasons people can cross the border.
"That happened a few times last year by NSW and it could quite well happen again here.
"The information can come a bit haphazard and can be hard to track down but we're still progressing as best as we can."
However with cases continuing to escalate in Sydney, he feels the whole competition will be lucky to get the season completed.
Albury are looking to hit back at Jarrah Oval on Saturday.
The Bulls are holding their ladies day and need a victory to keep their finals hopes alive.
With Albury slipping to a 32-21 loss to now third-placed Griffith at Murrayfield, the Bulls are eight points adrift of the top four.
Albury do have a game in hand, with their clash with unbeaten Wagga City in August now worth double points due to the earlier postponement.
Raynes is hoping to see a real change in attitude.
"Based on what happened on the weekend Griffith played like they were prepping for finals and we didn't," he said.
"If Tumut are playing like they are prepping for finals and we play like it's just a random Saturday afternoon in the middle of summer then we will get beaten again."
