When you've got your back to the wall, you have little alternative but to come out swinging.
The ACT Brumbies will look to do just that in their bid to prove Super Rugby's dreaded South Africa to Argentina road trip is not mission impossible.
The Brumbies were "on the road for a hell of a long time" before touching down in Buenos Aires, where they will face the Argentina Jaguares at Jose Almafitani Stadium on Sunday (AEST).
It is there the Brumbies will look to continue their Super Rugby revival as they hunt for three consecutive wins for the first time this season.
Brumbies forward Murray Douglas says the side is riding a wave of momentum after grinding their way to a rousing win last week.
The 29-year-old Scot intends to take that same relentless attitude into a clash with the Jaguares.
"We had confidence in the group and we had confidence in the team we put out. We knew if we put the performance together then we would get the result," Douglas said.
"We go into Argentina with the exact same approach, we concentrate on ourselves and we put that effort on effort. If guys put everything out there, leaving everything on the field, then that is going to put us in a good place to get another win next week.
"To come up to Cape Town and play the Stormers, we knew it was never easy. We'll take a lot of confidence off the back of a huge defensive effort. We approached this game really well.
"We prepared for it really well, so we will be using the same sort of tactics heading into Argentina against the Jaguares. We go into the game knowing we can put in another good performance."
Douglas may find himself playing a bigger role this week for a Brumbies outfit missing a host of experience.
David Pocock (calf), Lachlan McCaffrey (knee) and Josh Mann-Rea (knee) have all returned to Canberra to deal with injury problems, with the latter expected to be a season-ender.
