Canberra Raiders stars hope the chance to own their mistakes in a brutal video session will reignite their NRL campaign after spending a week off "filthy" on themselves.
They will get their first chance to make amends in a clash with St George Illawarra in Wollongong on Sunday.
Jordan Rapana says the entire playing group is still dirty after they dropped "well below our standard" to squander a 16-point lead against Parramatta in their last outing.
Joe Tapine thinks Canberra simply didn't have their heads switched on when they started "knocking off at the end of the first half".
Bailey Simonsson believes the "want and desire we've had all year" had evaporated - and now they "want to forget that one as fast as possible".
But they wouldn't be allowed to forget it until they sat down and watched it all again in a review session at Raiders headquarters.
Canberra veteran Sia Soliola says reliving the Darwin horror show is just the tonic to spark the Raiders into gear for the run to the finals as they look to shore up a top four spot.

"If we weren't ready to come in and train, talk about things and move on, then it's not going to happen for us," Soliola said.
"It just doesn't happen, you've got to proactively talk about things, work on things, and just move on.
"Just that patch, not just the Parra game but the [Cronulla] Sharks game as well, where we put ourselves in good positions [and let them slip, although Canberra toppled the Sharks by two points].
"We address that a lot throughout this year about starting fast, there's just that period there between the 30-50 [minute] mark where it's just not working out for whatever reason.
"We understand it's not a really big issue, but it is an issue that if it wasn't addressed, it would hurt us.
"This is the home run now. There's a bit of a contrast between our start and our middle period but we're looking forward to really smashing out this back end of the year."
The first side in their way is a Dragons outfit sitting just one win outside the top eight, desperate to find some momentum to keep their finals hopes alive on the home stretch.
"It's a dangerous thing. Teams in those positions are very dangerous," Soliola said.
"We showed it last year when we were out of the eight and strung those wins together. That scenario creates a really tough opponent for us, so we're ready for that."
Canberra on the other hand, sit in fourth and could conceivably force their way into the top two over the coming weeks.
Rapana says nothing will stand in the Green Machine's way if they can piece together some consistency.
"We haven't just fluked wins, we're up the top for a reason," Rapana said.
"We take a lot of pride this year in our defence, that has been something that has let us down in the past.
"We're 100 per contenders to be in that grand final. I know it's a cliche, but you've got to take each game as it comes.
"We've got a big game this week, and I feel as though if we can defend as we have been and play the way we have been this year, nothing really can stop us.
"We've sat down, had a good meeting, individually taken ownership of where we stuffed up and hopefully we learn from it."
