They revived their victory chant, while Glen Buttriss dusted off his boots.
The Belconnen United Sharks' finals hopes have been rekindled by the return of their star hooker.
For what was expected to only be a few weeks out, Buttriss returned from a 12-week break after suffering a meniscus injury in the pre-season.
He played against the Queanbeyan Blues in round one, but was then on the sidelines until their round 13 clash against Yass.
They beat the Magpies 38-0 and have won two of the three games Buttriss has been back on the park.
"It's good to be back, the body is slowly starting to get used to playing footy again," he said.
"We've had a few wins over the last couple of weeks, which was great to be a part of and always makes things enjoyable."
Buttriss said it was a frustrating time for him, going into surgery with the expectation to only miss a few weeks on the field, to be told on the other end that he would need to take a three-month break.
"The meniscus ended up getting fully repaired," Buttriss said.
"Originally I was only going to trim the meniscus and I was only going to be out for a short time
"It was a little frustrating, but it all made sense and would be beneficial for the long run."
The winning feeling has eluded the club for a few years now, after not securing a win in 2018 and only one in 2017.
The start of this season was not looking much better, after losing the first four matches of their campaign.
They've had some impressive wins in 2019 and are an outside chance of playing finals - but need to win all three of their remaining games and hope the Queanbeyan Kangaroos lose all three of theirs.
Not to mention having to also leapfrog the West Belconnen Warriors and Woden Valley Rams on the Canberra Raiders Cup ladder.
"At the start of the season, we didn't win too many games and you could see the boys start to lose a bit of confidence and belief in themselves," Buttriss said.
"We managed to string together five wins during the season, and you could see the boys starting to buzz with energy."
The injury may have kept Buttriss off the playing field, but he still managed to celebrate a turn around season with the Sharks.
He attended every training session and game this campaign and witnessed significant team development over the season.
"There has been a really good buzz around the club, not only are the players starting to show a lot more confidence, but also the committee and the staff," Buttriss said.
After a promising 22-18 win against the Rams last weekend, the Sharks will bring their confidence back to the field as they take on rivals West Belconnen on Saturday.
Both the Warriors and the Rams need to win every game to keep their finals hopes alive, with the Rams' premiership defence on shaky ground.
"It will be a tough game this weekend, the Warriors had a good win last week as well, so they will be looking to back that up again with another strong performance," Buttriss said
"The Warriors also have their sights set on a late run for the finals, so it'll be a tough clash with both teams fighting for that top four spot."
This weekend the players will wear Men of League Foundation socks and with donations collected at all the games to support the cause.
