Aidan Sezer knows the hype is about to go into overdrive.
But it will all count for nothing unless the third-placed Canberra Raiders continue to back it up.
The Raiders claimed their biggest scalp of the season with the finals series on the horizon in a stirring come-from-behind victory over the Melbourne Storm this past weekend.
Now the equation for Canberra is simple: enjoy the high, dust themselves off, and go again.
Because awaiting them for the third week in a row is another top four clash - this one coming in the form of the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles at a heaving Canberra Stadium on Sunday.
"Nothing changes for us. Hype is hype, potential is potential. It doesn't mean anything until you fulfil that," Sezer said.
"We've got the belief and we need to keep turning up like we do each week, and that goes a long way towards a good rugby league performance.

"The style in which we won is a testament to the character within the group. We know what we're capable of.
"We know as a defensive unit, if we get that right and hold our defence as the priority, we know our attack will look after itself. Even though we've got it already, it brings belief.
"To have a win like that in Melbourne after being 18 points down, not many teams do it. We'll take plenty of confidence out of it and move forward.
"They got the jump on us but we had belief. Once we scored that first try, we had belief we could come back and get them.
"That belief never tapered, even with 10 to go and we were behind, we knew we had the momentum and we knew we could come over the top of them.
"To get the two points at this time of the year is very critical for us."
Claiming the scalp of the Storm, who are all but assured of claiming the J. J. Giltinan Shield with three rounds still to play, goes a long way towards silencing Canberra's doubters.
It may even leave rugby league great Phil Gould to reconsider his stance on what the Green Machine might be capable of this season.
Gould said the Raiders had made a living off "beating up on out of form teams" following their loss to the Sydney Roosters last week.
It extended Canberra's losing record against top five teams to five matches on the trot - but their latest outing may have reduced those doubts to a whisper.
Raiders five-eighth Jack Wighton has heard it all before, and he even admits, until now, those people had a point.
But he hopes things have changed now as the Raiders march towards their first finals appearance in three years.
"Everyone keeps doubting, but we've got to keep trying to prove them wrong. That's what it's all about," Wighton said.
"It is a little bit frustrating hearing that, but it was very true also. What he said wasn't out of perspective or out of order, it was the truth.
"To get the win [against Melbourne] and get that ball rolling of beating top four sides, top five sides, that's what it's all about."
For another chance they will only have to wait until Sunday, when they lock horns with a side they have beaten once in their past four encounters.
"They're a class team, they've got a good run against us lately," Wighton said.
"We'll have to put our best foot forward, get our recovery in and go again."
