Looking for a Job? www.mycareernelson.co.nz We needed that win Action man: Tom Marshall sets off for the Makos during Sunday's top-of-the-table clash with Hawkes Bay. Photo: PHOTOSPORT. Sunday's win against Hawkes Bay was something that we really needed. It wasn't pretty but it was a good, tough win and it just goes to show that we can win those gritty ones and we are a good side. So I guess that's the best thing about it, we'll take a lot of confidence from it. I think we realised the importance of the game and we were pretty embar- rassed and a little bit gutted about how we went about things the previous week. So I knew that the boys would front up and I guess we did. It wasn't perfect by any means but the attitude was definitely there and that was something that was lacking against North Harbour. It was great for Q [Quentin MacDon- ald] to celebrate his 50th game for Tas- man. We've had two players achieve their 50th this year and we managed to pull out a win for Joey [Joe Wheeler] as well. It's pretty special. It takes a wee while to get 50 games in the ITM Cup and for the Makos there's only a select few, so it's great. Alex Ainley's pretty close too, so it'd be great to get another one on the list. I'm feeling much better now after my recent bout of swine flu, pretty much 100 per cent. It knocked me round for a few days but I had a full week of training last week and got through the game, so I'm feeling sweet. Looking to tonight's game, Northland are a pretty good side actually, they've played some pretty good rugby and they're always hard to play up there -- and to beat. I guess the key for us is that if we don't front, then we will get beaten, which is probably a good lesson that we learned from the other week. So hopefully we can go up there with the right attitude and continue our win- ning ways. I think they'll be wanting to have a real crack at us. They know we have to go up there on to their home ground and they saw what Harbour did to us, so they'll probably take a lot of confidence out of that.
