Josh Beaumont is highly motivated by the side's prospects of winning silverware against Leicester Tigers on Saturday.
With the Sharks sitting top of the Kings of the North table, they know they need just one point to secure the title: "I'm really excited by the chance of winning some silverware at the weekend.
"It will be the first trophy in nine years the club has won if we do the business, and hopefully it will be the start of more to come."
Looking at the game at Tigers, Beaumont knows the side will be in for a tough test: "It's the perfect game to go to Welford Road to set us up going into the season.
"It will be like a Premiership game for both teams. It will be really good preparation for us.
"Although last Friday wasn't one of our best performances, we are still three out of three in our pre-season games so we have that winning momentum which is key at this stage in the year and hopefully we can keep building it up."
