Sharks Skipper Dan Braid is full of confidence going into the final game against Exeter Chiefs this weekend despite some of the disappointing away performances this season.
Braid has paid testament to how the team have performed at home this season with the wins against Saracens and Northampton at the AJ Bell.
"We have tipped over some pretty big sides at home this season, and also the win against Quins at the Stoop was massive for our season.
"Our away form had dropped towards the end of the season and we have lacked a little bit of consistency on our travels."
After Mark Cueto's and the departing players farewell against Newcastle Falcons, Braid believes that the team are fully focused on the job in hand down in Exeter.
"The mood is good in the camp after a good win and a really good send off for the boys, we know what we are going down for.
"It is very important for us to get another win so we can match what we did last season. We want to put pressure on Wasps then who knows what will happen. They are going down to face a tough London Irish side that like to attack".
However the 34 year old is wary about the occasion possibly getting to the players in such a big game.
"If we don't turn up down there, with the way that Exeter are playing and what they are playing for, it could be a tough game so we know how important it is to front up.
"We want to try and harness the emotion of the lads last game and the possibility of European Rugby and use it as adrenaline to help us push on. We need to be focussed and be clear on what are individual roles are and what we need to do".
As captain of the squad, the players look to Braid for leadership, something that he shows week in, week out on the field.
"I try not to say much before the game because we have been preparing for this game all week in the build up. Before the game I try to focus on my role and what I will be doing in the game because as a leader you have to have your game on the field and lead by example".
The All Black flanker has struggled this season with injury in his second year as captain. It's been tough for Braid fitness wise this season, the skipper could only notch up 21 appearances in all competitions after a knee operation in the off-season.
"With the knee operation I missed out on a lot of pre season training, then spraining my ankle in the first game meant I was out for several weeks."
Braid was rewarded for his good form in February after putting pen to paper on a one-year extension.
Looking forward to next season, Braid spoke about how the Kings of the North tournament could benefit the Sharks squad.
"We should all be fit with the longer break due to the World Cup and it will be great to face two quality sides leading into the Premiership".
"Next season hopefully we will be in Europe, but our main focus is the Premiership. We are aiming for the top six, and then hopefully we can go on and push for the top four".
