A noticeable change in positivity has helped Bond University to back-to-back wins and propelled the club off the bottom of the Hospital Challenge Cup ladder.
Bull Sharks coach Grant Anderson believes the club can still secure an all-important top four berth after a form resurgence.
"We are certainly playing with more confidence," Anderson said.
"The players are bringing a real positivity to training and games."
The morale boosting 41-7 win over Norths couldn't have come at a better time, with the club still carrying key injuries across the squad.
Following a week off between games front man Tai Ford is holding it together heading in round 10 but vice captain Harry Nucifora pulled up with a sore ankle after the big win.
"The week off was the best thing, I need it badly," Ford said.
"I was carrying a few niggles that were affecting my game, but the energy is very positive and the boys now want to be there.
"We will keep the same structures now that we are playing footy at a level this competitive."
The Bull Sharks are determined not to let injury halt their winning streak despite Salesi Manu finishing against Norths with a bad cork and Will Slipper with an AC injury.
There are no plans to make further changes to the winning formula with the players now buying into how the coach has designed his game plan.
"We will keep playing positive rugby which is how we want to play," Anderson said.
"The players are really enjoying the style of rugby and it shows."
Bond University Rugby hope to continue their winning ways next week when they will take on Wests Bulldogs Rugby at Toowong on Saturday.
