Last week's upset loss for the Dubbo CYMS side during their away game in Wellington is still sending some shock waves throughout the competition.

The former ladder-leaders had already bested Wellington once in the first round before a surprise appearance by former NSW great Timana Tahu, and an invigorated Cowboys side, sent the Fishies home with their first defeat of the season.

The result cost the CYMS their position at the top of the ladder, but centre Jyie Chapman isn't too concerned about the impact of the result on the CYMS season going forward.

"I think we'll be back on top and focused to go again this weekend, it's only one loss at the end of the day, it's a game of footy," Chapman said.

This weekend, CYMS will get the opportunity to rebound at home, as they draw the Narromine Jets.

Earlier in the season, the Jets fell to CYMS in a 24 - 36 defeat in round two, where both teams were still finding their footing.

Thanks to the realities of the game, Chapman doesn't think much will have changed in the Fishies approach to the Jets come game day.

"It's the same approach as when we played them last time, you never know what to expect from who turns up on the day, you have to be ready for anything," Chapman said.

However, he is certain that the Jets will be looking to make a big statement in the same manner as the CYMS, with the competition beginning to open up to teams that struggled so far.

"Last week they got beat by Macquarie, so they'll be looking to turn it around and win some points, so I expect them to come out strong."

Jets Captain Dylan Hill is expecting the same from the CYMS, certain that the Fishies won't be looking to make any mistakes after a bruising loss.

"I believe they're going to come out flying, I don't think they'll take us as lightly this time, I think they'll be looking to come out strong and ensure they don't have back to back losses," Hill said.

"It'll be a big task for us due to so many injuries, we're starting to get a bit light on troops at the moment, but we're be looking to score a big win and hopefully we can use this opportunity to do that."

"At the moment the team's a bit hard to say because we're still waiting on a few injuries, but as a club we're in a positive mindset."

"We've seen a lot of improvement in the club this year compared to the last few years, there is a lot more self belief this year."

The Dubbo CYMS will square off with the Naromine Jets at 3.15pm on Sunday June 30 at Apex Oval.
