Danny Levi admits he needs to be better.
In his 64 minutes against the Gold Coast last week he had four runs for 33 metres and made 36 tackles.
He also made an error which led to a try and conceded a penalty.
Having reflected on his performance, the nib Newcastle Knights No.9 is going back to basics and feels confident of returning to his best against Parramatta at home on Sunday.
“A bit of selection in my choice on the field,” Levi said.
“I’ve talked to Browny a bit and we’ve come up with a bit of a simpler game plan for myself. I think it’s going to work for me. It brings out a lot of my best attributes. I’m looking forward to it and can’t wait to bounce back.”
Confidence is a funny thing.
It can take just one good run or crisp pass to turn things around.
Acknowledging that heads went down after mistakes last weekend, reacting to mistakes is something the team has addressed.
Levi acknowledges it’s important to not dwell on mistakes during the game and instead focusing on their next job.
“We need to have a better attitude,” Levi said.
“When there’s an error. A lot of heads go down but we need to go, ‘you know what, onto the next job’. We made a few errors, including myself and that resulted in tries and the efforts after the errors weren’t good enough.
“It’s something we’re definitely working on but it will get there.”
