The Hurricanes have named an unchanged team for their second round Super Rugby match against the Lions this Saturday, despite last week's emphatic loss to the Stormers.
Hurricanes coach Mark Hammett opted to stay with the same matchday 22 - starting XV and bench unchanged - simply because he does not have many options.
"Some things went well and others clearly didn't so we've been working really hard to make sure we can get into our game," Hurricanes tighthead prop Ben May told the Dominion Post.
"We are excited about this week because we want to show everyone what we can do, show everyone back home that we have done a lot of work.
"There is definitely still a bit of frustration because I think we played well at times, we showed a lot of heart, there were some great patches in that game, but a lot of frustrations."
May was one of three Hurricanes props sinbinned by South African referee Marius Jonker at Newlands.
And though Hammett's long talk with referees boss Lyndon Bray exonerated several of the scrum offences, May said the onus was on the players to adjust better to varying calls.
"I was definitely frustrated at the time. Looking back, I need to not do that and just move on, be more disciplined - that's where I'll be heading."
There was a lot of confidence in the camp despite coming off a loss, he said.
"They [the Lions] aren't really a normal South African template. They have a couple of New Zealand coaches there and they like to attack, but we are looking to attack them. We think there are opportunities there.
"Hopefully we can play our game for more than 10 minutes this week."
After this match the team begins their return trip home stopping via Perth to take on the Western Force next Friday, March 9.
