The Greater Northern Raiders will lose the veteran presence of all-rounder Evan Gulbis for the remainder of the season as he returns to club cricket in Victoria.
Despite the Raiders going winless so far this season, the 34-year-old said there was plenty for the team to be proud of.
"Without getting any wins on the board, I think it's been really positive," he said.
"I think in nearly every game we've had good periods where we've been in control such as the last game.
"Talent-wise we've got plenty of guys with plenty of talent ... we're putting in the effort it's purely just getting out-played at some key moments."
Gulbis' bowling prowess will be missed by the team. In his two one-day appearances, Gulbis bowled an impressive 4-47.
In the Raiders' three two-day matches, the former Tiger would go 7-198, allowing an average of about 28 runs per batter.

Gulbis said overall the team's bowling was a bright spot thus far.
"It's clearly our strength at the moment; just being ruthless with our length and lines, it's been really good," he said.
"We've got some match-winning batters too, we just haven't been able to get the high output out of them yet, but that will come."
Gulbis didn't focus so much on what the Raiders could do to keep him in form for the season, more so how he could help the young side learn and develop.
"It's not about me. It's about what I can give to the group and help these young guys," he said.
"Help fast-track them a few games, whether that be just with a bit of relief from having an ex-first-class cricketer out there with them, or with on-field coaching, direction and strategy work.
"Hopefully that fast-tracks them so they get a little better a little quicker."
Gulbis will re-join fellow former Raider Brayden Stepien at the Carlton Cricket Club. He said Stepien also thoroughly enjoyed his time in the Apple Isle.
"It was a good opportunity for him to put his name forward to not just get ready for Carlton ... but to do so in another environment with BBL and state selectors obviously looking at his numbers," Gulbis said.
