Greater Northern Raiders coach Tim Coyle has challenged his players to keep performing in grade cricket.
With the men's team on a bye in the Cricket Tasmania Premier League this weekend, players return to their clubs for some Cricket North and North-West action.
With a seven-wicket win over University at Riverside followed by a 73-run loss at Kingborough in one-day encounters, the Raiders have an extra week to prepare for their first two-day match of the campaign, against Clarence at Windsor Park.
"We've got a week off then start with the red ball against Clarence," Coyle said.
"So the focus will be to get back to club cricket. We want players to take every chance in club games and enjoy some time out in the middle with the bat and work on a few things.
"Those opportunities are absolute gold so it's a good chance to get back and have an impact at grade level."

Coyle said Sam O'Mahony's two top-order scalps were among the highlights of the Twin Ovals loss while Charlie Eastoe's patient 25 shone out in the reply.
In Saturday's fixtures, New Town host South Hobart Sandy Bay, Lindisfarne face University and Kingborough welcome Glenorchy to the Twin Ovals. On Sunday, Lindisfarne take on South Hobart Sandy Bay and Clarence face University.
