Bradford Bulls hooker Heath L'Estrange is happy to distance himself from the "whingeing Aussies" complaining about the packed Easter Super League programme.
As clubs prepare to embark on the busiest time of the season with the games coming thick and fast over the holiday period, the former Sydney Roosters and Manly player says he cannot wait for tonight's West Yorkshire derby against Leeds Rhinos.
"I absolutely love the Easter period," he said. "You've got three or four games in 10 days and it's all rapid fire.
"You get it over and done with and you spend a bit more time at home with the wife."
The packed schedule will test clubs with smaller squads but L'Estrange believes the Bulls have youngsters ready and able waiting in the wings if called upon.
"It is a bit challenging but we're not worried," said Bradford's co-captain.
"We've got boys like Adam O'Brien, Sam Wood and Curtis Naughton right on the fringes ready to take any of our spots at any time.
"They're only a season away from becoming Super League players and it's good having those kids keeping you on your toes."
L'Estrange, 27, now in his fourth season in Super League, is hoping his side can reproduce their heroics from 12 months ago when they pulled off a stunning 12-4 win over the champions to lift the gloom at Odsal.
Twelve months on from the height of their financial troubles, things are looking up for the Bulls on and off the field.
Placed on a solid financial footing by new owner Omar Khan, the club are in talks with the Rugby Football League over a new Super League licence, while the team are currently in the top eight after making an impressive start to the season under head coach Francis Cummins.
"We're happy with where we're at at the moment," L'Estrange said.
"We had a good talk at the start of the season with all boys and coaches and we're working slowly towards that goal.
"Maybe we are a tiny bit ahead of where we expected but we're not going to get ahead of ourselves. We've got a tough period coming up."
