Captain Adam Coleman is hoping extra laps of their training ground will help his Melbourne Rebels teammates tighten up their on-field discipline.
The Rebels are the only team in Super Rugby to have conceded more than 100 penalties and are desperate to stop the trend against the Crusaders at AAMI Park on Friday night.
After four successive losses, Coleman said that this week there had been a focus on training exactly as they meant to play.
"Our discipline has been very poor throughout the season so we're looking to really mitigate how many penalties we give away," the Wallabies lock said on Thursday.
"It's coming from training.
"We're ill-disciplined at training and not getting punished as much, so this week we've been a lot harder on our discipline and there's been a few laps around the post and I think it's going to transfer on to the field."
Coleman, who has finally overcome a niggling sternum injury, said his team wouldn't have to adjust their playing style too much after their two games in South Africa.
But after losing both those game they needed to execute better, particularly in the forwards, against the competition pace-setting Crusaders.
"The Crusaders have a very physical pack and they've shown throughout the years they love to go to their set piece," Coleman said.
"We've done some work at training to really turn our set piece around and we know what's coming so we know as forwards that we're really going to have to front up and really respond from our performance last week."
Halfback Will Genia missed the South African trip with a hamstring injury and Coleman felt the return of the Test star would help the team lift their standards.
"Willy G demands a lot from the pack and from others around him in the backline," he said.
"I think the team, being a new team, really needs that and the boys respect him for that."
