Nene Macdonald says he has regular roommate Josh Hoffman has been a big contributing factor for his improved attitude and form.
The big 21-year-old is averaging a healthy 127 running metres per game and is one of the best NRL players in the air, with three of his five tries this season coming from bombs.
He faces the in-form Tuimoala Lolohea on the wing against an NZ Warriors side that has hit form and have returned to their traditional free-flowing style.
"It will be a good challenge for me marking him, we have been working on our defence on the left side which has shown in the past few weeks but it's a big challenge, especially with his footwork," he said of the duel.
"Hoffy has been a massive help. He's much older, although he doesn't act it somethimes, he has been looking after me and helping me out with my off-field stuff.
"I've been working on my diet and things off the field that you don't see in the game and at training."
