Not one to focus on the results of a season bygone, Sharks forward Chris Heighington holds no fears about this week's trip to Townsville to tackle reigning NRL Premiers, the Cowboys.

Heighington told the media on Monday that he and the side hold no scars from last year's finals exit at the hands of the eventual champions, with the Sharks focus fixed firmly on that of the upcoming challenge this Saturday.

"They gave us a bit of a touch up in that Semi Final, where the crowd was pretty wild, so we know what to expect," Heighington said.

"They went on and won the competition. It's a big test for us, but we're ready for the challenge."

Watch the full interview with Heighington, now playing on Sharks TV.
