Sharks half Chad Townsend spoke with the media on Tuesday, saying the side isn't sitting back and reflecting on their 16-game unbeaten run. 

"It's such a close competition (The NRL) ... Staying 'up' for 2 weeks or 3 weeks (let alone 16) is an amazing achievement," Townsend said.

"We're proud ... but we're not going to let one game or one bad performance determine our ambitions or our goals."
