Cornish Sharks head coach Brian Smallworth believes his side need to "get physical" against Bristol Apache on Saturday.
The Sharks are looking to do the double over their west country rivals, following their 20-7 victory earlier this month.
Smallworth told BBC Radio Cornwall: "Bristol are very much a passing team and we have to be prepared for it.
"We need to try put lots of pressure on their quarterback Ash Richie."
The Newquay-based team are currently third in Division 2 West of the British American Football Community League, having won three of their opening five matches.
