Ospreys winger Jeff Hassler knows he won't have the element of surprise on his side in his second season with the Welsh side.
The Canadian international was a welcome surprise at the Liberty Stadium last campaign, managing to establish himself as first choice by the end of the season.
The 22-year-old was so impressive in fact, that he earned a spot in the Pro12 team of the season, despite the Welsh side missing out on the play-offs.
However as he prepares for a second campaign with the team, he knows it will be more difficult this time around now that he will be a marked man.
"I'm not a new guy in the league anymore," Hassler told the South Wales Evening Post.
"Other teams will watch film of me, so I guess it's just about bringing my game to the next level, bringing a couple of things I didn't do last year in and building up.
"Most people would see me as more of a straight runner, but I sometimes throw a sidestep in during training. Hopefully I can get that into my game next year.
"I definitely didn't expect it to go quite as well as it did. I knew coming in, with the injuries the Ospreys had around the wing, that I'd have a good opportunity, but I didn't expect to get thrown into the mix as early as I did.
"I knew if I did get the opportunity I could have a good season, but at the end I was pleased with things on a personal level.
"I didn't even know there was a team of the year until the lads came in and congratulated me, and even then it took a while for me to realise what a good season I'd had individually because I was always thinking about the team."
