Castleford Tigers coach Daryl Powell believes he has the squad in place to compete for silverware this season.
The Tigers, who have not won a major trophy since 1986, finished fifth in Super League last year.
"We want to be competing in finals and we've shown that we can do that," Powell told BBC Radio Leeds.
"I think we're capable of winning something. I'm pretty confident that we have got what we need and we have to believe that we can win something."
He added: "We'd like to think that we will be there or thereabouts. All my communications to the players have been that it is time to take the next step. We'll find out in a month or so if we are going to do that.
