Wigan Warriors prop Lee Mossop believes he is now fully over the problems with his shoulder that have troubled him.
Mossop, who has had three reconstructions on his right shoulder, was in good form in Friday's 30-24 win over Hull FC - his performance rated his season's best by coach Shaun Wane.
"After the game it's the best I've felt in as long as I can remember, like 10 years," he told BBC Radio Manchester.
"Everything is perfect so it is just that mental side of it really."
The 26-year-old added: "It has been tough coming back from this one to be fair.
"I think when you're younger and you have a reconstruction, you're a bit blasé with it and straight away you have that confidence - you fly out and do what you have been doing.
"This year it has just taken a little bit longer than I would have liked, in my head more than anything."
The England international returned to the Warriors this year after one injury-hit season at NRL side Parramatta Eels, where he made only three appearances.
He is eager to build on Friday's display and finish 2015 on a high.
"I've been a bit disappointed this year by my inconsistency," he added. "I've been good one week and not so good the next.
"Hopefully I can build on that as there are hopefully three or four big games left this year."
