Blackburn at Blackburn was our task for this week.
Pre-game I felt the group prepared in the right way and although was a little quieter than normal the
group appeared to have a good resolve.
Our first half was a good display of the footy we have been practising. We looked to change
direction from defence and moved the football with control. Our work at the contest and the coal
face was the best it had been for the year, and we were right in the contest and I could see the belief
back in the group’s eyes.
At half time, we went in down 3 goals to 1, and although Blackburn had several scoring shorts in the
form of points, we were right in the contest.
After half time however I think we ran out of puff. The boys kept on trying, but with the intensity
from a very strong opponent, we were unable to maintain the same intensity.
The first half showed a number of good signs, and other than some minor skill errors demonstrated
we can be competitive if we keep to the structure and our style, we will have quick and significant
improvement.
Critical is training and getting solid numbers on the track.
Lets have a good week this week and get a lot of touch and be ready to roll again Doncaster next
week.
