I don’t want this to sound like an excuse because I was actually going to post it even if we won.
To play 3 games in the space of 12 days in my opinion is a massive ask of any team, especially when they have to get from Canberra to Townsville and prepare for a Friday night game v Bulldogs.
I know that all teams have to do this a different stages of the season but most wont have to do it with that amount of travel involved. The team really looked gone early in that 2nd half, completely struggling for enthusiasm. When they already had injured players, a full weeks preparation would really have helped.
Meanwhile the Dragons played their 6th straight Friday game tonight. The NRL and Channel 9 really need to look at the fairness of the game selections on all teams.
