Bulldogs good job

Post by galea#11 » Mon 14 Mar, 2011 10:33 pm

i think the bulldogs just did a good simple job on us , slowed play down which stops tigers . We werent there for a fight ,they were . There little men in defence were great which was our plan to run at them when it counted the dogs ran hard and set there plays up. We have some positional issues and and although we looked bad think it was just a poor start and the bulldogs are the real deal . they have explosive players and it was a couple of big plays that beat us . We have a great side it will all come together .

I was very impressed with the Dogs, they played with lots of energy and for a team with so many new faces they really gelled. On the other hand we lumbered in our hit ups and our attack was stop start and lacked timing. I thought our defense was pretty good

I said we werent there for a fight , they were . I think its proven we have the cattle then i look at what the opposition did , we were crap they played to there plan hung in there and then hit the trigger when they had to . When every1 tels u how good you are u know the mentality they will come with , nobody told the dogs how great they are and they came with a point to prove . Great wake up call this week at training Bring back ROYCE lol

i agree the dogs did well, especially in defence. we did ok and not as bad as everyones making out.

Dogs deserved their win. They defended very well and pushed us into a lot of side to side stuff. There forwards made some determined charges, particularly coming out of their own end. We were not terrible. 4 tries to 3, 2 long range tries that came from no where. However we were not great either. Our kicking game was disorganised and our combinations looked off.

Certainly not time to panic. We would of accounted for a few teams tonight with that average effort. The Dogs were hungry though and won the territorial battle. However we need to be careful. A 5 day turn around against a strong Warriors side. 0-2 is a very real possibility, so we need to play with a must win attitude at Leichhardt Oval on Saturday.

Is it just me, or do alot of posts on this forum end up being like a pee pee measuring contest?

There were times that the play went down, the kicking game was way off and we missed some crucial tackles in critical parts of the field.

But the Dogs played exceptional. Their kicking game was outstanding, the amount of times they kicked from inside their half and pinned us inside our 10 was unbelievable. Defence was solid for the first 20, their forwards played extremely well, they handled our clear tactic of running alot of traffic at Idris with ease.

We were beaten fair and square. I was a little disappointed in our performance, but I mean, I'm not really pi$sed about losing, the other team had the crowd behind them, had a massive point to prove, and played very well.

I don't think it's time to hit the panic button yet....I thought the Dogs did play pretty well.

Our kicking game was terrible and I'm still concerned about Lui, he made two crucial errors in the second half, when things should have been kept tight. I'd still rather Moltzen there........

My biggest disappointment was the talk on how we concentrated on defence in the off season ... I didn't see our defence as anything different to the last few years. Now we can't blame Royce either

The Tigers had bugger all cohesion in attack last night which was a big stumbling point. They never asked enough questions of the Bulldogs defence IMO. Had the Tigers attack gelled, it would have been a different story. As it was, the Bulldogs grinded out the game better than the Tigers did and they got the points for it. Looking forward to seeing what the Tigers can do the next time they meet.
