Western Bulldogs head train Luke Beveridge states there are still locations his side can enhance, complying with the Canines’ comfortable 19-point sway Brisbane at Mars Stadium on Saturday mid-day.
Speaking with media post-match, Beveridge claimed while he was “rapt for the young boys”, he saw the result as a missed possibility to truly hurt the Lions.
” It was much more workman-like than anything, which is a pity since we were on top of things early and possibly played rather well right into the wind, yet left a little bit around with the wind,” Beveridge said.
” We got beaten one-on-one ahead of the centre a bit, and we didn’t kick it that well out of blockage as the game went on.
” Brisbane is a great group (with) strong bodies and they brought their ferocity and were always most likely to respond to any momentum that you have and also attempt as well as an arrest that in their favour.
” To maintain them (to 44 inside-50s) is a good outcome– they have an unsafe forward line. We had 20 inside-50s in the last as well as just kicked one goal to make sure that’s not an excellent strike price, which is a little bit of a shame in the plan of points.”
Beveridge praised rising ruck-forward Tim English (17 disposals, nine marks, three goals), as well as off-season, hire Adam Treloar (29 disposals, ten takes on) for their contributions as well as effect.
” It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to work out a gamer that tall is going to take in several of the attention for others– (Tim) will get the spoils at times, as well as he got some today, as well as other times other individuals will certainly obtain the incentive,” Beveridge stated.
“( Tim as well as our forwards) are matching each other rather well.
“( Adam) is a marquee player in the competitors, as well as we knew that when I initially fulfilled him at my area before we were able to do the deal.
” We understood full well the top quality of gamer we were obtaining– any uncertainty around his injury history had not been a worry for us.
” He’s always played well against the Pet dogs, and his last two weeks as well as again today, you saw exactly how creative as well as productive he was for us, and that’s interesting for our team because he’s a little bit of a factor of distinction in some of the important things we try as well as pull off a week to week.”
The ladder-leading Bulldogs will certainly seek to keep their unbeaten document when they host the Gold Coast Suns at Wonder Arena next Saturday.
