Coaches Report

‘A Sense of Character’

I believe in the quality of people at this football club and I have faith in the character of our playing group. We need this character to shine now. When we wrote down our best 22 several months ago we were excited and we genuinely believed that we could challenge the best.

However, it’s been a disappointing start to the season after what was such a positive preseason. Against Huonville we controlled the game for long periods. Unfortunately decision errors late in the game cost us badly and, to Huonville’s credit, they took their opportunities!

In the week to follow we thought we could bounce back and compete well against New Norfolk despite numerous personnel changes. However we panicked against a more experienced side, and we were smashed. When things go wrong our human trait is to get down in the dumps and sulk. This trait was evident during the game breaks on Friday. Somewhere in games like this we have to find energy and positivity to stick to our plans and draw upon our strengths when all seems lost.

From this point to get our season on track we must grow. We must admit and learn from our mistakes, and work harder and smarter. Specifically, we have identified defensive pressure and skill level as things we need to improve, and this has been the focus for training this week!

Together we will not shy away from challenges ahead, and we will accept a shared responsibility to get better.In these times the support of others is greatly appreciated! I am confident that if we will continually support and challenge each other the Tiges will rise! So bring on our next challenge!
