On Saturday we ventured for the short drive to Glenelg oval looking to bounce back from the previous week. Training had been really sharp all week and I thought the group was up for this one. The first quarter and a half we were right in the contest with our pressure up around the contest we were able to win plenty of footy but lacked that final touch to execute the skill.
As the game went on Glenelg got on top of us in all key areas with the main part there skill execution was a level above where we needed it to be at.
The mid season break will allow us to freshen up before we move into a really big month of football for the group. It is important we evaluate our own performances as well as the team and look to improve our performances.
The main 2 areas of focus in the last 7 weeks will be to ensure that we implement our defensive press efficiently and continue to work on our skill execution.
