NYC Preview v Sydney Roosters
Thursday 11 April 2013 11:22 AM
After a slow start to the game last week, the NYC boys kicked into gear and notched up their fourth win of the season. This week will certainly require a committed 80 minute performance when they face-off against the seventh placed Roosters.
The young Bulldogs currently sit in third position on points differential with only the Panthers side heading into round six undefeated.
The young pups do not need to worry about the result, but for these young men it is worrying about the processes which are to complete their sets, starting well and committing to there game plan which will enable them to get the result they want. Completion rates are certainly a focus for our pups, as 66% completion with the ball is just not good enough. It definitely is an area that Coach Andy Patmore has spoken to the group about.
With a chance to be five wins from six starts going into the representative weekend, it give our pups an opportunity to show the members and fans what they are capable of, but more importantly show each other what a committed group they are. With a number of injuries to start the year to our NYC side it sure has been impressive to see the depth of the squad we have here at the club.
