After a super performance against the Raiders last week, it was an effort Coach Andy Patmore could not downplay. The boys played some enterprising footy and come away from this game knowing they have put a mark on the competition.

A performance like that, is hard to downplaythe effort was outstanding to be up for a big game like they were, is a really good sign, said Patmore.

The young Bulldogs side certainly would have got plenty out of beating the competition heavy weights, but its about no getting too carried away with a win like this and re-focus on what lies ahead.

This week they take on the seventh placed Rabbits, who have really played some good footy over the past two weeks and with a good crowd expected on Friday night, the young Souths side will have a point prove to make sure they keep themselves in the eight.

Souths have been real improverswe will need to get the boys heads back on the ground after last week, said Patmore.

It can be easy to think it is going to happen after a great performance the week before, but the Bulldogs must continue to build on what they have done over the last couple of months to make sure they head into the finals with plenty of confidence behind them.

We need to keep working on our process and make sure we have that real good momentum he have built over the recent weeks, said Patmore.

It will be a big crowd come Friday and although it is not the Dogs home game, the young pups should expect plenty of blue and white support at ANZ Stadium and with that in mind, it will be about producing the same type of footy we have all come to see of late.

A great opportunity for the Holden Cup side to continue to build towards September, but also register their ninth win in a row.
