Sometimes it’s all about staying confident.

Languishing at the bottom of the ladder, the Wentworthville Magpies will enter their match as massive underdogs against the Canterbury Bulldogs at Pirtek Stadium on Saturday.

“We’ve used 29 players so far in the first five weeks – that’s a big turnover of players,” Magpies coach Brett Cook said.

Although the odds are against them, Cook is making sure his side stays positive.

“The boys are in good spirits even though they’re disappointed about losing last week,” Cook said.

Canterbury won their past two matches and will be keen to cement a top-four position with a victory over Wentworthville but the Bulldogs don’t intimidate Cook.

“It’s been no different to how we prepare this week,” Cook said. “We’re still working hard together at training.

“It’s about working and getting familiarity and making sure we do better in certain areas.”
