Round 8 Media: Des Hasler
Head Coach Des Hasler addresses the media ahead of the Bulldogs round 8 clash with the Titans.
Below is a recap of his media conference.
What response are you hoping for from the side this week?
The game against the Warriors was there for us to get the two points, but when you get opportunities like that with the disruptions around the corner like Origin, there the kind of two points you like to bank. It’s important that tomorrow we grab those two points. Both sides are coming off losses and I think it will be a good game of footy.
What’s been the focus this week?
We’ve gone back over a few things and it’s really about an individual responsibility as well. We have worked hard at that.
Will James and Aiden start?
Yes they will start.
What was the theory behind starting James and Aiden from the bench last week?
We thought with the short turnaround that both boys had been playing big minutes and just looked at a different tactic. I thought Dave Klemmer and Tim Browne did a good job off the bench, but they will definitely start this week.
Get ready for an afternoon of fireworks when the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs host the Gold Coast Titans at ANZ Stadium.
The Bulldogs and Titans have played out some cracking encounters in recent years and this one has all the makings of another classic game.
