Winger Marcelo Montoya says the best way to deal with a performance like the one against the Manly Sea Eagles, is to put it behind you and turn your focus to the next game.
The Bulldogs headed to Lottoland in Round four full of confidence after a good win over the Warriors the week before, but, unfortunately, the side were unable to reproduce that winning form and were beaten 36 to nil.
While it’s disappointing, the side realise the importance of bouncing back and performing this Thursday night against the Broncos at ANZ Stadium.
“The best way to deal with a performance like that is to put it behind you and focus on the next game. You can’t dwell on a loss like that. There is plenty to work on and we‘ve reviewed what needs to improve,” said Montoya.
Montoya is only two games into his NRL career and while he is still adjusting to life as a first grader, the local junior’s journey has been made easier thanks to the senior players in the squad.
“First grade is very intense. I’m still adjusting, but with the senior boys in our side helping me along the way, it’s been a good journey so far. I’ve been blessed to have played in the juniors and to be given an opportunity to play first grade at the Bulldogs,” added Montoya.
It is State vs State when the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs host the Brisbane Broncos in their first home game at ANZ Stadium in 2017.
The Bulldogs will be hoping for a repeat of this fixture from last year when they ran out 40-14 winners in a convincing victory.
