Bulldogs continue good form

Rugby League: The under- 16 Chinchilla Bulldogs continued their strong 2018 campaign last Saturday as the side secured a convincing 32-6 win over a game Kingaroy outfit.

Chinchilla Bulldogs coach Mark Lingard said it was a strong performance from his side however noted there were still some improvements to be made before their next match.

"The game went well,” he said.

"We started slow and failed to complete our sets in the first half which is something we'll need to address however, when we began to play with purpose and control the ball, we were able to find room around the middle and score some points.”

Lingard said his side's success throughout the season had been built on the back of their defence, something he hopes they continue as the business end of the season approaches.

"Defence has been our strong point all season and when that is in order it allows our attack to flourish,” he said.

"We have a lot of talented players with rugby league brains beyond their years, so I'm extremely confident that, if we play to the best of our ability, that we can challenge for the premiership.”

The under-16 Bulldogs will play at home on Saturday against a struggling Central Burnett side however Lingard refuses to take any opposition lightly.

"We were able to get the better of them in our last match-up but, as a team, we make sure we don't underestimate anyone,” he said.
