Chinchilla in the doghouse again
BOTH Bulldogs teams received a pummelling from St George over the weekend with a severe concussion in the first half leaving the dogs a man down for the remainder of the A grade game.
Matt Nothdurft went down five minutes into the A grade game with a suspected concussion leaving the side a man
The reserve team went down 38-18 despite nabbing two impressive tries against St George in the last fifteen minutes of the game.
Coach, Brendan Waters said the lack of bodies at training was to blame for the home sides sloppy performance.
"We're still a real fresh team from last year, we really need to be seeing consistent numbers at training in order for us to build off of this week's performance and work on a few things,” he said.
In the A grade, St George scored one last try in the dying seconds against the knackered Bulldogs team leaving them on a defeated 28-32.
"In the end it came down to fatigue. We were playing with 11 or 12 men for most of that game and it really showed in the last half with a lot of silly mistakes,” team captain, Hayden Bender said.
"We need to get more bodies to training and start taking it more seriously,” he said.
"This season we're seeing a lot of inconsistencies in numbers mainly due to the players weekend work commitments, which makes it hard for the team to produce strong performances week after week,” Bulldogs president, Brad Smith said.
As for Nothdurft, who was airlifted to Toowoomba over the weekend, Smith confirmed he has remained in a stable condition, however he will be out for four weeks.
