BENDIGO Dragons coach Robert Hunter believes the score line doesn’t truly reflect how his team played at the weekend.
The Dragons took on the Warriors, losing 44 to 6 on Sunday.
“The score line does not come to close to showing how much we were actually in the game,” Hunter said.
“Our biggest concern is our inability to convert when we get into the red zone.”
Hunter said the game showed how much the team would have to improve if it were to compete against the more skilled teams.
Despite the loss Hunter praised the efforts of the Dragons’ reigning most valuable player Callum Kirkpatrick.
“Callum played another solid game at running back before succumbing to injuries,” he said.
“On the defensive side of the ball, David Bozza did well with some interceptions and important tackles.”
In round four action the Bendigo Dragons will host the Berwick Miners at Henry Turner Reserve in Maribyrnong at 10.30am on Saturday.
Hunter said it would be the first time his team would play Berwick.
“This is the team we are most likely going to be fighting against for a finals spot,” he said.
