Greater Western Sydney coach Leon Cameron labelled his side’s performance as flat and boring after they suffered a heavy defeat against Geelong.
GWS had hoped to make the AFL top eight this season but they have only picked up two wins from the opening eight games and face a huge battle to get there.
Speaking to the media after the 53-point defeat against the Cats, Cameron was pretty frank with his assessment of his side’s performance.
"We were boring at times," Cameron told reporters. "It was a really flat, really flat performance. We couldn't get that run that we had last week, we couldn't get that flow.
"We made some really poor, silly decisions going inside 50. We're disappointed as a footy club, we probably only had three or four winners on the day."
Cats coach Chris Scott was much happier, in particular with his forward line as Jeremy Cameron starred against his former club, while Tyson Stengle also impressed.
Geelong were missing captain Joel Selwood but that did not seem to matter. And that is the sign of a good team Scott believes.
"The best teams in history, to my observation, are always the ones that have players where if one doesn't get you the other one will," Scott said.
"(Cameron) came in last year, had a really interrupted pre-season. We were really looking at this as being the year when we could build that cohesion.
"(Stengle) is really important for us and we brought him in for a specific reason. It's the support that's been put around him that allowed him to back himself and play with a bit of freedom."
