NORTH Warrnambool Eagles need to play as a team if they want to regain their early season zip.
That’s the assessment from co-coach Brendan Murfett after the Eagles slumped to their second straight loss to a Hampden league top five rival on Saturday.
Murfett said the Eagles would take lessons from the 74-point capitulationto Koroit.
“We need to man up a lot more and need to play four quarters of football instead of just five-minute patches,” he said.
“Everyone needs to work for one another. Sometimes we have people that just want to get the ball instead of doing the team thing.
“They played a lot better brand of football today and they showed us what accountable football looks like.”
Murfett said the Eagles’ forward line struggles were reflective of the whole team.
The Eagles managed seven goals against a steadfast Saints’ defence which repelled with ease.
