Capras boss questions culture and player attitude after another heavy defeat

RUGBY LEAGUE: CQ Capras coach Kim Williams labelled Saturday night's capitulation against top-of-the ladder Redcliffe Dolphins as the worst of the year.

Capras were well and truly in the hunt after a spirited first 40 minutes and did not allow Dolphins its customary free-flowing game.

"It was a tale of two halves backed up by our worst half of the season,” Willims said.

Redcliffe piled on 32 points in the second half and the Capras mentor questioned some of the Capras' players endeavour.

"Some of those guys embarrassed the guernsey and some wanted the easy way out,” Williams said.

"It was an extremely disappointing second half.

"The losing culture could be a problem at the club and at the start of the year, we'd managed to overcome it.

"The back half of the season was tough and I think some players need to take losing a bit more seriously.”

Dolphins' mentor Adam Mogg was delighted with how his charges responded after a somewhat slow start in the first half.

"It was a much better second half performance,” Mogg said.

It was a matter of keeping possession of the ball for longer and the tactic proved devastating in the second half.

"They have been working really hard and they managed to hold on to the footy in the second half.

"Our completion rate was good.” He was pleased with the input of Charlie Faingaa and Christopher Gesch, who he added 'did not miss a tackle' in the game.

But ever the perfectionist, Mogg said there is more upside. "We'll work on our first half at training during the week,” he said.
