WERRIBEE coach John Lamont referenced mosquitos and camels in a bid to inspire his team to victory in Sunday’s VFL clash against Northern Blues.

“Who’s been bitten by a mosquito? All of us, we all have been,” Lamont said to his players in the three-quarter-time huddle.

“Not many of us have been bitten by a camel, have we?

“It’s the little things that bite you.”

His words of wisdom had the desired effect as the Tigers booted 11 goals in the final half-hour and toppled the Blues by 63 points, 25.15 (165) to 15.12 (102), at Avalon Airport Oval.

Lamont’s address has since received plenty of attention on social media.

“It’s the little things that bite you — that was the crux of it,” he said today.

“As a coach you use things like that. It might resonate and stick in their head a bit more.

“They had a bit of a laugh and took the piss out of the coach a bit afterwards, but hopefully it sticks with them a little bit.

“I felt that we just made a few little errors that were costly.

Huge last quarter for the bees. They travel to box hill who have lost their last 7 games and werribee have a good recent record against them. Will be two desperate teams against each other.
