SUDDENLY, North Ballarat Roosters stagnated.
Players emphatically agreed when their coach called for intensity in the three-quarter-time huddle, but their nine-point lead at the final break quickly morphed into a 19-point loss at Eureka Stadium yesterday.
The Selkirk Roosters did not score in the final quarter against Victorian Football League top-four contender Williamstown.
They looked flat, defeated, before the Seagulls even really took full control.
Intensity was lost.
Roosters coach Gerard FitzGerald said his team showed it was close in measuring up against a top-four team – only 19 points short – but the Roosters were not quite there yet.
