CATS CREAMED

Wynyard coach Shannon Bakes has blasted the attitude and commitment levels of his players after its 32-point loss to East Devonport on Saturday.

While injury currently sees several of the Cats best players on the sidelines, Bakes was unimpressed with those missing through unavailability, and pulled no punches in his post-match interview.

“It’s really disappointing that we have some guys that have brought in to the team, like Chris Bryan who played the day after his baby was born, and Daniel Franks who has come back from retirement to have a crack, while some blokes gooff on holiday,” Bakes said.

“In my opinion we just have too many selfish people.”

A winwould have all but guaranteed the Cats a spot in the finals, but they now find themselves back in the pack with the Swans and Circular Head in the jostle for fourth and fifth spot.

“We want to make sure we get a home final and we need to win these sort of games,” Bakes said.

“I honestly think our guys expected an East Devonport team from last year.

“I spoke to Peter Templeton (Penguin coach) on Thursday and he said East were rampant against them, and that’s what they were today.

“I was surprised we were still in the game at half time because the amount of uncontested football East got was unbelievable.

Even with a week off due to the split round, Bakes promised there would be some hard yards on the training track this week in preparation for the final three games of the season, which includeclashes with Penguin and Latrobe.

“It will be solid this week, and we can’t relax. Bakes said.

“I’ve been a bit nice with them this week and that backfired.”
