Deniliquin coach Troy Bartlett said he is going to make ‘‘quite a few changes’’ to the Rams side following its fourth straight loss on Saturday.
Playing at home the Rams matched it with Barooga for the first half, but undisciplined footy saw the Hawks run out five-goal winners.
A disappointed Bartlett said Barooga scored the majority of its goals through Deni’s mistakes, and that seven goals from poor discipline ‘‘cost us the game’’.
‘‘In our first month of footy I think we have made good improvements, however, after the weekend I think we went backwards in a couple of areas,’’ Bartlett said.
‘‘Our discipline was terrible. We gave away seven 50m penalties, four of which resulted in goals.
‘‘We also gave away five free kicks inside their 50, three of which resulted in goals, and a number of poor mistakes in our defensive half also cost us.’’
Final score: Barooga 14.7 (91) def. Deniliquin 9.7 (61).
Playing in the wet the Rams kept up with Barooga early on, with each team kicking two goals in the first quarter.
Another two goals each saw the Rams trailing by one point at half-time, but Barooga was stronger at the contest and outmuscled the Rams in the second half to slam home 10 goals to five.
Todd Gallagher (four goals) and Brett Macdonald (three) were the Rams’ best players, while runners Ricky Gittens and Lachie MacDonald worked hard.
The match was fiery at times and Deniliquin’s Jack Tyndall was reported for striking Ben McNeill late in the game, while Barooga’s Tim Hargreaves was reported for striking 17 year-old Ram Jake Marshall.
Tyndall accepted a one-match ban, but Hargreaves is due to appear at the tribunal this week.
‘‘Our accountability was very poor, which we will address quite a bit at training this week,’’ Bartlett said.
‘‘The effort was good again, we just let ourselves down with discipline and mistakes.
‘‘We are going to make quite a few changes this week (against Congupna) and reward blokes who have been playing well in the seconds.’’
