Illawarra Cutters Head Coach Scott Logan has conceded his team cannot dwell on the 40-26 loss to the Wyong Roos at WIN Stadium, Wollongong on Saturday.
The Cutters were in control of the game and up 26-0 approaching the hour mark before conceding 40-points in the final half of the game.
The Cutters are on their designated bye round this week which Logan admits will benefit his players who can rest and re-align their focus on the upcoming tasks ahead.
“Its a little bit hard to believe what happened in that period of play,” said Logan.
“I thought in the start of the game our attention to detail in the ruck and our overall defence was good but getting the early lead might have led to a little complacency.
“Not having a game this week is not ideal as I'm sure the players would like to bounce back straight away but it does give me an extra week to prepare as well as dissect what happened.
“It’s not ideal to take that form into the finals but what can you do?
“ If we do our homework and make the most of the break we have and start training well then I’m certain we can bounce back.”
