Falcons look to continue winning attitude

RUGBY LEAGUE: Sunshine Coast Falcons coach Glen Dreger is refusing to get ahead of himself following his side's 36-10 drubbing of the PNG Hunters.

Dreger could be forgiven for basking in some glory after coaching the team to his second victory, with moments of success few and far between.

But Dreger was quick to point out that his team still had a lot of work to do if it was to edge up the Intrust Super Cup ladder where they currently sit second-last. "Things are starting to click but there are still a lot of things we need to work on and we will continue to do that," he said.

"The win is a step in the right direction and gives us a platform to build on, but we will not be getting carried away."

The Falcons were superb on Sunday at Sunshine Coast Stadium and gave their loyal fans a reason to be optimistic about the future as the Coast side dominated one of the best teams in the competition.

Dreger said it was important the club showed its supporters the team was improving. "It was a massive crowd (2200 people) and I am glad the boys put together a performance like that and we needed to do that," he said. "They were fantastic and it is a real positive for the club to have got the result and played the way we did."

The Falcons had been good in patches during matches but suffered from inconsistency due to poor ball control and a completion rate of less than 50% during their opening three matches.

The Coast had no such problems on Sunday in completing almost 90% of their sets which saved them from chasing their tails as they had done during the majority of their opening games.

Some ill-discipline crept in during the back end of the match which Dreger put down to over excitement. "We probably started to throw the ball around a bit at the end there and lost our way a bit, but that's probably because the boys had such a big lead and hadn't experienced that much in the past," he said. "I can't blame them too much for that but it is something we will talk about."

The Falcons face Tweed Heads on Saturday (away) before taking on Wynnum Manly (away), have a bye then tackle Mackay (away) before returning to Sunshine Coast Stadium against Souths Logan on May 16.
