Ben Lowe has praised the versatility and resilience of his teammates for getting on with their individual jobs – despite a mounting injury toll – to eventually claim victory on Good Friday against the Bulldogs at ANZ Stadium.
A major reshuffle during the match saw Luke Keary move to dummy-half, Greg Inglis move to five-eighth and Alex Johnston to fullback after a number of injuries were inflicted on the men in red and green.
“It definitely had a bit to it – full credit to the boys,” said Lowe of the match.
“Just getting through that game was a feat in itself. We had a few boys going down but the boys that stepped into those spots just aimed up.
“We went there with the purpose of getting the two points, so we’re happy with that.
“A lot people are saying we were lucky with refs calls and that,” said Lowe.
“But you make your own luck, and definitely, we kept putting ourselves into position to win the game of footy and we got the two points.
“We’ve got a pretty strong belief inside the Club that if we just stick at it that the tide will turn, and thankfully it did.”
