Lloydy told 3AW Football there are some clear areas for the Dogs to address, including:

  • The ruck
  • Overuse of the handball
  • Getting Tom Liberatore back into the team
  • Simplifying the players’ roles
  • Recovering the pressure they showed in last year’s finals

But most of all, Lloydy said it comes down to settling the 22 that play each week.

“The lack of cohesion is really hurting the team,” Lloydy said.

“Bulldogs fans would not have a clue who their best forward line is.”

Lloydy said the Dogs are showing signs of the dreaded Premiership hangover.
