Richo throws his left-field theory at John Worsfold
Essendon coach John Worsfold says it’s unlikely his players got into “holiday mode” before Saturday night’s loss to Fremantle.
But he said Matthew Richardson’s left-field theory was plausible in some instances.
“You’ve got the swimming pool there … there’s people having pina coladas. I swear you get into travel mode!” the Tiger great said of the Bombers’ sluggish performance.
He asked Worsfold about it on Wednesday.
“There’s always that risk on the road … but they really didn’t have a lot of downtime (at the hotel) so I wouldn’t have thought we could use that as an excuse,” Worsfold said on Sportsday.
“But there are a lot of factors week to week to take into account.”
