Canterbury halfback Matt Frawley understands his side has had a rough start to the 2018 season, but he wants Dogs supporters to get behind the struggling club.
The Bulldogs currently sit in 14th with a 3-10 record, and are the only side to have scored under 200 total points for the season so far.
With the results clearly frustrating fans, Frawley has told The Daily Telegraph the players are just as angry with the results, and has told fans they’re doing what they can to turn their season around.
“I can understand the frustrations with everything going on in and around the club and obviously with our performances on the field,” Frawley told The Daily Telegraph.
“The frustrations, as much as it is with the fans, it’s with the playing group as well. We are frustrated as well and we definitely don’t want to be in this position.
“It’s probably not easy watching us with how we are losing, those small losses.
“They want to see results now which is fair enough and we’ve got to start winning some games.”
After a pre-season of high expectations has gone on to deliver so little, Frawley expressed his disappointment at his side’s 2018 campaign.
“It’s shattering to tell you the truth. You put everything into it, we train hard and for whatever reason it’s just not happening for us at the moment,” Frawley added.
“It’s hard to take, yeah, rugby league is your life, it’s your job and you put so much into it and every week to come up short and not get the result, to not feel that winning feeling it is pretty disappointing.”
A win on Saturday would see the Bulldogs leapfrog the Titans and move up the ladder, and Frawley is urging Dogs fans to come out in droves and get behind the Dogs.
“Obviously it’s not where we want to be but we owe it to our fans and ourselves to put in good performance this week and hopefully it’s in front of a packed out Belmore,” Frawley said.
“Especially being on a Saturday afternoon we are hoping for a dry track and a big crowd and everyone is really excited.”
