ISP Preview - Round 7

Blacktown Workers Sea Eagles Coach Stephen Hales says finding some consistency and improving their discipline are the keys to his side returning to its winning ways.

The Sea Eagles have lost their past three matches in the Intrust Super Premiership to slip to 10th place on the ladder after a strong start to the season.

"We are not putting together an 80 minute performance. The difference between our best and worst performance is just too far apart at the moment,'' Hales said.

"It comes down to consistency. We need to get better and also to work through the tough periods in games.

"There are periods there where we are playing some really good footy but we just can't put it together for the full 80 minutes.

"If you are a little bit off in any game in this competition, you are going to get exposed, and that's what's happened to us."

The Sea Eagles tackle Wyong Roos on the Central Coast on Saturday.

"Wyong are a real quality side with a good mix of experience and enthusiasm,'' Hales said.

"We know that if we can put in an 80 minute performance then we are going to give ourselves a good shot at victory.

"The boys know what we need to do against Wyong after looking at what went wrong in the loss to the Warriors in Auckland last Saturday.

"They know they have to bounce back. It just can't continue to be a case of next week, next week.

"As a team, we were not happy with what we put out there last week, so it is time to rectify that against Wyong."
