Skipper Bridge On Play-Off Chances - Apr 24, 2012

Andrew
Bridge
Newcastle Eagles veteran skipper Andrew Bridge (193-F-79) was still buoyant and bullish after Sundays 100 - 74 loss at Guildford Heat which meant that the Eagles had lost their last four regular season BBL Championship games heading in to next weeks play-offs against the same opposition.

'We were without four of our top seven guys, we didn't run any of our plays or anything like that. We've definitely changed some stuff up since the last time we played Guildford. We played zone most of the game today and we definitely won't be doing that next weekend. For us it was just about getting through without Darius, Fab or me getting injured and we've pretty much done that.'

One of the benefits of resting players with niggling injuries before the play-offs as Newcastle have done is that some of the regular bench payers have had to step up into the starting five and some of the Eagles junior players have had to be promoted to the senior squad.

'Those guys came in and I think after getting through the whole week they'll be better for the experience. They did some good things in the game today and in the other games through the week. Its just about being comfortable at this level, adjusting to the speed of the game, time to make your decisions really. You've got to know what you're going to do almost before you do it.'

Joel Madourie (196-F-86) in particular has had a high-scoring, minute logging week after patiently sitting on the bench playing limited minutes this season. He's stepped up in to the starting five and made the most of his opportunity according to Bridge.

'He's done a good job. He's obviously shown that he can play on the offensive end but we pretty much knew that anyway. Its just about learning and doing the right things at the right time. This last week he's touched the ball a lot. He's got get used to doing the same things when he doesn't get as many touches during the game and still be just as effective.'

Off-court Bridge is heavily involved in the Newcastle Eagles School of Excellence so how did he feel seeing the likes of Jack Wilson, Ellory Browne and Luke King step up to the senior squad from the Under-18's?

'When Paul Blake started the School of Excellence that was what we were looking for. Those guys have come through pretty much since they were 12 years old which is good to see. They don't need to rest on their laurels. Just because they've played these last few games doesn't mean they're guaranteed anything next season.'

Bridge had some sound advice for the young rookies.

'They need to make sure they gain shape, get stronger and work on their games as there are definitely things they need to do to be ready. I think the one thing that I took out of today was they could have been more aggressive especially on the defensive end where they got pushed around a little bit not expecting to make plays.'

'The older player tries to do that to the younger players and see how they react. If you hit back, if someone's trying to pick on you, and you hit back then they know they're in for a game. So obviously they need to go away and work on a few things'.

However, Bridge was understandably delighted that the Eagles School of Excellence has brought forward young talent that can be trusted at the senior level and he paid tribute to them.

'Overall they should be really happy with what they've done this week. But that's only the first step on the road for them. Fab (Flournoy) gave them an opportunity and now its up to them to take it.'

But, back to business and now the regular season is over, Bridge looked ahead to next weekend's clash with The Heat in the two-legged Quarter Final.

'Its been a long couple of weeks because we wrapped the league up early. We didn't want to lose four games in a row but it happened. However we're not reading too much in to that, we could have won all those four games if we'd needed to. It was just about letting guys rest up ahead of the play-offs and were ready to go now.'

Certainly few teams could afford to drop four games in a row and still go in to the Play-offs confident and being the team to beat but Newcastle Eagles are certainly one of those few.
