Club legend slams 'awful' Kangaroos performance


//

Kangaroos premiership player David King has slammed the side's apparent lack of preparation after a Good Friday meltdown against Essendon.

After an inspirational win against the Adelaide Crows in Round 4, the Kangaroos struggled to put up a score, with the total of 58 its lowest against Essendon since 1991.

Following the loss, King slammed the Kangaroos for constantly allowing Essendon to bring the ball through the middle of the ground.

"Coming into today, they were the 17th or 18th ranked defence. They've coughed up another 116 points," he said.

"It looks directionless. It really does. It looks like, 'let's just engage and see what the opposition can throw at us'.

"They don't take anything off Essendon. They let them play their own game today. I'm not sure what they planned for. It was awful to watch.

"They knew Essendon were going to go through the corridor. They knew they were going to come at high speed, and yet they didn't stop them once."

The Kangaroos did not lead at any point in the match as the Bombers continually cut them open through the middle of the ground, finishing with 32 scoring shots from 55 Inside 50s.

King also put the pressure on Kangaroos coach Brad Scott who is one of the longest-tenured coaches in the AFL.

"I think the heat's coming," he said.

"At the end of next year, Brad Scott will be longest serving coach of the Kangaroos football club, going past Dennis Pagan.

"All the great coaches that have coached the one club for a decade have a stamp. This is who they are. This is what they demand. What do they demand at the Kangaroos right now? What do the Kangaroos stand for as a football club?

"You used to go to Kangaroos games three or four years ago, under Brad, and know that they were going to give 100 percent effort. They may not be good enough to win, but you were proud to attach yourself to the Kangaroos brand.

"Right now, it's shootout football. You can go there and see a 10-goal loss or a five-goal win, it's lucky dip."

The comprehensive defeat at the hands of Essendon drops the Kangaroos' percentage to a league-lowest 67.8 percent and have a tough trip to Adelaide to take on Port Adelaide in Round 6.
