NSW and St George-Illawarra Dragons back rower Ben Creagh has admitted that his side was rattled by the South Sydney Rabbitohs when they were thrashed 41-6 on Saturday night. <br><br>“We were quite disappointed when we got those first couple of tries disallowed…they scored a couple of quick tries after that and I think it rattled us a bit,” Creagh said to Bigpond Sports Weekend.<br>&nbsp;<br>“After half time we weren’t switched on at all and got blown away.<br><br>“It was just disappointing, our effort in defence just wasn’t there like it was all year.”<br><br>The deceptively fast back-rower alluded to the Dragons' inexperience in coming from behind as a key factor in Saturday night’s second half capitulation.<br><br>“Definitely during the game there’s a lot less enthusiasm… especially when we are down like we were last night.<br><br>“Everyone was a bit flat… we did so much defence and we kept dropping balls which we don’t do.<br><br>“Kicks out on the full, silly errors, it just really hurt us.”<br><br>As excitement for finals footy heats up among players, fans and coaches alike... South Sydney may have uncovered a blue print for how to consistently break the once bullet-proof Dragons defence… speed.<br><br>“Their halves were great last night. Isaac Luke’s a great talent, he is so quick out of dummy half… hard to handle.&nbsp; A lot of quick guys in that team.”<br><a href=""><b><br>CLICK HERE to view the entire BSW interview.</b></a><br>
