"We've reviewed Saturday's game completely honestly. Everybody was happy to put their hand up for the mistakes they made.

"Media fallout over the last couple of days has allowed us to be aware of the disappointment of fans and members back in Melbourne.

"Everyone's excited to get out there and right some of the wrongs from last weekend.

"We've got a massive opportunity to turn things around and I'm expecting a big response from the players this week."
