Dons coach hits back at AFL ‘cheap shots’

Besieged Essendon coach John Worsfold has bristled at “cheap shots” from AFL critics, insisting he is constantly evolving to get the best out of his players.

The Bombers’ finals hopes hang in the balance after last week’s deplorable 104-point loss to the Western Bulldogs at Marvel Stadium, where Worsfold came under attack for his lack of emotion while coaching from the bench.

“People can target me on that but that’s pretty shallow … it’s a cheap shot but that’s fine,” Worsfold told reporters on Wednesday.
