A THUMPING 123-point win and an 8-1 record half way through the season would satisfy most teams, but Swifts still have work to do.

That was the opinion of Baggies coach Ben Martin after Saturday's big victory over Pimpinio.

An eight-goal haul from big man Julian Carr set the stage for the Baggies, but Martin criticised some 'selfish' performances from Carr's team-mates.

"There were a few players out there doing their own thing," he said.

"That's two weeks in a row that has happened, so there might need to be a few changes so the message gets through."

Martin said the team's overall performance was still good, and he was particularly impressed with the way it played through Carr at centre-half-forward.

He praised the effort of the overmatched Tigers.

"They're under a fair bit of pressure and they didn't throw the towel in at any stage when they could have," he said.

Tigers coach Mal Coutts agreed the effort was there from his team, but the gap in skill was apparent.

"We have to work and work and work for our goals, but they were able to take it down the other end and get 11 or 12 easy ones," he said.

"Our endeavour was pretty good for most of the day and our tackling after half-time was better, but the disposal was very ordinary."

Defenders Aiden Lawson and Alex Hill were again among the Tigers' best.

Jack Wood was their best, while Baggies Owen Phillips and Zach Salmi stood up for their side.
