Would be more ideal, but sometimes you need it this way. Lose to Melbourne and it may be looked at as an aberration at an unfamiliar ground against an opponent who we took too lightly.That is one way of looking at it, but I'd rather have the wake up call next week against Melbourne than give a leg-up to another top two contender.
I think this kind of game is better. Put the ball back in our court to ask us if we're good enough. Gives us more ammo to either respond or not be in it.
