You'd have thought the master coach would've been quite happy with South Sydney's comeback win over the Raiders in chilly Canberra on Thursday night.
It was their seventh straight victory, the fourth time in five weeks they'd scored 30 or more points, and a display littered with the attacking brilliance of star trio Adam Reynolds, Benji Marshall and Cody Walker.
But Wayne Bennett wasn't happy in the post-match press conference.
"What'd you like out of that performance?" one journalist asked.
"Ahh, not much," Bennett replied in typical unexpansive fashion.
When pressed further on the performance he opened up ever so slightly.
"We just mentally [are] not strong enough at the moment. Our attitude was good for a month there but we just went back into old habits.
"We're only playing for 20 minutes, 25 minutes, that's all we played for tonight."

And on Marshall, who became the most capped New Zealand player in the NRL competition in his 332nd match on Thursday, and who had a hand in several Rabbitohs tries?
"I think Benji was reading about himself all week, I thought at 36 you didn't do that any more," Bennett remarked.
No doubt he's trying to keep his high-flying Bunnies grounded, but even for Bennett this was particularly droll.
