“I thought we defended very smart together and their opportunities were limited to their most dangerous players.

"It was a good arm wrestle at the beginning of the game. For the first try we had a contest and it bounced our way.

"It was a good hard game of footy for the majority there. When they were chasing points, I felt we held our line pretty well.

"It’s important to score the first and not to concede before half time, then to score no matter how long it takes after the break.

"It’s a theme of what we are attempting to work on.”
