Coaches Quotes

Matt Peet spoke to the press on Tuesday ahead of the game, saying: “They’re a team that everyone enjoys watching, they’re not going to come and roll over. They’re going to test us with the ball and they’re going to compete in defence. They’re a great team to watch and a tricky team to prepare for. We know we have to defend with energy and enthusiasm and be ready for anything from the quality players they’ve got.

“We’re showing signs that we’re finding our way. There’s positive signs, we’re healthy, the team’s connected so hopefully we can keep putting our best foot forward.”
