Pre-match Quotes

Speaking ahead of the game, Warriors Prop Forward Holly Speakman said: “The team was on a high after the game, it showed that we can play with the best but that game has gone and we need to focus on the game ahead now.

“The team is growing week-by-week, we have great athletic bodies in the team and that showed in the Nines. It’s exciting to be around those young players that are building in confidence and showcasing their skills.”
