Man of the match
Definitely (happy with the win), more importantly for us to get on the board, hopefully we can get a little bit of momentum going on. We owe it to our fans. To come back and put a performance on the board like we did tonight is definitely a positive moving forward. (On Aaron Hardie) Absolutely brilliant.
He’s the one to watch out for, he’s had a fantastic pre-season, he started well in Shield season as well, he’s improving every game and we love to see that. Roy at the top, showing intent, but then we speak about partnerships through the middle, Mitch and Inglis did a fantastic job for us to get over the line
