What the coaches said
Steve Jenkins (Redcliffe):

“It was a pretty good contest.”
“I think their delivery into our forward line was more purposeful than what we were able to achieve.”
“We win a lot of patches of games and we don don’t’ get the reward on the scoreboard for that but we’re not able to put full quarters together and consequently full games together.”
“The score line difference is usually the result of five or six-minute lapses here and there through the course of the match.”
“A lot of our best players have been 22 and 21 year old players ,so we’ve got a pretty bright future.”
“The majority of the side have played less than 50 games. We’ll just continue to grind away at areas of improvement.”
