What the coaches said:

Mick Rush (Ipswich):

“It was a good solid win and a good percentage booster in such a tight competition.”

“I was really happy with was our tackling, our pressure on the ball carrier, our skill level and our ability to hit up targets was good.”

“Gillespie’s been a good target and very accurate when it goes into his area.”

“One –out with an opposition player, he’s very difficult to beat and he’s been excellent for us.”

The Swans’ intensity crushed the ladder-leading Magpies, keeping them goalless in the first quarter.

Ben Long (Pine Rivers):

“It’s pretty big for us.”

“Being our first year in division three, building up and starting to get a consistent side in, everything’s heading in the right direction.”

“When they stick to the game plan,  we can compete with the better teams.

Stuart Vimpany (Coomera):

“It was a massive reality check for us.”

“I think we went in a bit too confident but all credit to Pine Rivers, they did their homework and had us all worked out.”

“It sends a massive check that it’s not that easy. You need to keep doing the hard things.”

“We basically start again now…it’s back to scratch and back doing the things we know how to do build the confidence back.”

“They beat us in every aspect of the game tackling pressure, hard at numbers, everything that we wanted to do.”
