Michael Rush (Ipswich):

“We’re disappointed. It was a game we’d earmarked to win to put us in the finals hunt, but that’s footy.”

“They were a bit more physical early, their pressure on the ball carrier was better than ours,. As the game went on, we started to work our way in to the game and it was a little bit late.”
