I also thought that our back four, Robert Holstein, Patrick Robertson, Kyle Russell and Wesley Kent did a great job for us today. We still have a lot to work on and we need to be more fit and have better discipline. This was a great weekend, we played two very good teams and I am very pleased with the way we defended."
