Quote | Head Coach Craig Hendry

How do you feel your team performed against Rose tonight?

"We lost early goals and that could've caused heads to go down but the tougher things get, the harder this groups seems to battle. We forced a couple fo corner kicks in each half and put together a few combinations in attack, but their attacking power pinned us back for long spells. Rose is a very good team and I love playing them; their program is something we strive to emulate."
