“We were under pressure up front today and a lot of our younger players will have learned a hell of a lot in that area. Today was about the result more than the performance and we had to find a way to win. I am delighted we did that. We were under huge pressure when we were down to 14 men and the effort to keep them out in that period was the difference between us winning and losing the game.”
“The defence stood up really well and the desire and commitment of the players to hold out was outstanding. Andy (Goode) kept the scoreboard ticking over really well. We brought Andy here to give us the know-how to win tight games like this and he certainly did that today. He made the right calls at the right times and that was vitally important.”
“We had to do a lot of hard work up front in the tight areas and the boys did really well there. We allowed them to get back into it in the second half with some needless errors but overall we have to be very pleased with an important win."
