HAPPY WITH THE TWO POINTS?
Satisfied at the way we dug in and fought for the win. All the balls did not stick but we responded in a manner that was technically and tactically good enough to deserve 2 points.
WAS IT TOUGH GOING IN PARTICULAR IN DEFENCE OF OUR LINE IN THE LAST 20 MINUTES?
It was tough going defending our line for almost 80 minutes. The best team never loses in a contest; we handled the negatives far better than they did.
ANY COMMENT ON THE 40/20 THAT WASN'T?
It was and it wasn't. The video clearly shows that the touch judge's guesstimate from 45m away was wrong, just as the video shows that the same touch judges guesstimate that Henry Faafili stepped in touch from 35m away was wrong. Negatives happen in a game, human error is a part of sport and we handled the situations very professionally.
