From Head Coach Andy Wagstaff...

"Today I thought we showed some real quality at times and managed to get the goals that we deserved. PNW were coming off two good away wins so their confidence was high and they are a good team. We were playing our 5th game in 10 days which is very tough on these lads. However, they managed to show strength and character and come through that challenge exceptionally well and now need to recover and prepare for NMU on Friday."
