“The important thing is to continue to learn how to win , we played against a team that really wanted to sit and keep the game close.
It was difficult to break their block defensively, but I thought my players showed a lot of patience before breaking their defense”.

Aside the general performance of the team Waldrum was specific in lauding Patricia George having played her in two different positions for the two matches.
“I have known her from her days in the US, she could play outside back with the intent of going forward often which we lacked in the first half.
She came in and did quite well for herself”.
