"But I don't think it is time for harsh reactions and judgements across individuals or the team as I see it".
'I don't think this will be the worst thing for us because I keep hearing positive great stories about us over the last six weeks or eight weeks. "For my dad to play for the club for 21 years and for me to make my debut and get a win for the boys, it is so pleasing". Today was one of those days.
