It offers you the platform to go and attack the game as well. We were decent on the ball and we survived some marvelous pressure in the second half as well which will stand us in good stead for the playoffs to come
We have had so many games where we have just fallen short and we have been unfortunate with some results, but that shows you have just got to keep working hard as well.
It was tough. When you are withstanding a lot of pressure it is difficult especially against some good players as we were. The manner they play they like to operate the ball and move it side to side.
