JAMES HOL­LAND

Australian Four Four Two - - GRAND FINAL FEVER -

Jets player

The ball hit my arm. It wasn’t in­ten­tional. I re­mem­ber as I jumped there was some­one in front of me and I couldn’t see the ball prop­erly. My heart sank be­cause I thought straight away, penalty. The ref didn’t see it, ob­vi­ously, which was lucky for me. But a few of the Mariners boys did and it all kicked off. Ac­tu­ally I didn’t no­tice the in­ci­dent with Danny be­cause at the time the Griffiths boys [Adam and Joel] had sort of run up to me and said: ‘What were you think­ing?’ and I was fo­cused on that. In the end I felt hor­ri­ble. Ob­vi­ously the blame wasn’t on me for what Danny did but at the same time, I was in the Olympic team with him and I knew how much that whole tour­na­ment meant to him.
