WHAT THE COACH SAID
John Varcoe, Picola United coach: ‘‘Credit to Rennie, the better team won on the day and hats off to them for that. I’m proud of our players and the club for their efforts this year, and we have to be gracious in defeat. ‘‘We were keen to win, the conditions made it difficult for both sides and kept it low scoring. There was a lot of ground ball, and a strong wind blowing from one side. ‘‘They were a bit better around the hall and made the most of their chances. We were trying to improve our ball movement from half time onwards and get it to the more attacking side of the ground and make some attacking opportunities and crumbing in the final quarter, but they were able to prevent us from doing that. ‘‘We had some players who really stood up on the day, in particular our backline. Rhys Woodland our captain was named our best player, although they had the majority of the better players on the day,’’ he said.
