WHAT THE COACH SAID

The Riverine Herald - - GAME ON -

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.
