In my 22 years of coaching, that's one of the best games I've had the privilege of being a part of. Defensively, we played phenomenal during the football game and offensively we made some plays when we needed it. Our young guys showed effort, tenacity and a lot of want-to.
There is a chance Chris Munce will come back from Hong Kong to ride her in the Caulfield Cup at that weight.
I was nervous. Not nervous for any other reason just that I thought we deserved to win. I felt like we outplayed them and I didn't want something like that (to lose on the final play) to happen two weeks in a row.
She will run in the George Main instead.
I thought she should have been much closer so I wanted to give her the opportunity to race those fillies and see if she's up to them.
Biggest win, ... The kids just played phenomenal. They executed the game plan well. The defense stepped up and the offense made big plays.
It's a shame we came up on the short end, but our kids really battled.
I thought about rolling the dice and going for two. But I felt we had the momentum.
If you look at her last run it was great, she was wide and covered more ground than any other horse and was only beaten about four lengths by Paratroopers.
