“Me and Reidy [Jamie Reid] up front, Reidy was excellent today holding the ball up. I was more the one getting around him, getting on the ball, getting the flick-ons, getting in behind and I enjoyed my part in how we played. The players, everyone was excellent today. Fought hard, battled hard, we scored some great goals as well.
