“As a coaching staff we knew we needed the right mix of skill, speed, character and players who would fit into our system and embrace their role and we feel we have that.

“We are looking forward to working with this group and are all excited by a home tournament and we can’t wait till December. We would like to thank all the players for their effort and commitment to the programme.”
