“Our individual qualities are less, but our players are physically strong, top fit and very disciplined. The willingness of Australians is unprecedented, that just sits there, you do as a coach actually nothing to do.”
The Deventer hopes that his team also have tactical everything is correct. “In a creative and attacking sense, we have tried what touches. I’ve always said: you do not individually the best players to have as a collective to function well.”
