Read the match report: NNSW Waratahs head into Finals with win
With a looming Semi Final bout against 2013 newcomers the Victorian Flames this weekend, Head Coach Sue Hawkins said she was incredibly pleased with the NNSW Waratahs final regular season match win.
“Territory [Storm] put out a great game; we really had to earn every ball. Even though the score line was as big as it was, it didn’t feel that out on court,” Hawkins said.
“I was really pleased I was able to get 11 players out on court and when we made the changes [we] stepped it up … the players are ready to go for the finals.”
“Finals are a different mentality and you have to have your ‘A’ game. You can’t rest or snooze [or] you lose. We really have to be sharp and [have] got to be fired up, ready to go,” Hawkins concluded.
