“They’ve got some really good players for this level.

“With their finances and the size of their support, there’s an expectation there, for sure and now they’re in a really good position.

“Out of all of the teams I’ve watched this season, my feeling is that they’re the best team in the division, the most rounded team, both in and out of possession.

“It’s definitely a tough game but for us, we want to be ourselves."
