He was able to come up with crucial buckets at crucial times to ensure his side maintained momentum.

He said the experience in the side’s semi-final win the previous week set it up well to perform in the grand final.

“That really put us in good stead for what we faced early,” he said.

“Our guys really came through in the end.”

He said he had not wanted to get ahead of himself but started to think the side would get the win with about three minutes to go.

“We had built up that lead and I took a bit of a step back at that point,” he said.
