Magpies: One of our best games this season

Coach of the Souths Logan Magpies, Jon Buchanan, said yesterday’s loss to the SP Hunters was still one of his side’s best games this season.

“It wasn’t the prettiest in attack. I thought both sides were really willing in defence. The end result was two tries a piece. It was a really good game of footy.

“We’re a bit bruised and battered but we’ll be alright. We have a bye this weekend and we’re looking forward to a break to freshen before our next game,” said Buchanan.

“Thanks for having us, it’s always good coming here to PNG.”

Captain of the Magpies, Phil Dennis, added that a lot had been taken out from the 12-8 loss.

“It’s always tough going home with a loss. We’re heading in the right direction. We know where we’re going. That game was another step in the right direction,” said Dennis.

The Magpies have a bye this weekend for round 15.
