“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.
