Marum: The better team won

“The better team won on the day” was what SP Hunters coach, Michael Marum, had to say after last night’s shocking 14-10 loss to the Tweed Heads Seagulls.

“It was a tough game. They were hungrier for the points. They deserved the victory.

“Our boys didn’t play well. We really need to sit down properly and look at our game heading forward. We’ve got a lot of work to do,” said Marum.

Marum added the absence of captain and five-eighth Ase Boas was not a contributing factor to the loss to the last-placed Seagulls.

“From the start, we didn’t stick to our game plan. It’s not an excuse missing the skipper. We had 13 boys who are all capable of playing.

“We knew it was going to be a tough one because the most nervous games are the ones you play top versus the bottom team. Full credit to the Seagulls,” said Marum.
