The Hunters had to fight off a late surge from the Magpies to pick up two competition points from the round 14 clash.
“In the first half, we didn’t complete all our sets and kept defending. The Magpies had a lot of football. Second half was the same thing. Our defence got us to the end. It got us through.
“At half time, I just basically told the team to stick to the game plan. We knew the Magpies were going to back really hard on us and the result showed that.
“In terms of attack, we have a lot of work to do. We’re looking forward to this weekend,” said Marum.
