From the Coaches

Lady Rocks’ Colin Haldane is excited for Friday night’s clash:

“[We] always look forward to playing Kats. They approach the game and play it with great spirit. Our games are competitive and this one will be no different. With players working, ill or injured it’s a challenge to field your best team but we can’t wait for Friday.”

Craig Nicol, City of Edinburgh’s Head Coach, is expecting a tough night:

“We have been looking forward to this game for a while. Rocks have had very similar results to us, so it should be a closely contested game. We have had some excellent performances recently from all areas of our team. Players like Murron Marr and Zoe Gibson have been excellent contributors off the bench, so we are hopeful that our depth will be a key factor in the game.”
