Comments

Northland coach Ramesh Chandra, “It was a good game but we still face the problem of players not turning up for training.

“We still have a lot to work to do before our next game. Our main focus is to develop the players and improve in each game.”

Nasinu coach Richard Lal, “It was a good game but it could have been controlled properly. I am happy with the how the boys performed.”
