COACH SKINNER’S ASSESSMENT:
Chiltern were weak, but we did not know that at the beginning and we started very positively, particularly in defence. And once we had established that we were dominant we never let up. And we were very good. We never showboated or became complacent or showed any disrespect. Everyone just played hard from start to finish. It was important to maintain that tempo ahead of next week’s game. The 3 defensive systems we used were all executed well and it was nice to try something different with the 1-3-1. With such good pressure defensively it was not surprising that our offence was dominated by fast breaks and it was good to see that it was usually 3 or 4 on the break rather than just 1 or 2. It was a thoroughly impressive performance.
