VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM
Ahead of the game Western Storm Head Coach, Mark O’Leary said: “Although they have yet to gain a point, we certainly won’t be underestimating them. They’ve got some young and exciting players and our aim will be to make sure that we win this game and finish second in the table.
“It’s the last game of the season and I know that the players want to go out there, show what they can do and finish on a high.
“Obviously, we’re disappointed not to have made the final because our aim was to qualify. Having said that, I’m pleased with how the team has performed and I’m really excited by the potential that there is within the squad and in the region as a whole.”
