Player of the Match Mitchell Marsh said, “A frustrating loss. It took me a couple games to get rolling. Had that lovely alliance with Salt, but not enough to cross the finish line. It all came down to setting the limits and exerting pressure. There were undoubtedly many advantages to today. We have had some bad luck, but we still believe this competition has a long way to go. It’s time to begin winning some.
