Team Leader Andy Wood thought the squads performance throughout their entire stay in Australia was highly commendable,
'The team have had to cope with a really tough schedule and fought hard throughout the week, its great that they have rounded off the week with some medals...The players will take a huge amount of knowledge back home with them and hoepfully be able to utilise what they have learnt and experienced in the future.'
