Quote of the Week:
“They’re [Washington are] on a really good run right now, unbeaten all season. It was a tough game for us [last time], we reviewed and some of the goals are exceptional. And we’ll be aware of that. I think it’ll be two different teams on the day, from what we saw in the Challenge Cup. But we’re on a good run as well. So we have to be mindful of them and they have to be mindful of us. We’re at home, we’re in front of our own fans and we’re looking to continue this momentum that we’ve put together.” -- Head Coach Seb Hines
