‘It was a very good team performance. They ask you a lot of questions and we need to have the answers.
‘Everyone was very brave and everyone was sharp. It is a six-point game because the others lose. The race is on, there are still 11 games to go.
‘We go step by step. We can never rest and never celebrate, there is no time.’
