Good result, but not good enough, it is a shame that Peter, Simon and Nathan let us down tonight, the rest of the team done well. Peter's excuse will be still suffering from his injury, Simon trying to hard and Nathan no one fell off so was not able to pick up a point . Hopefully might be a better result tomorrow ?
