Hawks coach Michael Quinn sighted Luke Snedden, Foreman, Jason Smith and Luke Stanton as his best on the day.

“You take the points, don’t you”, said Quinn when reflecting on the match.

“At times we tend to fall into bad habits and I’d like to see us play more to our standards rather than being dragged down by the state of the match”, he said.
