"We are happy with our win and the team spirit is high at the moment," said Marum.
He said there is still a lot of room for improvement in defence and indicated that their new halves combination of Watson Boas and Wartovo Puara Jr guided their attack well to win the game.
When asked about maintaining the current line-up for this weekend’s game, Marum said it will all be determined by how well the players recover from minor injuries, suspension and their efforts during training.
Boas said there was a bit of pressure at the start but as soon they completed their sets well, his combination with Puara Jr grew with confidence.
Warren Glare was also pleased to take up the role in the dummy half, a position that he isn’t new to, despite starting this year in the second-row.
"I was a bit nervous at first but as soon as the game’s momentum kicked in, everything just fell in line, especially in distributing the ball to the forwards and also the backs," added Glare.
Puara Jr said their win was a result of a good team effort and having to improve in their offence.
