We have to fill that Gap that we have in the in terms of size and with knowing Series titles to their name the reigning Champions clearly win their fair share of the ball you feeling This is a very strong team. They don't do it all the time. They know when to do it. That's the different of us and when you lose the ball, that's it. You're finished with the white Mickelson has got to finish Zealand.
