“As a coach, I couldn’t ask for more from any of them.

“A few decisions I must say I didn’t agree with, but I unfortunately do not make the choice of who wins!

“Also, a big shout out to all the support.

“I know how long of a day it is, I feel it too.

“All the waiting around and the massive drive, but these are moments you will never forget and memories you will cherish forever.
