MOOY ON THE WIN

"It was a good result, it was what we wanted, to win.

"We played some good stuff at times. It was a good day."

"We didn’t expect it but they got away with it [playing balls over the top of Australia’s defence].

"Some of their goals were great play, to be fair. Lovely one touch passing moves.

"But we’ll learn from it. We’ll look at the video and learn from what went wrong."
