After the match captain Hayley Matthews applauded the efforts by the four U19 players who were part of the playing eleven today, saying "It was really good to see how the U19s played today.

We are still missing the experience of Stafanie Taylor and Chinelle Henry and it's been a pretty tough tournament for us when it comes to results but we have better days to look forward too."
