St. Jago’s coach Danny Hawthorne said they are in a very good position to win, but he wants more at GC Foster College on Saturday.
“The possibilities are great,” were Danny Hawthorne’s first words. However, he continued: “I’m not just into just winning that (Grand Prix), I am trying to get the guys to maximize their performances and Saturday is just another day where we will come out and showcase what we are made of and hope that is an improvement for the greater days, which is Champs.”
