Rowe’s Thoughts

"They are having a similar trajectory to is. We won't be taking them likely; we never do. I think it will be our toughest test yet. It's a tasty fixture and it's going to be a good game.

"They are a team full of confidence. They score a lot and also concede a few. It will be a game to see who can input their style more."
