MATCH QUOTES

"I got hit by a couple of batteries in the warm-up which wasn't a problem, but during the game I wanted to make the referee aware that I was getting pelted with cigarette lighters. โ€But when the referee showed me a yellow card I thought it was a bit harsh. To book me encouraged the crowd to throw more things." Mark Bosnich.
