Composure is important this finals series as many matches throughout the regular season were tight ones and the team that stays the calmest under pressure will get through when the pressure is at it’s highest.

Also important is remembering that a team is like a machine, Every player is important and is needed otherwise the machine stops working, Individual brilliance is nice to see from a spectators point of view but a team that has it’s players playing their roles as planned usually wins.

Rovers Talk will be back on Sunday afternoon with all the results for you to read and hopefully enjoy.
