Robbo the consummate team man

TROY ROBINSON may not have scored any points in Saturday night's 105-90 win against Toowoomba.

But for that he made up with his physical presence in a game which demanded it.

Robinson boxed out the bigger Toowoomba opponents and created screens that allowed the likes of Ray Willis and the Allen brother to do their thing.

"It was nice and physical at the start, but we were able to run in the second half," Robinson said.

"I just scrap and do my role."

Robinson admitted that his team did not have the respect for Aron Pantano, whose three-point shooting was a treat in the first half.

"We played off him in the first half but we made a concerted effort to stop him in the second half," Robinson said.

Coach Brian Waters said the win was on the back of hard work.

"All the stuff we worked on at practice, we executed it well," Waters said.

However he admitted his team allowed too many easy baskets.

"Defence is something we need to work on," the coach added.
