We were undone from first whistle: Cotter

Vodafone Flying Fijians Coach Vern Cotter says they were undone from the first whistle and just could not find their rhythm in their 32-18 loss to Australia A in Round 2 of the Pacific Nations Cup in Lautoka today.

Expressing his disappointment in the post match interview, Cotter said the team's performance was not what he and many expected from a quality side.

“Australia did their job, and today was really disappointing for us."

“Any advantage that we had last week, we could not have today and we struggled.

“The start of the game reflected the whole game, we lost possession, couldn’t find the touch, we were our own worst enemies.”

He added they need to dig deep before taking on leaders Samoa in the third and final fixture of the championship next Saturday in Lautoka.
