“Ja, Rob, it’s looking good,” Barker said in the post match press conference.
“Obviously, we’ve had a fantastic start.
“We have as many wins in the league now that we had the whole of last season.
“To go now 13 games unbeaten, if you include the four from last season, we are in a good space, we’re in a good position.
“I always felt that after 9, 10 games, it would be a good barometer to see where we are as a team. “
So, you know, we are doing well. It’s important that we remain however humble and, continue to work hard and to continue just building our belief, building our confidence as as a team.”
