We were very proud to be a Kiwi.
For the Grand Finals we played a very tough game against

Probably the most aggresive game

believed we could win it !
The support we got from everyone was off the charts.

Pacers Family for your support
and for helping me achieve this.
The experience was one I will never forget.
