Speaking on behalf of the Waifs Rupert Cox commented " they can count themselves very lucky as they made it through to the next round by the barest of margins! Lucky, lucky Waifs! The Waifs had controlled most of the game, and in fairness to the OEs they fought very hard throughout the afternoon and can count themselves very unfortunate"
