Eric Tinkler on his team

What Rose Hill does well: “We’re small, but we’ve got speed. That’s our strength - our speed and athleticism. We’re a lot quicker than we were last year.”

What has to improve: “We don’t have a lot of guys on the team, so we’re going to have to figure out how to keep up the intensity all year. We know we’re going to face adversity, so we’re going to have to really stay together and keep each other accountable.”
