Despite one win and one draw from 15 games, outgoing head coach Mark Hammett on Monday praised the Sunwolves organization for a successful first season in Super Rugby.
“We were green, new to Super Rugby, excited, anxious,” Hammett told a press conference at the Japan Rugby Football Union two days after wrapping up the season in South Africa. “We’ve now become experienced. We’re now respected as a Super Rugby team. For me, we had many more wins than what was in those 80 minutes.
