Duffield credits Lyon for improvement

“Ross is a demanding perfectionist coach,” he said.

“He has a photographic memory, he knows what he wants and how to get it.”

Mundy said Lyon was supportive of players’ off-field endeavors, as much as their football.

“Ross is always keen for us to pursue outside interests such as university or whatever it may be,” he said.

“He always plans our football program around our examines or work and is very flexible.”
