ORANGE City Lions captain Josh Maley was full of praise for his side's defensive resolve after their 25-19 Blowes Clothing Cup win on Saturday.

The two-times defending champions held out a spirited Platypi's forward pack for the last ten minutes of the game at Pride Park, cementing their place in the competition's top three in the process.

Maley's counterpart James King was far from disheartened with the loss, believing the performance shows their 2014 premiership credentials.
