The DEX sports quotes of the week

Each week we pull together some of the best quotes from our sport section in the week that was. Here's this weeks handful: 

"It's hard for Verity to sit on the sidelines. She's like a caged lion." - GNA president Cathy Walls on unused Queensland Firebirds grand final substitute Verity Simmons.

"There is no doubt in my mind that he is the best horse to have raced on the Grafton track in its history." - CRJC executive officer Michael Beattie on Takeover Target.

"It would be lovely to win back to back Ramornie's." - Trainer Rodney Northam on 2014 winner Big Money returning to Grafton.

"The Ramornie is a great race. It's well respected and carries a big badge as far as I'm concerned." - Sydney trainer Peter Snowden.

"It was quite a polished team performance. We were clinical and scored some great tries." - South Grafton Rebels coach Dallas Waters on the 78-16 win over Macksville.

"I expect it to be a cracker. Sort of like NSW v QLD, mate against mate." - Maclean High coach Nathan White on the DEX Shield final.
