The full-back was the hero on Gavin Hunt's debut as he bagged a brace to help the Soweto giants claim a 2-1 win in the MTN8 quarter-finals on Sunday night.

Sasman revealed that the full-backs were told to alternate going forward, rather than both himself and Reeve Frosler going up at the same time.

"It was a hard-fought win. We went 1-0 down. The team showed character and we got the result," told SuperSport after the game.

"I think the philosophy did change in the second-half. Myself and Reeve [Frosler], we both went up at the same time. And when we went in at half-time, they said we should alternate and it worked and we preserved our energy and got the three points.

"We practice during the week. Gavin gave us a good teamtalk, set-pieces, planned out and we executed it well. And thanks to the almighty for the two goals.

"I think it's a great achievement coming back from the setback in the league. You know, we threw it away in the last game. But yes, it's a good beginning to the season and we'll take it from here."
