Iti te kupu, engari he nui te kōrero a Trotter.

E ai ki tana kaiako a Glenn Brightwell, “I always knew early on if there was anyone who could deliver a knockout shot it would be Steph. I didn't think it would be this early but credit to her for going to the game plan in the knock outs.”

E toru marama noa iho i a e whakangūngū ana. E ai ki tōna kaiako ki a Glenn Brightwell i mōhio tūtūru ia i reira ōna pūkenga. Heoi i roto i ngā tau rua tekau e mahi mekemeke ana, kāre rawa i kitea he wikitōria māreikura pēnei.

“As far as all the people I know and official alike and other coaches, never. Never happened. Not saying it hasn't, but it's that rare. Yeah so very early on just that power is uncanny and it's a gift she's got and hopefully she will use it and get stared in the right direction and go well.”

He taone iti a Ōtorohanga heoi he rongonui mo ana kaimekemeke pēnei i a Turanga Brown. E ai kia Glenn i kaha akona e Stephanie mai i ngā kiriata mekemeke o Turanga.

“Turanga Brown was our NZ Champ in 2006, he's a southpore just like Stephanie and it was the same thing he had extreme power and he delivered a really impressive KO blow. She watched that footage about 6-7 times. Funny thing was that was second round, very similar shot, very similar time.”
