“Get into the top eight, and then with the current format it gives us a really good opportunity where if you win one game in the quarter-final then you’re playing for a medal,” said Bundy.
“We want to play the top six countries in the world and we want to play them at our convenience. The group that went to the Rio Olympics were the younger group and now that group is just maturing a lot more, so it’s coming in to the top of our peak.” Bundy said.
