But the 20-year-old was quick to praise his team-mates as the real heroes in the rain.
"We lost a lot of games by one score or less last season, but we saw a bit of grit and determination to really pull the result out of the bag," he said.
"Conditions weren't great, we were hoping when we woke up it would be nice and dry and we would be able to throw the ball around a bit but it hasn't transpired that way.
"We're thrilled to get the result but there is a lot to work on certainly. I missed a couple of kicks, but all in all I am relatively happy. We have come away with a result and that is the important thing."
