Kelly told ITV Sport: ‘I actually watched Bryony and thought that was my game plan.

‘His jumping is so good i could let him roll. my question mark was whether he could stay, i wasn’t in a position to pull down the back to get a breather in him.

‘He jumps and jumps and jumps, he is a monster. He will go on from this.’
