Brown: Pleased With Hour

NATHAN Brown was pleased with the opening hour of the 46-22 win over Bradford on Friday.

His side ran in eight tries as they maintained their top of the table position.

“After the first 60 minutes we were quite happy as we had a lot of consistent contributions,” he said. “But then for 15 minutes we were really not where we need to be.

“At 40-12 we needed to turn the game back in our favour through doing the basic things well but we probably played where we are at at the moment.

“That is, we aren’t consistent for a full 80 minute period.

“This time last week we had different players who had parts of their game that let the team down and this week it was other players. We need 17 players who are contributing for the full 80 minutes or for a fair chunk.

“But we have to take satisfaction from the win and to lead 40-0 after 60 minutes. But if we want to get to where we want to be then we have to be able to turn a game back our way like we did against Wigan.

“We didn’t rebuild the arm wrestle and we have to improve on that.”

Brown says Adam Swift had his best game since returning from injury whilst Mark Percival, Willie Manu and Mose Masoe are improving too.

He was also pleased that Anthony Laffranchi and Kyle Amor made their returns from injury.

“Paul Wellens was consistent too,”he continued. “He is one of the best competitors in the squad and fights for everything. He is a player that you love to coach and have in your team.

“He rarely has a bad day and always puts his body on the line. That is why he is important and such a good leader. We need 17 players who want to scrap for everything.”
