KC Praises Professionalism

KEIRON Cunningham praised his side’s professional performance after they beat Warrington 31-6.

“We were really patient,” he said after the game, “it was probably the best first half of rugby we have played for a couple of years.

“It was no coincidence that we put our seven back out there and produced that. The weight of possession told in the end; we stuck at it, got opportunities and took them. We scored three good tries.

“We didn’t have the greatest start to the second half but we regrouped. We were playing a cornered animal in Warrington and knew they would come out and play and play really quick. We regrouped really well and got back to the job, restarted the half and it was a patient performance.”

He continued: “Zeb Taia was really threatening on the left edge and Mark Percival has not had as much ball in his life. You have to get your best players the ball, we seem to be doing that and Percy is having a field day. I’m also pleased for Adam Swift. He had it tough for the first couple of weeks but has worked hard and over the last couple of weeks has been brilliant. He took his tries well.

“Matty (Smith) got man of the match after playing his first game in two-and-a-half months. The way he manages himself in the dressing room before he goes out onto the field is impressive, as is how he performs in training.

“Good players make other players better and we should only improve now.

“We have a lot of potential. Jonny Lomax isn’t far away and Tommy Makinson is playing well as are the outside backs and middles.

“We have to kick on and improve further now.

“It is a long old season and now we have to get ready for Salford.

“If we keep putting in the performances then you get what you deserve.

“We have won two games in a row so we will enjoy the moment, but tomorrow we’re back to hard work and looking at Salford.”
