Henderson names side to take on Eagles

Andrew Henderson has named his 19 man squad to travel to Belle Vue on Sunday, taking on Sheffield Eagles in round eight of the Kingstone Press Championship.

“We are very much looking forward to playing Sheffield and building on the good work from last week. Our good attitude, energy, desire and togetherness which we showed last week will be needed again,” said Henderson.

“There were plenty of positives and improvement on the field in the Rochdale game. I felt the team started brilliantly in the opening ten minutes, and finished the game extremely well demonstrating a lot of patience, discipline, and desire.

“We have been guilty of putting ourselves under a lot of pressure with errors and poor discipline in these early rounds. However, I was pleased to see that we started strong and even when we were put under pressure for a spell, and we didn’t compound our position as we have done previously.

“We showed great character and resolve defensively, as well as great patience and discipline to score 28 unanswered points and keep them scoreless for the last 60 minutes.

“Our aim this week is to keep building on our performance and ensure we are consistently better for longer periods in the game, which I’m sure we will.”
