Henderson we have to earn the right to win

Head coach Andrew Henderson says his side still need to earn the right to win games following their 24-8 victory over Featherstone Rovers on Good Friday.

In a close first half the Broncos led 6-4 at the break but pulled away in the second half to open up a 24-4 lead going into the final few minutes before a consolation try from the home side. Tries from Brad Dwyer, Oscar Thomas and Rhys Williams (2) were improved by four conversion from Wes Naiqama. The win moves the Broncos up to fifth in the table.

“Our focus now is to do a job on Monday and doing the best job we possibly can do because we can’t be complacent of the back of that (win),” said Henderson. “We’ve had two good results but it’s only going to get tougher and we haven’t earned the right yet to be thinking we can just turn up and win games, we’re nowhere near that and we should never be that way.”

“I’m really looking forward to the opportunity that will be presented on Monday  back at home in front of our fans as well, it’s going to be good celebrating Easter it should make for a good occasion we’ve got to make sure we get our job done too.”

Henderson praised one through to 17 after the match and heaped particular plaudits on Rhys Lovegrove, who played at prop, and Elliot Minchella, who was making his debut.

“I thought there were some really big performances tonight, Rhys Lovegrove once again was outstanding in the middle for us, he almost done the 80 minutes. Elliot Minchella on his debut tonight was fantastic, he really impressed me the way he slotted in. I could compliment 1-17 as they all contributed well but those two definitely stood out tonight.”
