Henderson’s 19 prepared for Halifax

Andrew Henderson’s side travel to the MBi Shay this weekend, taking on Halifax in round six of the Kingstone Press Championship.

With four wins from five under their belt, Henderson says his changed squad is looking forward to another challenge.

“I think the team is in a good place at the moment – we are starting to come together and everyone is working hard to improve and keep moving forward.

“This will be our toughest away fixture so far this season. Halifax will certainly challenge us and ask a lot of questions of our defence. They are a skillful and attack minded team.

“I have been pleased with our defensive attitude recently and our overall defence has improved in the last two games. However, we will have to maintain those standards and work better defensively this week to limit their opportunities.

“Everyone is excited by the challenge this weekend but also the opportunity. I’m certain the 17 selected will be determined to earn another win away from home.”
