GEOFF Toovey believes the Bulls are still playing for each other as they finish a troubled season with a late run.

His side scrapped to a 16-12 victory at Dewsbury Rams yesterday to make it four wins out of five.

Tries from Cory Aston, Ross Peltier and Lee Smith earned the points from the final away game of the campaign.

"There were a lot of mistakes by both sides but I'm pleased with the win," said Toovey.

"I thought we played particularly well first half. They got one soft try off a kick but I was happy to go in 12-12 at half-time.

"It got a bit scrappy and then when we got in front, we made some costly errors which nearly lost us the match as well. It kept putting us under pressure, which was disappointing.

"The pleasing thing is that they are playing for each other in this last month or six weeks. It wasn't pretty but they are playing as a team and hanging in there.

"I'm happy for the fans who turned up again and showed their grit in the pretty horrible conditions."

The blustery wind at the Tetley's Stadium made for a mistake-ridden encounter – but Joe Keyes underlined his promise in his half-back partnership with Cory Aston.

Toovey said: "He controlled the ball in the second half and his kicking game was quite good. He kept Dewsbury down their end with some nice touches of the ball.

"But again it was the simple errors that could have cost us at the end. There were a lot of dropped balls and three or four penalties I thought were pretty tough against us as well.

"There were some very subjective penalties and I would have liked to have got a couple of those in the second half. But we scraped and scrapped the win out, so we've got to be pleased."

Toovey also confirmed that centre Ross Oakes could be in contention for next Sunday's season finale against Rochdale at Odsal after returning to training.

The Bulls coach said: "There is a chance. He trained with us late last week. If we can find a spot for him, then hopefully he'll be able to play.

"It's been well documented how tough this season has been for everyone and to go out on a high would be good.

"We've done that four of the last five weeks, so to finish at home with a win would be ideal."
