I WAS very pleased last week with both the result and the defensive performance against Keighley Cougars.

We scored plenty of points too and that’s brought the points difference back with York City Knights.

As I said, defensively we were very good but again, we have had a period of the game, after we had gone 10-0 in front, where we didn’t complete a set for 18 minutes and all we did was invite Keighley to attack our line.

It was good that we repelled their attack, but we won’t be able to do that against every team every week, so we have got to smarten ourselves up when we are bringing the ball away from our own end.

That is something we are going to have to look at, both from a skill wise base and also structurally.

We certainly scored some tries on our left edge with both Ethan Ryan and Tuoyo Egodo claiming hat-tricks. They are both very good strike players, are a handful with ball in hand and have this great ability to catch the ball when it’s put in the air, whether from Joe Keyes or Jordan Lilley’s kicks.

They certainly are strike weapons, but I think we have a lot of strike players; both half-backs ask plenty of questions.

Jordan Lilley busted and off loaded and created a try and Joe Keyes scored a try with his running game as well as creating one for Elliot Minchella.

I was pleased with the tries we scored and delighted with the defence but coming out of our own end we have got to be better.

This week we have another long trip to Llanelli to take on West Wales Raiders.

This division is tough for that and it’s one of the posers we have been given in this league with the amount of travel.

Hopefully we have come up with the right system to enable us to get out on the field tomorrow and give a really good performance, win the game and also post a very good scoreline to heap the pressure on York.

Knights are coping with that pressure at the moment and they had a great win at Workington but they have a tough game against Oldham, as we have the week after and we need to keep the pressure on them.

We are still playing week to week as we are not nearer knowing any proposed structural changes to the competition for next season.

It’s like a Carry On film and we will just Carry On Regardless.

We will try to knock these last three games off, try and get the wins and we’ll see where we are then.

If we have to get into the Championship through the play-offs then so be it, but if we are, shall we say, ‘Falsely promoted’, then Bradford were ‘Falsely relegated at the end of last season and if that happens then we won’t bat an eyelid.
