FEATHERSTONE ROVERS head coach Ryan Carr stressed there is more improvement to come from his side, after their victory in Sunday’s Betfred Championship home opener against Batley Bulldogs.
Rovers impressed in front of a vocal home crowd, treating them to a five-try haul in the second-half.
Carr said: “I’m proud of the way the boys defended and kept turning up for each other. That was a high priority for us today.
“It was good to see the boys having fun, but defensively is why we got the opportunities to do that.
“We need to make sure that each week we keep working harder. We’ve got more improvement as a squad in coming together."
Carr also commented on the squad at his disposal, which was strengthened by the signings of Jack Ormondroyd and Josh Walters in the week building up to the game.
“They’re such good people to work with each day. I love coming to work and training. I’m very fortunate to have a good playing group,” he said.
Featherstone’s attention will now turn to their trip to face Leigh Centurions.
Carr said: “It’ll be a tough match. They’re a quality club and squad.
“We’ll go back to the drawing board tomorrow and back to work. We’ll keep building and coming together.”
Featherstone Rovers vs Leigh Centurions kicks-off at 3pm on Sunday 17th February at Leigh Sports Village. Tickets for the match are available both online and from the Rovers Superstore.
