Naylor delighted with 'brilliant' Roughyeds

AS one would expect, Scott Naylor was hugely satisfied with the Roughyeds’ all-round show in a 32-12 win against Doncaster at the Vestacare Stadium.

Before kick-off, injured non-playing prop Jack Spencer described this game as “massive to both clubs”.

Roughyeds had to win to keep hold of third place and victory never looked in doubt.

Said Naylor:

“It was a great team performance. One to 17 were awesome.

“It was a very important game for both clubs in the context of league placings and the season as a whole and it was probably our best all-round performance of the season so far.

“We had a dodgy spell of about ten to 15 minutes in the second half, but apart from that we were brilliant.

“We were aggressive and determined in everything we did and our defence was outstanding.

“They scored one try from close range and another from a long kick downfield in the last minute but for most of the game we were definitely in control.

“It’s a great day for our club and also for our chairman. We hope it will help his recovery.

“We must now kick-on, keep working hard and keep improving and if we do that we should be in the mix at the end of the season.”

His reference to club chairman Chris Hamilton was a reminder that the club’s owner is recovering and recuperating after major heart surgery last Tuesday.
