Big win -- okay performance.

​SCOTT Naylor was pleased with the 58-6 win against Coventry Bears . . . but not entirely happy with the level of performance.

It was okay,” he said. “I would give it six out of ten.

Despite ten tries and a big score, Roughyeds made hard work of it at times and were guilty of a few lapses that some opponents would punish heavily.

Said Naylor:

“We still need to do a lot of improving before our next two games against York and Bradford.

“You can get away with mistakes against some teams, but not against the top two sides in our division.

“That was exactly why we lost at Newcastle, where we invited them back into the game.

“It’s not a major problem, nor is it a technical one. It’s stuff we can fix up, but we have to do it before next week and then hopefully we’ll move forward in terms of play-off qualification.

“A win’s a win ! But we’ll need to play a lot better in the next couple of weeks.”

Naylor said his side got through without injury and the only doubt for the game against table-topping York on Sunday would be full-back Kyran Johnson, who missed the Coventry game with a damaged shoulder and AC joint.
