Now its four from fourDate published: Monday, April 27, 2015
SCOTT Naylor, a hard man to please, wasn’t entirely satisfied with his side’s performance in the nine-try drubbing they inflicted on London Skolars.
“We scored some nice tries, played some good rugby and basically did a job on London,” said the Roughyeds boss, whose side tops the League One table with four wins from four outings.
“I have to say, however, that I was not too impressed with the performance of the team as a whole.
“As head coach I look at things in a much different way to a lot of people.
“I look at things like intensity, contact in the tackle, work off the ball and whether players are pushing through in support even when they realise they probably won’t get the ball.
“There wasn’t a lot of those qualities in our rugby today.
“We were always confident we would win, but the overall level of performance needs to be lifted because we have some very tough games coming up.
“We need to be playing at a higher level NOW because you can’t just up the ante with a flick of a switch when the tougher challenges kick in.
“I must stress that some of my players today gave me 100 per cent, but not all of them.”
Naylor praised the efforts of two youngsters who have only come into the squad this year — Tom Dempsey and Richard Joy.
He said: “They both did very well.
“I wanted to give Tom a full game, his first at this level, and he came through well, as did Richard .
“It’s nice to know that a couple of young boys who came up through the reserves have the ability to hold their own at the next step up.”
