Dewsbury Rams head coach Lee Greenwood has given his thoughts to the media following the defeat to Sheffield on Sunday.
He said of the 13-16 defeat: “That is definitely three home games and an away game we should have won now. All have been the same where we have been in the lead and let it slip.
“We were two scores in front against Sheffield, and going down to 10 men didn’t help. However some of the mistakes we made weren’t good. We wanted to be hard to beat and we are doing that, but now we need to get over the line in these games.
“We worked hard over pre-season and we think we are a fit bunch, we make most of our changes in second half of games. I don’t think it’s a fitness thing with us, it is just a mentality one and that takes time to change but it’ll come.
“As a group we don’t think we are too far off its just that mentality change in getting these games over the line. We will look at what we do, players will look at what they do and we will come up with an answer together. If we can be like this all season then there will be frustrations but within that with the law of averages you’d like to think we’ll get over the line in games.”
One player that Greenwood did give praise to was 18 year old Owen Trout. On loan from Leeds and the brother of Rams player Kyle. Greenwood believes Trout has a bright future in the game.
He said: “We played him in the centres, and some of his involvement was really good. I thought he did well there, it was a great bit of play to set one of the tries up.
“He has got a good future in the game, obviously he is 18 years old and he’s played in Championship rugby against men against Sheffield and Halifax. I’d be surprised if he doesn’t go on to have a good Super League career and if we can help him on his way then great.”
