Dewsbury Rams head coach Lee Greenwood was disappointed with his side’s defeat to Bradford Bulls, insisting that his team can be a lot better.
The Bulls won 20-12 on the afternoon with ex-Rams player Dalton Grant scoring two tries to help Bradford get the two points.
On the defeat head coach Greenwood said: “It is always tough when you don’t prepare properly and don’t have all your team right on it. We probably were slight underdogs coming into this.
“I think as a team we are quite capable of coming here and getting a result and we showed that in patches but we didn’t quite do enough.
“I certainly aren’t happy with coming and just producing a performance like that, leaving the result aside, I know we can do a lot better.
“I am changing things here at the club, we train properly and we are changing how we want the team to play. It probably has been a culture shock to a large number of people who were either at the club previously or have come from other clubs. We want to train at an intensity that you would play to in a game.
“Some guys struggle with that a little, some will get better over time and some may never get used to it, I am a firm believer that you play how you train.
“For me and I am sure if you asked the players they would say the same, we haven’t been at our best against Bradford and we only lost by eight points, and at a place like Bradford if some other teams would have played like us they may have been beaten by more. We have been sort of competitive without really bringing everything we have.
“When we do play like we know we can we can be such a good team, maybe there is just a small mental block.”
