Dewsbury Rams stand off/scrum half Simon Brown is staying positive despite a bad run of results.
The Rams lost both games over Easter, losing to Batley and Leigh. However Lee Greenwood’s men will be looking to get back on track this weekend away at Widnes.
On that upcoming game and looking back on the Easter period, Brown said: “We are going through a tough time but we know we can compete with any team and we need to start believing that we can as a team.
“There are a lot of changes at the club in the way people think and the way the coaching staff are going about their business.
“I was disappointed not to play Friday and also watching with the result as this is biggest game of the year or one of them against Batley, so the boys were gutted on how they performed.
“Leigh was a tough one some boys were battered and bruised we just did too much defending.
“I think it’s a bit of smartness and we need some stability in what we’re doing as a team. We are competing for parts of games but we need to start competing for longer parts in games in order to get the wins.”
On this weekend against Widnes Brown knows it will be a tough test, however insists that the Rams will be going there to really challenge the Vikings.
He said ahead of the game: “I expect to go to Widnes and challenge them and have the shackles taken off ourselves as a team and test one of the best teams in the league.
“The key to playing good teams is putting it all on the line from an effort and attitude point of view, the main things are completion rate, low penalty count etc…”
“I just want the fans at the end of the game to applaud us for the effort we have gave and we won’t be far off.”
Finally Brown was delighted to get over the try line against Leigh despite the defeat. He also wants to get back to winning ways for everyone at the club.
The 29 year old commented: “It is always a delight to score as I don’t get many so it was great to grab a try and help the team.
“As a more experienced player I want to help the team and get back to winning ways not only for the team and for myself but for the fans of Dewsbury Rams.”
