Winning ways are proving elusive
ROCHDALE Hornets head coach Alan Kilshaw says it feels like his side don’t know how to win a game at the moment following their 26-12 defeat to Batley Bulldogs on Saturday.
It looked like Hornets could have earned the win when they were leading heading into the final 10 minutes of the match, but Batley turned things around in the final 10 minutes to come out on top and condemn their opponents to defeat.
Kilshaw was frustrated that his side couldn’t hold on, and thinks that they only have themselves to blame after suffering the loss.
“It was similar circumstances to a lot of our other defeats. We had 43 per cent completion rate in the second half, and you wouldn’t win an under 8s game with that,” he said.
“I don’t know if it’s because we’re fragile mentality, but we don’t know how to win a game at the moment.
“In the last two weeks we’ve scored some incredible tries, but then it’s our own downfall again.
“For the majority of the match we defended quite well, but it was only a matter of time before Batley scored because we gave them enough opportunities to do it.”
