Jones hails Scarboro’ effort in Goole win


Scarboroug­h RUFC head coach Matty Jones has reflected on his side’s comfortabl­e victory against Goole on Saturday, writes Charlie Hopper.

They ran out 40-19 winners and Jones was delighted with the overall performanc­e, but admitted that ‘rugby was the real winner’.

“The performanc­e wasn’t the main thing for us and we knew that rugby was the real winner,” he said.

“Everyone has been working really hard for the last few months and the lads put a lot of effort in during the game.

“We’ve got a few young lads and a couple of new lads so it was a joy to see them all fit in well and the team play for each other.”

Seeing the team in a competitiv­e environmen­t was pleasing for Kiwi Jones, who now must prepare his squad for a home fixture against Malton & Norton on Friday night.

He added: “It’ll be a real battle out on the field, but both clubs have huge respect for each other and I’m hopeful that we’ll let the rugby do the talking.

“The game will be another step up for some of the younger lads and they’ll be testing themselves in a local derby which is huge.”
