Round Up with Carl Hall

Round Up with Carl Hall

12th June 2014

Doncaster RLFC chief executive Carl Hall spoke to the official website about the form of Paul Cooke’s side.

Hall was pleased with last weekend’s victory at Barrow Raiders, admitting he was not looking forward to the prospect of heading to Craven Park.

He said: “The game against Barrow was very pleasing, it was certainly a game I was worried about because it is a tough place to go.

“The game was 6-10 right up until 70 minutes, we had to hang in there, but I thought we controlled the game from start to finish.

“It was a game I was concerned about but to win how we did in the end was really pleasing, credit to the lads, they played some really controlled rugby.”

This weekend the Dons head to Featherstone Rovers, who sit one place above Doncaster in the Kingstone Press Championship in second place.

The Dons ran out 22-16 winners against Rovers back March at the Keepmoat Stadium, but since then Featherstone have had a takeover and large change in staff on and off the field.

Hall however insists Doncaster will be up for the challenge come Sunday.

“We can go there with some confidence, but we can also go there knowing that they have made statements that they are not going to lose for the rest of the year,” said Hall.

“We will go there and enjoy ourselves, we are not supposed to win according to them so we will see what comes of that.

“They have had a big change of personnel, so you never know what can happen, have they gelled yet?  Or not? We don’t know. 

“Doncaster Rugby League are a team and we will go there and give a good account of ourselves and get stuck into them, we don’t fear anybody.

“We are looking forward to it, they are the big boys going for the top two, so we will see what happens.”
