Centurions must eradicate the errors
PAUL Rowley says Leigh Centurions are working hard on delivering consistent rugby.
A four-match winning sequence came to a shuddering halt at the hands of Sheffield Eagles at the weekend but the team have dusted themselves down in preparation for a visit to Dewsbury on Sunday.
He also said his men should not dwell on the disappointment of the 40-18 home loss to the champions.
“Sheffield’s first-half performance was probably as good as they will do all year,” he said.
“They had 26 sets to our 16, and one out of 16 was on their line.
“Those stats are pretty one-sided. We usually speak about building pressure and getting to have a bit of fun at the end of the game and basically we were given some of our own medicine at the weekend.
“I don’t think there was any shortage of bravery or toughness in our side but certainly some poor individual errors cost us collectively. I think we just need to get on with what we do well. We don’t want anyone to drop their heads, be sad or dwell.
“Obviously we need to work on the things that we did worse and we need to eradicate some of those unforced errors.
“If we take those out of the game, we should be good from week to week, but it’s a lean competition now where everyone is pretty equal. There are no givens, it’s unpredictable and every game is tough.
“There are plenty of things that I’ve seen on video where the previous week we executed plays better, we put the pass on because we are confident but this week we didn’t.
"I have to get to the root of why, and that is part of us becoming consistent. We’ll work on that and we’ll all work hard together.”
