The boys are doing a lot of good things — Naylor
Date published: 02 June 2014
SOMEBODY has to be doing something right when the boss is happy with his staff and their achievements.
Happy? “More than that. The lads are playing for the shirt and it’s a pleasure to be working with them right now,” enthused Scott Naylor after his young Oldham outfit saw off London Skolars in their fourth win in a row, unbeaten home record intact.
The signs are that Naylor’s men are starting to look as resilient and well organised as they were last year.
The Oldham coach went on: “The result was what we wanted, obviously, but I was also happy with the level of performance and the fact that lots of things we have worked on in training are now being used successfully when it matters. The boys are doing a lot of good things, and it’s nice to see.
“We are playing good rugby, looking confident and playing in a way that’s a little bit more expansive.
“We are a very young team and we still have a lot of improvement in us, but we are getting better, and playing better rugby, as we go along.
“I’m trying to get us playing consistently in a certain way and we are starting to get close to it.
“It’s good to see the backs starting to assert themselves and play quality rugby.
“The forwards are key to everything we do, but the backs are starting to look equally as impressive, and I’m really happy about that.
Centre David Cookson, whose try on the stroke of half-time gave Roughyeds a 22-10 interval lead, received the Kingstone Press magic moment award, while two-try winger Mo Agoro walked off with the club’s official man-of-the-match award.
