Eaton, whose side lost 28-26 at Barrow on Sunday, said: “Our composure with the ball is affecting our defence.
“We’re conceding tries on the back of poor ball control. We’re scoring enough points to win games, but if you’re making errors in your own half you’re giving teams ammunition.
“If we can maintain possession better, we’ll probably defend better. That’s our challenge for the rest of the season.”
Coach Paul Rowley said: “We’re entering a tough period of four fixtures – against Hunslet, Halifax, Swinton and Sheffield – in 12 days, so we need to be strong both mentally and physically.
“We’ll give Hunslet plenty of respect because we know their capabilities, but we also know what we’re capable of.”
