Holt could make Workington bow

Stewart Rhodes remains “a week or two” away from contention, according to Town coach Gary Charlton.

But Darren Holt could be included in Workington’s line up to face Doncaster. “He’s come on leaps and bounds in training over the last couple of weeks,” said Charlton.

The Town coach added: “We all know that we can score tries – it’s defending that’s been our problem, especially in the first 10 minutes.

“We played some good rugby against London last week and we played some dumb rugby. Our main goal is to get it up to an acceptable level for a full 80 minutes.”

Charlton continued: “Doncaster are probably in the same boat as us. Once everybody hits their straps then I think we’ll start to see some of the teams at the bottom of the division getting some points.”

Doncaster coach Tony Miller is awaiting specialist reports on Aaron Henry (knee) and Liam Brown (shoulder), although both are unlikely to play on Sunday.

Victory at Workington could pushed Miller’s men into the Co-operative Championship One play-off places.

Miller said: “We’ve got three games on the trot coming up before the end of the month and we need to win some of the games – it’s as simple as that.”
