Kingstone Press Performance of the Week – Rochdale
Hornets coach Ian Talbot said: “We had a bit of a boost last week with our performance against the All Golds in the Tetley’s Challenge Cup, and that was a real shot in the arm for us.
“We spoke about transferring that form into the league competition, and we managed to do that apart from a spell just before half-time when Batley built up some momentum and went in front.
“We knew that as we find our feet at this level we’d improve – some of the lads have not played in this competition before.
“It was probably a bit earlier than we expected to put a performance like that together, but the lads got some reward for their hard work.”
