Patience and togetherness the key for Weyman


18th March 2014

Mick Weyman says that sticking together and being more patient in games will help the Robins move up the Super League table sooner rather than later.

Last Friday’s defeat at Wigan has left Weyman and his colleagues still waiting for their first win of the 2014 season and he insists that it isn’t too far away.

“We just need to stick together,” he said. “Things always turn and every club goes through it. Every team goes through it in every sport. The main thing is that you have to stick together and come out of the other side. The beauty of our squad is that we are staying strong and we will come through it. We just need to keep working hard and stick to the structures and if we do that, things will definitely turn for us.

“The most frustrating aspect of the defeat at Wigan was that we controlled the game for a good 50 minutes or so. Unfortunately though in today’s game, you have to be patient for the full 80 minutes and we haven’t been doing that. We’re not far off and there are a few areas we need to keep working on, but we’re improving. There is a strong belief within the group and things will only get better for us.”

Having had back to back games on the road, the Robins will return to home soil and the KC Lightstream Stadium on Sunday as they entertain the Bradford Bulls (KO 3pm). It’s the first of two home fixtures on the bounce (the other being against Wakefield on Sunday March 30th) but Weyman says that all of the focus will be on the visit of the Bulls.

“We just look forward to this week,” he continued. “We’ll look at the video and work on what we can. It’s a new week and it’ll be great to be playing at home again at the weekend.

“I really enjoyed playing in the game against Leeds and I’m looking forward to experiencing the atmosphere that our fans create again. Our supporters are the best I’ve seen and the best I’ve been involved with. The support they give to the team and the atmosphere they create is unbelievable and certainly one of a kind.”
