Dewsbury Rams prop Kyle Trout insists that everyone just needs to concentrate on what the Rams are doing and not be worried about the opposition.
Dewsbury’s next fixture is away at the London Broncos, and Trout is hoping that the Rams can get back on track after a difficult period.
He said: “We need to concentrate on ourselves and look after what we are doing and I think if we do that it doesn’t really matter who we are playing against. We can compete against anyone in this league, it’s then just competing for eighty minutes.
“I’m not really worried what they are going to throw at us, we are just wanting a reaction between ourselves and to do what we have been talking about.”
On the last result against Halifax, the Rams were defeated 46-18 at the Tetley’s Stadium, and Trout believes that whilst the result was disappointing, there were good things to take out of the fixture.
The 27 year old commented: “Overall I think individually everyone made a mistake at some point in the game, and as a collective I don’t think we turned the ball over very well. we didn’t have the same game speed as they did.
“We were just catching up with the sets quite often and they got the ball out too easily from the ruck sometimes. We showed in patches that when you play with speed like we did in some moments then on the attack we are a very dangerous team.
“It is frustrating, but not in who we are playing against, it is more frustrating that we are hitting and missing. We had a patch in the game where we brought the score back to four points and played well, then we tailed off again.
“If we had done that for the rest of the fixture it could have been a different outcome, but they just got back on it and then kept it like that until the end of the game.
“The main talking point is that we need to play what we see and complete our sets and that’s what we aren’t doing at the moment.”
On his own game he said: “I’m nowhere near where I would like to be, I am trying to fit in somewhere, I have moved all over. I’ve not really had that continuity in my career yet, so that is something I am looking to fix.
“The coaching staff here are working really hard with me on that, and they have been great so far with me. They have been good with me when I have been out of the team for various reasons, and now I just want to kick on and get some good form going in my own game.
“I am trying to take on board everything the coaches are saying to me and I know myself that I am a lot better than what I have been showing, and I want to prove that going forward.”
