The views of director of rugby Kieran Lawry after Bridlington’s win over Dinnington.

“Half of the forwards on Saturday were 21 or under which once again shows the belief and desire to develop the first team through our vital junior section.

“We competed well up front during the whole 80 minutes although our lack of bulk, and more importantly aggression around the breakdown meant we didnt win enough quick ball to play our natural game.

“When we did win the ball quickly and set up a number of scoring opportunities we too often squandered them and should probably have won the game by a much bigger margin.

“If we don’t improve on our finishing and become more clinical, then better teams will make us regret it.

“This is certainly something we will be working hard on in training this week.

“Gary Heeley, Adam Dixon, Daniel Perkin and Michael Ridsdale all had good games in the pack although the stand out performance, in only his second full league match, was second row Tom Benninger who won some fantastic lineout ball and got through plenty of hard work in the loose.

“Despite the backs spurning a lot of chances Jamie Muru, Sizwe Zondo and AJ Burrows all played well while Regan Stirk scored two good tries.

“This Saturday will be a huge test against promotion chasing Knottingley who have spent big and recruited well in the summer.

“We go there with confidence however and I’m sure if we play the game at a high tempo and work hard we are good enough to come away with the win.”
