They beat West Leeds 20-14 on Saturday and Floyd insists that his side can turn things around.

He said:”It was a huge win for the lads and we definitely deserved it.

“These last couple of weeks has been really tough but we’ve continued to battle on and finally our hard work has been rewarded.”

His side were on a run of five straight defeats, falling just short on numerous occasions.

“We’ve been close to picking up wins on different occasions but I guess we’ve lacked that end product,” he added.

“We spoke after the game about how this game could be a turning point for us and that more results will follow if we stick to our plans.”

A first half try from Regan Stirk and second half tries from Daniel Vannet and Joshua Stanyon proved the difference between the two sides.

“At training last week Mike (Myerscough) changed plans and gave us a game structure to work off.

“It worked perfectly and allowed to us to manage the game much better and ultimately pick up the points,” the scrum-half added.

“Half the squad is full of young lads and this meant that some people had a few doubts.

“It feels like a weight has been lifted but we’re not out of the woods just yet.”

The Yorkshire One struggles host third place Beverley on Saturday and Floyd is expecting another tough game.

“It’ll be another tough game for the lads and we will need to keep our standards high,” added Floyd.

“When we last played Beverly, we were dominating at half-time and if we play like that I believe that we will pick up the results.

“I have confidence that we will turn this around, we just have to keep believing in the process and putting all our efforts into the cause.”
