Coach Quotes

Looking ahead to Friday’s Derby fixture, Head Coach Denis Betts said: “The obvious three of Leeds, York and St Helens are our main targets. It’s a great challenge this week against St Helens on a great ground and what promises to be a fantastic night, hopefully we can really put a marker down and be competitive again and show that we’re continuing to improve.”
