Coach Chris Coates said:

"The boys have worked really hard and the attitude at the club is great. Everyone wants to learn, everyone wants to pull together for each other. We're gelling slowly into a real team and it's showing in our performances.

"The best bit? There's so much more growth in the side to come and the lads know it. I'm really excited to see how they develop as they continue to grow."

Most importantly, we are looking forward to playing Rugby League in Sheffield again this year - we can't wait to get started!

Play. Volunteer. Support.
