“Training has been good and we will go into this week with confidence.”

Rams led 8-0 and 14-6 against York last Sunday and it was 20-20 going into the final quarter before the visitors sealed the win with 10 unanswered points.

“It was a good effort against York,” Greenwood added.

“They have got some high-profile, quality players and I thought for large parts of the game we kept them quiet and looked on a par with them.

“We have got to take heart from that.

“It is a similar sort of challenge for us this week, they have got a lot of big names and we expect them to come desperate for a win.

“We need to be right on our game to give ourselves a chance.”
