RIVAL COACHES Glenn Morrison and Matt Diskin are both calling for a response from their sides in the Championship tomorrow.
Morrison’s Dewsbury Rams play host to London Broncos (3pm) a week after a 56-2 beating in Toulouse.
Dom Speakman (broken thumb) and Aaron Brown (ear) have both undergone surgery this week, Jack Teanby (ankle) and Tony Tonks (shoulder) have been ruled out after suffering injuries in France and Aaron Ollett damaged a hamstring in training. Morrison admitted his main battle this week has been putting a fit side together and he said: “Every hurdle we get over, we seem to hit another.
“It is tough. The boys realise we’ve got it in us, but we just aren’t getting into the right areas or breaking teams down. One win will turn it around.”
Batley were crushed 32-6 at home by Featherstone Rovers last week, but boss Matt Diskin is expecting better against Sheffield Eagles at Wakefield tomorrow (3pm).
“The transition from the previous regime to this one was always going to have its rough moments, but we will get there,” Diskin said.
“We just need to play a bit more direct, by which I mean not be as lateral, square up and play a bit more.
“The half-backs are aware of it and that’s what we’re looking to do this week.”
