Hunslet Hawks: In-game consistency key to Hawks’ semi-final goal says Bramald

HIS TEAM’S lack of consistency is giving Hunslet Hawks head coach Matt Bramald a bit of a headache.

Bramald is confident Hawks can secure a place in the Kingstone Press League One semi-finals – if they manage to stick to what they are good at.

Hawks, who visit Keighley Cougars in the Super-8s tomorrow (3pm), have won six of their last seven games, but only after some anxious moments.

“Most teams, barring Toulouse and Rochdale, seem to be a bit Jekyll and Hyde, but we are that within a game, not from one game to the next,” Bramald said.

“We will have a really good period, but we’re not able to sustain it.

“We need to develop a level of consistency.”

Bramald accepts there will be times in matches when Hawks aren’t on top.

But he added: “We have to make sure when we are not completely dominant we are still in it, we can go set-for-set and raise our levels to where they need to be.”

Cougars are one place above Hunslet on points difference and Bramald has identified tomorrow as a key game.

“It won’t be easy,” he added. “They have been pretty good at home. It is a massive challenge, but one we are looking forward to.”
