<p>Doncaster player coach spoke to the official website in the aftermath of the 40-10 win against Rochdale Hornets.</p>
<p>Richard Wilkinson was awarded the man of the match performance, returning to the side with a stellar performance.</p>
<p>The Dons boss was full of praise for the young half-back, who picked up the man of the match.</p>
<p>He said: &ldquo;Richard has been really good in training, he has kept his head down and as a young boy we have to look after him.</p>
<p>&ldquo;Matty Wildie is still on loan, but he was called back to Wakefield last week, but if he wasn&rsquo;t called back to Wakefield, Richard Wilkinson was going to play.</p>
<p>&ldquo;He knows he will be in and out of the team and today he has put in another quality shift.</p>
<p>&ldquo;Talking defensively and offensively, getting things organised on the right edge, he is certainly going to be one for the club for a long, long time in the future.</p>
<p>&ldquo;He knows that we still have a lot of work to do as staff to get him where we want him and where he wants to get to.&rdquo;</p>
<p>Steve Snitch also made his debut in the victory over the Hornets, coming on as a first half substitute.</p>
<p>Cooke believes there is still more to come from Snitch and believes the signing will get better and better.</p>
<p>&ldquo;Steve did okay, he knows he has some work to do to get up to speed,&rdquo; said Cooke.</p>
<p>&ldquo;He has worked really hard over the last fortnight in each and every session on developing his fitness.&nbsp;</p>
<p>&ldquo;What he showed is he is going to be a good asset to us as a back row, a middle man or a front row.</p>
<p>&ldquo;He will get progressively better with the more game time he gets, but it was a steady debut for him and I am sure he is glad to get it out of the way.</p>
<p>&ldquo;I spoke to him on the way down in the car and he was quite nervous about today&rsquo;s game and what he was getting himself into,</p>
<p>&ldquo;We have looked after him, he has only done 36-38 minutes and got a 30 minute stint out of the way in the first half so we are really pleased with that.</p>
