Cooke: ''We gave ourselves every opportunity''

14 September 2014 - 06:37 PM

<p>Doncaster RLFC player coach Paul Cooke spoke to the official website after his sides 41-14 defeat at Leigh Centurions.</p>
<p>The Dons lead for a large period of the first half and had opportunities in the match to extend that advantage.</p>
<p>However Leigh came back in the second half and Cooke believes his side were made to pay for failing to convert chances.</p>
<p>He said: &ldquo;We gave ourselves every opportunity at 14-6 but we bombed two tries and at 6-20 I would have backed us.</p>
<p>&ldquo;Not only with Kyle Kesik not scoring, but we also knocked on from the following drop out and it effectively cost us in the end.</p>
<p>&ldquo;We have contributed to our own down fall, Leigh have not done anything that we said they wouldn&rsquo;t do.</p>
<p>&ldquo;Every time they have got us with a play we knew that would be coming and that is a disappointing factor.</p>
<p>&ldquo;We can&rsquo;t fault the effort and endeavour of the players, but when we make that many mistakes, when you make as many errors as that in crucial field possession with the try line begging then you are asking for trouble.&rdquo;</p>

Morrison: ''We believed we could beat them''

14 September 2014 - 06:37 PM

<p>Doncaster back Nev Morrison spoke to the official website after the clubs play-off defeat at Leigh Centurions.</p>
<p>The Dons spent the majority of the first half in the lead but Leigh fought back to victory.</p>
<p>Despite the result, Morrison was pleased with elements of the performance.</p>
<p>He said: &ldquo;In the first half we showed what we can do, we stuck to our game plan, we believed we could beat them.</p>
<p>&ldquo;We fell off it though, through errors and penalties and that ultimately cost us in the end.</p>
<p>&ldquo;We bombed a couple of opportunities, Kyle Kesik had a chance and Craig Robinson put me through and I knocked on, so it was poor from me.</p>
<p>&ldquo;It is simple stuff, we should be catching balls and scoring tries, that is what makes or breaks a game.</p>
<p>&ldquo;We will have to work on training and put it right next week when we play against Sheffield.&rdquo;</p>
