We’re not as good as we think we are, says Halifax head coach

Halifax head coach Richard Marshall was brutally honest after Halifax’s 26-6 defeat to Sheffield last week.

After wasting numerous gilt-edged opportunities in the first-half, Sheffield blew Halifax away, scoring 20 points in the opening 14 minutes of the second-half.

It was a disappointing result for Fax, and one that left Marshall frustrated.

“We’re not as good as we think we are, that’s a simple assessment,” he told TotalRL.

“At the end of the game Sheffield scored and scored and scored. You only get so many opportunities. At the minute we’re not a good enough team to throw away seven or eight try-scoring chances and then think we’re good enough to get the same in the second-half.

“But it’s not the end of the world, far from it. We’ve got a young, new team and we’re looking forward to the response in the week.”
