CAMPBELL’S COMMENT

Simon Smith’s charges showed what they were made of coming back from a mauling at York to run in seven tries in a feast of running rugby against Salem. The bonus in this game was an improvement in set piece plays by the forward pack. More than half of this class of 2017/18 are youngsters and once again they gladdened this old heart by their effort, commitment and skill. Ben Martin was my pick of the pack whilst 9 to 15 delighted the big Silver Royd turnout with their creativity and pace. There was some disappointment in the stand and clubhouse that the Seasiders appeared to take their foot off the gas in the final quarter of the game; Is it a lack of either fitness or the killer instinct? I’m not sure but Simon no doubt will be looking to find out and sort it out on the training paddock. And let’s be positive here; 25 tries in the first five league games is not a bad return on their investment in such an entertaining brand of rugby.
