Wolves' youngsters reaping the benefits of extra training
1:00pm Monday 11th March 2013 in Wolves news
WOLVES' Academy coach Gary Chambers believes his young side are reaping the benefits of extra training after recording their second win on the bounce against a talented St Helens side.
Tries from Jordan Burns, Ryan Maneely and Jimmy Rowland, two, secured Wolves' under 19s a comfortable victory at Wilderspool Stadium, with Chambers highlighting the extra sessions they have completed in a bid to turn their form around after losing three of the first four games of the season.
"That was an excellent all-round team performance and each player can be rightly proud of their efforts," he said.
"We played some tough stuff against a very good team and to back up from the victory over Hull KR in such a manner was very pleasing.
"The nice thing from my point of view is that there are still areas for us to work on and we will improve even further over the next few months.
"We are setting ourselves some high standards and the lads have committed to this and are putting in an extra nights training as well as additional position specific skills sessions.
"These mean that they are being educated constantly and this learning is being transferred into games, which was evident against Saints and is really pleasing.
"The hard work they are putting in is being rewarded.
"We have belief in what we are doing as a group and if you combine that with the way the young fellas are starting to ‘buy in’ to the practices we are teaching them then the improvements each week will continue to be there for all to see."
Chambers had plenty of praise for all his young team, but it was the tireless performance of his second rowers and the tactical kicking of his halves that really drew their coach's eye.
"Jacque Peet and Jonny Brown both put in massive 80-minute performances in the second row, Jack Johnstone continues to improve each week on the wing and Jordan Burns had his best game for the club in the centre," he said.
"The excellent kicking game of half backs Declan Patton and Jimmy Rowland was very significant in the conditions and this kept Saints on the back foot for long periods.
"We will now re-focus in training this week and get ourselves ready for the trip to Sheffield Eagles on Saturday.”
