Dons head coach Richard Horne has seen plenty of positives during his first week of training with the club.

The 34-year-old was at the game against Barrow Raiders and believes there are certain areas he can work on to improve the team’s overall play.

“It’s been great this week, I’m not looking to change too much too quickly as I’ve got to be realistic,” he said.

“Looking at our defence there is certainly room for improvement, our ruck area can be better and that will help us massively in terms of having the energy to play rugby.

“The boys are working hard for each other, if we can add a little bit more detail and control in to what they’re doing, hopefully we can start to get some more good results.”

The Dons have a weekend off before travelling to Whitehaven in Kingstone Press League One and Horne says that time will give him a chance to assess his options.

“There are a few lads here that I’ve only just met, the drills I’m doing in training allows me to get a feeling for everyone’s skill set and attitude towards training,” he added.

“Pete and Rhys have worked hard recently and have done a great job, the boys have been digging in and hopefully I can bring a bit more structure to the club.

“The week’s break gives me a bit of time to implement a few things, and I get to know the players a bit better and find out how I want to play with the players available.”
