NEWS | Horne proud of the players
Richard Horne gave his reaction to the media after his side were beaten by Keighley Cougars in Betfred League One.
A late try from the Cougars sealed a 28-26 win at the Keepmoat Stadium with the Dons down to 12 men for an hour of it.
On the performance:
“I couldn’t be prouder of the boys, they worked so hard to stay in the game after the sending off.
“We were into total control of the game up until that point and looked as though we could kick on further.
“They got us right at the end, we knew we might be hanging on with the energy we used throughout the game.
“I’m disappointed for the boys because they worked so hard and probably deserved the win.”
On preparing for the play-offs:
“It’s a huge week for us because I think Hunslet are in good form, it’s the tough route in the play-offs.
“We know what is at stake so it’s down to us to make sure the boys are ready for Sunday.
“It’s a bonus that we’re at home on a pitch that we like, and we’ve tried to treat the last few games like play-off rugby.”
