NEWS | Horne previews Crusaders test

Richard Horne spoke to the media ahead of the trip to North Wales Crusaders in the Betfred League One play-offs this weekend.

The Dons go into the game on the back of a 31-10 win over Hunslet last time out.

On facing the Crusaders:

“They are a big outfit and we will have to be smart to try and manage their big players.

“If they get a role on around the ruck area they are tough to handle in key areas.

“They’ve got a good kicking game so we have to make sure we return the ball well.

“If we do that then we know when we get into attacking positions we can post some points.”

On taking it one game at a time:

“We’ve said before that every game is a final for us, we know the stakes are high and we can’t afford any slip ups.

“The situation is clear for us, it’s win or we’re out so the boys have a straightforward mindset going into it.

“It’s a long trip but we will have a couple of these if we’re to go all the way, so we’re ready.”
