Cardiff Preview With Jason Strange

Looking ahead to their televised game with Cardiff at the Arms Park on Thursday night, returning Head Coach Jason Strange gives his thoughts on his return to the club, and looks ahead to his first proper game in charge.

“The boys have been great over Christmas, doing two or three sessions a week. I’m standing back a little bit and see where we are to know where we want to go with the lads, to create a game plan.”

“It’s better coming into the club this time round than it was when I first came here in 2010, I think it was, where we only had 6 players on the books and were in the Championship. At least we have 25 of our own players this time and are in the Premiership.”

The club had only won twice this season before Jason arrived and sat on the foot of the eastern conference of the Indigo Group Premiership Cup. Despite the obvious challenges ahead, Jason knows exactly what he wants from the players, and where he wants to go with them.

“We’ve worked on fitness a lot, and they’ve found that tough. Coming in, I’ve looked at the behaviour to see what type of group we are and what we want to be, on and off the field. Boys like Ross Jones and Aaron Coundley have added plenty of experience and we’re a young squad. 

“We’re looking at recruiting all the time, similar to what we do at St. Helens’, and the boys we want to bring in are those who need a chance, like Alex Howe at Abergavenny. I’m also looking at a few local boys as they’ll bring and understand the passion that they need to bring and succeed at the club.”

Supporters are urged to click record on their TV and head to the capital via train, bus or car and get behind Chippy and the boys, to make sure Cardiff #FEELTHESTEEL!!!
