“We can’t afford to come away from home against a side as good as Doncaster and be as inaccurate as we were in their back yard.
“Early on we had a couple of lineouts, we had a dropped ball from the kick from Tony Fenner and we were in at the side and gave away a couple of penalties – so there were four or five attacking opportunities early on.
“We then ended up five metres off their line and threw it in not straight. So if we take those chances, then we can put more pressure on a side like Doncaster and maybe come away with more points.”
