Toronto Wolfpack Head Coach Brian McDermott believe the Wolfpack can build on their performance next week.
The Wolfpack went down 28-10 against Castleford Tigers at Headingley on Sunday.
He said: “We had some patches there that we can build on for next week. There were some solid patches there on defence and we showed how resourceful we can be in attack but then there were some patches which showed we are not used to this level just yet.
Despite scoring the first try of the game through Liam Kay, the Wolfpack would succumb to the Tigers. Tries from Greg Eden, Hakim Miloudi, Adam Milner, Michael Shenton and Peter Mata’uita meant Cas were out of sight by the time Hakim Miloudi pulled another one back for Toronto.
Despite the result, McDermott was upbeat about the game, and Toronto’s prospects for the rest of the season.
“We’ll have our say this year for sure. In many respects, I’m really pleased with how that panned out today. I’d have liked to maybe been a bit more fluent in attack and got one or two more tries but fair play to Castleford, they blew us away in that little period just before half-time.”
They will hope to bounce back against a Salford Red Devils side also coming in off the back of a heavy defeat.
