Milnes Carries Confidence
Rowan Milnes is enjoying a flurry of games in the stand-off role and is eager to continue building on his form as the 21-year-old maintains a ‘perfectionist’ attitude.
Facing a struggling Salford side on Friday evening at Hull College Craven Park, the half-back admits his side are taking nothing for granted, with the fear of poking a sleeping giant.
“We’re under no illusions that results might not have gone their way in the past few weeks, but we know that they are a good football team. Come Friday night we’ll be ready to go and set to face the best Salford team,” said Milnes.
Milnes claimed his first Super League try last time out against the Centurions, but despite getting the monkey off his back, the former Bradford Bull has his eyes set on a much higher target.
“I was relieved to have had probably my best performance, but I wouldn’t say that I was happy – there are always areas to improve on. I think that’s the important thing, I never want to be happy with what I have done. You are never perfect so there’s always plenty for you to work on.
“We don’t want to stop here, we’ve done pretty well so far. It’s important for us to keep going and carry this form on through the entire year.”
With a daunting schedule concluding the Red Devils, Rovers’ number 25 says a new level of confidence surrounds the group will help inspire the Red and Whites.
“I think there is a change of belief in our group, within the club. We see ourselves up there with the top teams. We want to prove to others that we can compete and beat these teams.
“This where we want to be. Regardless of what has gone on in the years before, with this group of players that we have now, we feel that we are a special bunch that has something good going on here.
“Being a young lad, I’ve come through watching some of those Super League half-backs, who have NRL experience as well. But you want to play against the best and test yourself, so I’ll be looking forward to it.”Back To Latest News +
