Foley: Plenty of room for the Force to improve

Western Force coach Michael Foley says that even though they have won four matches back to back for the first time there is room for improvement.

The Force were 29-25 down with minutes left on the clock when fullback Jayden Hayward stepped through two tackles to fall over the line and score, with his successful conversion helping claim the narrow three-point win.

Coach Foley said while he was pleased with the victory, there was improvement left within the team.

“We had to step up [tonight),” he said.

“I think the boys are rapt to get the result tonight but while the boys showed a lot of character, we didn’t play our best footy and the nice thing about the way the guys are is that no-one hides from that.

“We don’t get too carried away about the results. “

“When we had the first two games – which were poor performances – we tried to be as thorough and as clinical as we could be in terms of our analysis and what we needed to differently.”

“When we look at tonight’s performance, we’re thrilled to get the result, and I thought the Reds fought us all the way to the death, but we didn’t play our best footy and we will need to step up to beat the Waratahs.

“The Waratahs are one of the top sides in the comp and if we do step up then we give ourselves the best chance.’

The Force will return home to take on the Waratahs at the ‘Force Field’ (nib Stadium) on Saturday the 12th of April.
