Coach Jon Sharp was delighted with the way Featherstone controlled the game in Sunday’s vital 34-6 win at Batley Bulldogs.
“We showed a steely attitude and were very hard nosed in what we did,” he said.
“We played at the right time and reined it in at the right time at well and I thought that made a massive difference.
“It gave us some energy in the second-half.
“We only used four substitutions in the first-half and one was really late in the first period when we took off Bostock.
“We had lots of changes up our sleeves in the second-half going downhill.”
Sunday’s win kept alive Featherstone’s Championship top-four bid with two matches remaining in the regular season.
“It was a quarterfinal for us at Batley and we’ve won that,” added Sharp.
“Now we are in the semi-final against Halifax next Sunday and we don’t look any further ahead than that.
“It’s a semi-final next Sunday and we know we need to be up another level but should have lots of confidence from the Batley game.”
