FLYING winger Rob Worrincy has urged his Fax teammates to keep their feet on the ground following their stunning 60-12 hammering of Co-operative Championship rivals Featherstone Rovers at Post Office Road.
Worrincy was one of seven Fax players to cross the whitewash during Sunday’s one-sided encounter which saw Karl Harrison’s side produce a near faultless display at a ground where it is notorioulsy difficult to get a result.
But Worrincy has been around long enough to know that one game does not make a season and while he believes the squad should be allowed to bask in the satisfaction of such a stylish and emphatic victory, he knows there is plenty of hard work ahead before the end of the season.
“It is a marathon not a sprint,” said Worrincy. “I think every team in this division has stepped up their recruitment and as a result there are some very good sides who will not make it easy for anybody.
“There is no point getting carried away with one good result, we have to continue taking things week by week.
“It isn’t just about Sunday, it is about building and dealing with each opposition in the correct manner when they come along.”
The atmosphere in the dressing room was electric following Sunday’s match and Worrincy believed it was a mixture of elation and relief as Fax ended a two-match losing streak having succumbed twice to Leigh in their previous outings..
“After the last couple of weeks when we have lost out from a winning position we just needed to get over the line,” he added. “We stuck to the game plan and totally dominated the game.
“The skipper’s proud, the boss is proud and I think we can all give ourselves a pat on the back after that performance.
“When you lose any game it is quite hard to take, but I think we had a bit more guts about us and a bit more luck and that made a big difference.
“Featherstone is a difficult place to come and get a result as Castleford and Wigan have found out recently, but we kept our shape and our discipline and never allowed them to settle. That gave us confidence and we were worthy winners in the end.”
While Ross Divorty claimed the try-scoring honours with a hat-trick against his former club, Worrincy was delighted with his point-scoring contribution - a second half length of the field sprint after Rovers had lost the ball on Fax’s line when they looked poised to score.
“I always seem to score long range tries and it was no different on Sunday,” said Worrincy.” Something a bit closer - say 10 yards - would be nice next time.
“But I was really chuffed to be honest and it is always a bonus to get over that try line.”
