ORMONDROYD: “IT’S POSITIVE SIGNS FOR ME!”

ORMONDROYD: “IT’S POSITIVE SIGNS FOR ME!”

by | Apr 5, 2024

Jack Ormondroyd is pleased with the progress he’s made in 2024.

The prop signed for Salford Red Devils in 2020 and has cemented himself as a regular member of the team under Head Coach, Paul Rowley.

Ahead of last season, Ormondroyd signed a new three-year deal, meaning he’ll be donning the red and white until at least 2025.

Reflecting on his own form, the 32-year-old admitted to our YouTube channel that he is back enjoying his rugby after a difficult season in 2023.

“It’s positive signs for me,” he began.

“I think I had a bit of a dip last year, I don’t think I was great last year, so coming into this year I had a bit to prove to Rowls.

“I’m just trying to do the basics right and I’ve played a few more minutes than I did last year, so it’s good at the minute, and I’m enjoying it again.”

With four wins from six to kickstart the Betfred Super League campaign, Ormondroyd is happy with the teams’ level of performance, but also admits there’s plenty they can do to improve.

“Yeah, good – I think there’s always room for improvement. I think the two games we’ve lost were winnable games as well, so it’s positive signs.

“Like you say, a couple of months into the season and we’ve got plenty to go, so we’ve got a lot to work on still and hopefully we can keep ticking off them wins.”

Castleford Tigers lie in wait this evening; a team who currently sit without a point in 2024, but have showed plenty of resilience in the past few weeks.

“They’re a tough prospect,” Ormondroyd continued.

“They’re bottom of the league, which isn’t great for them, but watching the game last week against Leeds, they were all over them.

“If Leeds had defended a little bit worse there, they’d have scored a few tries, so there’s no easy games, and we’ll have to be on it if we want to get the win.”
