Pirates chief Dave Marsden was full of praise for the duo, and the young A side as a whole, after their winning start to the new campaign.

He said: “It’s fantastic for Keith and Alex to have had such an impact on the game and for the side to win their first match.

“They’re a young side and struggled at times last season, but they’ve got that extra bit of experience in there now.

“It’s a big step up from junior rugby league to senior leagues, so Alex has done really well to have such an imact.”
