Soward was an average player at best - with the exception of his kicking , in that he was one of the better players running around at that time . What the difference was was quite simply Bennett , he made a silk purse out of a sow’s ear and Soward became one of the most important cogs in the Dragons quest for the premiership. It was Bennett who could see his weaknesses and thus implemented plans to off set them . He also assigned a ‘ back up ‘ defender should he miss a tackle, of which there were many . All in all he and Hornby combination along with Nathan Fiend went along way towards securing the 2010 trophy .
