“It was a typical third game of Easter.

“We’ve generally been pretty good in this period but I haven’t been able to rotate like normal. We have 10 guys out and we lost Grant Millington early on, and it’s made it hard for us.

“It’s a massive win. I said to (assistant) Danny Orr before the game whether we’d have enough to beat them but we did, just about.

“There’s a couple of clubs who’ve responded well to new coaches such as Wakefield and Hull KR - and the competition is real tight, so it’s an important win.”
