Holbrook: We Found A Way

Justin Holbrook paid credit to his players after Danny Richardson kicked a penalty on the hooter to beat Warrington 14-12.

“Warrington are a good side, are well organised and well coached,” he said. “They came with a certain style of play that was allowed for the whole game and it was hard to watch. So to win that, well, it’s full credit to our players to hang on and find a way.

“Longy (Sean Long) had a lot of confidence in Danny. I thought Tommy Makinson kicks the ball a long way, should we get him on … but Longy said Danny would kick it and he did.

“He is a great young kid. To be able to step up and kick that at the end of the game is special. He is everything you want in a young player – you want them to back yourself. It was great to see. It’s good for our comp and our team.”

He continued: “We had a big start to the second half and it was important to take the chance as we knew there wouldn’t be that many opportunities. 

“We came into it in the last 10 of the first half and I thought LMS was outstanding in that spell. Theo Fages did the same in the second half.

“Jonny Lomax was fantastic again too.

“We knew it would be hard, but it was an important win.”
