Radford over the moon after victory over Wakefield

Lee Radford was left delighted after his side returned to winning ways with a hard-fought victory over Wakefield.

Despite being far from their best, Mahe Fonua’s try eight minutes from time secured them a victory that kept their hopes of the League Leaders’ Shield alive.

“I told them beforehand I’d take any kind of win and they held me to that,” Radford said. “I’m over the moon with the two points, although obviously it was a bit of an eyesore for 80 minutes.

“We played really well last week against a good Wigan side and got nothing for it. At this time of the year all it’s about is picking two points up.”

The Challenge Cup winners must now wait for the outcome of Warrington’s game with Wigan to discover if they can still win the League Leaders’ Shield.
