Rampant Rangi praised by Watson

Salford’s acting head coach Ian Watson praised his enigmatic half-back Rangi Chase after he produced the game-clincher for Salford in their victory over Wakefield.

Chase scored with ten minutes to go, weaving through several defenders before racing the length of the field to put Salford ahead.

Afterwards, Watson heaped praise on his half-back, days after fellow playmaker Theo Fages resigned from the club.

“Rangi cost us a couple of tries during the game but he provided a magic moment for that try which won it for us,” said Watson

“It’s vital to get off with a win and these players have got a point to prove – we’re going out to win these middle eights.”
