Widnes Vikings have dropped eight games in a row and slid down the table, but their centre Charly Runciman believes an elusive victory is not far away.
The Vikings threw away a 12-4 half-time lead to lose 16-12 to Salford at Magic Weekend, with two tries disallowed and missing several opportunities to close out the match.
“It was frustrating in the end but we did a lot of defence,” Runciman said.
“I think just not scoring those tries in the end just really cost us. We got over the line a couple of times and there was a couple of no tries.
“You score those tries and it probably changes the game.
“I don’t think we’re very far off, we just need to do the little things.”
Widnes host the Giants at Select Security Stadium this Sunday and Runciman knows that his side just has to get over the line.
“We just need to win, plain and simple,” the Australian said.
“We just need to get the two points, it doesn’t matter how they come. We’ve got Huddersfield next week and I think we can get the job done at home.”
Runciman was playing in his first Magic Weekend in Newcastle, an experience he savoured, despite the defeat.
“It was a great atmosphere and an awesome stadium to play at,” the outside back said.
“It was a great opportunity for me being from Australia and seeing what it was like to play at a stadium like this.”
