“It was exciting,” Wane said.

“Just to win that game was a great effort from us. We showed gritty determination to stay in it right until the end.

“I knew we had tries in us. We just needed to keep hold of the ball and complete our sets. In the last 25 minutes we did that and we put some tries away.

“In the past, from 2010, we have not found ways to win and that has been the pleasing thing about this season is that we have found ways to win and not played that well.”

“We have got eight men out of a 26 man squad really and I thought we worked really hard and tried to pass the ball a lot. I’m pleased with that but I just get a bit frustrated with some decisions, they didn’t need any help.”
