RugbyL: Betts Targets Top Four For Widnes


RugbyL: Betts targets top four for Widnes

LONDON, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 25th july, 2016) - Widnes coach Denis Betts has set his sights on reaching the top four and the play-offs after finishing off the regular Super League season with a convincing 32-4 win over Catalans Dragons. The Vikings head into the Super Eights in seventh, four wins behind fourth-placed St Helens, and three behind the French side who they beat on Sunday. With just seven games remaining, a place in the top four remains a long shot, but Betts insists his team will give it everything to overhaul those ahead of them. He said: "Defensively we were really good and we were also clinical in attack.

"It was a hard-fought win and the pack were outstanding.

Kev Brown was really smart going for penalties to keep the scoreboard ticking over in the first half. "We have not been out of the eight all year and we are now looking forward to playing the top teams. "We are only three and four wins behind Catalans and St Helens and we are setting realistic goals to push ourselves into a higher position." Catalans dropped below Saints in the table after their 23-4 win against Wigan, which denied the Warriors the chance of finishing top of the table after Round 23.
