Crusaders boss Iestyn Harris praised his team's never-say-die attitude as they battled back for a fourth Super League victory of the season.

The Wildcats led 10-0 at half-time but the Crusaders fought back impressively.

Harris said: "I though we were great from start to finish. Defensively, we were tough, physical and dominant. Even when we were 10-0 down, I thought we were going to put points on the board.

"All we needed to do was show a bit of patience but we were making 15 metres per set more than them throughout the game.

"It was only a matter of time before we got over the top of them but what I will say is that Wakefield showed fantastic resilience.

"I know there are a lot of young boys in there and they played exceptionally well, defending for their lives."

Irritated

Wakefield coach John Kear added: "We lost. I am irritated by a number of factors but those factors I would rather keep to myself.

"When you get a weight of possession against you as we had, the momentum changes. I'm sure the score was a fair indication of the game. I'm positive of that.

"I'm very annoyed and it is not just the players who need to look at their own performance. The Crusaders thought they were hard done by last week, well they certainly haven't been hard done by this week, believe you me.

"We picked up a load of injuries which affected us. We had two second-rows in the centre but that is not an excuse. All we want is a fair crack."
