Denis Betts lamented completion rate, missed chances and a few calls after Widnes’ 19-10 derby defeat to Warrington.
He said: “Our completion rate in the first half was poor in the first half. We were down to sixty-odd percent and we didn’t give ourselves a chance.
“They started to win the ruck and got out from dummy half really well like they do.
“It was a messy game all over really. I don’t think it was a classic. The scoreline was pretty close.
“I was a bit disappointed with the double movement try, I’m disappointed with the forward pass call. I thought that was borderline and came out of his hands backward.
“We are not getting the rub of the green. Not saying that we win the game on the back of that but there’s a couple of things that aren’t going our way.”
“Overall we need to keep getting better.
“I’m pretty optimistic about the group. What I’ve been looking for, I am starting to see.”
