Betts rues missed opportunities

Widnes coach Denis Betts was frustrated with his players in the defeat to Hull FC who weren’t clinical enough when chances came their way.

The Vikings failed to score a point last night at home to the Black and Whites.

“We’re disappointed. We’re disappointed because I thought there were large patches of the game where we had some good control, we did some good stuff and then a little bit of indiscipline in the first half,” Betts told Sky Sports.

“Things just didn’t go our way, couple of errors. We ended up defending the majority of the first half and they just end up falling over the line.

“16 really poor points that we gave away in the first half. They didn’t really have to do much apart from fall over the line.

“The second half was a battle with energy, troops and it was tough.”

Betts admitted there were two moments early in the second half which could have turned the match.

“That was the story of the game,” he said.

“It was like last week, we were over the line three times against Catalan and didn’t get the points. We just have to be more ruthless in those kind of approaches.

“Lloyd’s got to score a try, from what I see Corey’s looks like a try so it’s one of those tough places to be.

“Unfortunately we ended up with a back rower playing in the centres and this was a Hull side who is on the roll.

“It is great to see they bring their support and they sing and they stay as long as that.”
