Betts: We are in a hole

Denis Betts believes Widnes’ lack of preparation time led to their disappointing performance against Wakefield at Magic Weekend on Saturday.

The Vikings welcomed new signing Rangi Chase into their line-up, but Trinity dominated from start to finish on their way to a 34-12 victory.

Betts said: “We were good in patches – on attack we looked like a side that had five blokes that we’d spent only two hours with this week. We had a completely new half-back pairing and it was tough.

“Rangi was not used to the calls, not used to the players around him. He had a couple of training sessions and it showed. We showed lot of determination and stayed in the fight for a long time.

“They scored a couple of breakaway tries from us trying to score points. The lads are hurting. Wakefield are a side that’s going well but we allowed them opportunities which they took. We’re in a hole.”
