Castleford stand-in coach Danny Orr was a happy man after the Tigers ended their nine match winless streak against Widnes on Saturday.
Orr, taking charge of his first game following the departure of Ian Millward last week, saw his side fight back from 26-16 down at half time to win 28-26, and claim just their second win of the season.
He told the club’s official website: “I’m happy now.
“It’s gone from tense as hell with 10 minutes to go to a massive relief really – I honestly didn’t think that it would be like that.
“It was really good effort but you just always thought ‘hang on, hang on, hang on’ but there’s nothing you can do about it, you have just got to have faith and trust in your players to get the job done and full credit to them because they did. So I’m a very relieved and happy man.”
Orr, who has said he doesn’t want the job on a permanent basis, played more than 200 games for Castleford during his playing career, and also turned out for Wigan and Harlequins.
