Rangi Chase didn’t plan magic moment against Hull

Salford stand-off Rangi Chase has revealed the thinking behind his improvised moment of magic against Hull FC at the weekend.

The former Engand international has acknowledged that instinct, rather than planning, plays the major role in moments like that.

“I don’t think you can just plan for that,” Chase told Sky Sports News HQ.

“You’ve only got a few seconds to make a decision. I had to try and make out to the wing that I was going to take the ball up, and being that far out from the goalline, he’s got to make a decision whether to come in.

“The only way I could pass the ball was to flick it behind my back. It came off and created the space for Josh Griffin on the wing, and he did well to score. I used to practice those things when I was a little kid so I’m glad it came off.

“I am flattered to be honest. I do it at training, so without being big-headed, I know I can do it. It is humbling though.”

Despite having a hand in helping to create four of Salford’s six tries in the win over Hull, Chase felt that there were still areas he could have improved on.

“People see all the good things but I know what I need to work on,” he said.

“I made a few mistakes in the game that could have gone the other way. I’m not kidding myself by saying it’s my best game.”
