“We feel like we have been harshly treated a little bit this group so to be fair we have got what we deserve which is to be back in Super League and we can kind of build on that as well,” Watson told Sky Sports.
“I would have rather have been in a better situation than what has happened but it’s got us back to where we need to be so we’re happy with that.
“It means everything to be in the Super League and it means everything to this group as well.
“I just feel sorry for Hull KR and the situation now that they’re in.
Watson praised the character of his team, who were 18-10 down with just a minute of normal time remaining before snatching the win in golden point.
“Five minutes left to go we sent a call out there to defend our goal line and have a belief in each other that we would come through, be able to score on them and break,” he said.
“There are a load of them who have pushed through for us when it mattered.
“It’s attitude, it’s desire, it is everything you talk about. That has kind of what got us the victory.”
