Workington coach Gary Charlton said: “We were going sideways rather than forward in the first half, but the boys rolled up their sleeves in the second half.
“We took our chances very well. We’ve now played well for 40 minutes against Sheffield Eagles and Barrow. When we play well for 80 minutes, we’ll be able to hold our own against anyone in this division.”
Kear said: “It was Ryan Hall-esque, it was a sensational finish.
“When you watched it live you thought he had half a chance, and he’d taken it.
“But when you review it and look at the replays, he shows a great grip to put the ball down one-handed, and has great body awareness to keep himself in the field of play.
“There was obviously immense pressure from the opposition, as well as pressure from the context of the try – it was the last play of the game and our last chance to get a result.”
