Cum­mins fuming at Widnes at­ti­tude

Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - RUGBY LEAGUE -

QUAL­I­FIERS: Widnes coach Fran­cis Cum­mins ac­cused some of his play­ers of “giv­ing in” dur­ing their lat­est dam­ag­ing Su­per 8s Qual­i­fiers de­feat.

A 42-22 loss to Toulouse in the south of France leaves the Su­per League wooden spoon­ists with­out a win so far in the Qual­i­fiers and star­ing at the prospect of rel­e­ga­tion to the Cham­pi­onship.

The Vik­ings led 10-6 early in the game thanks to tries from Kris­nan Inu and Har­ri­son Hansen and, af­ter trail­ing 18-10 at the break, kept them­selves in con­tention thanks to sec­ond half tries from Weller Hau­raki and Lloyd White be­fore al­low­ing their hosts to fin­ish on top.

“We had a few play­ers who had given in by then, which is the worst feel­ing in the world,” Cum­mins said.
