Betts staying philosophical
Widnes coach Dennis Betts urged his players to stay philosophical after they fell to a last-gasp defeat at fellow strugglers London.
The two sides went into the break level at Twickenham Stoop, with Craig Gower and Omari Caro cancelling out tries from Widnes pair Cameron Phelps and Frankie Winterstein. Phelps and Winterstein completed their braces either side of efforts from Broncos centre Tony Clubb and Daniel Sarginson, before Antonio Kaufusi stole in for a late try to lift London off the bottom of the Super League table. Betts felt his side did enough to take something away from the capital but was ultimately left disappointed as Widnes failed to build on last week's shock victory over Huddersfield. "We have to stay philosophical about it. Last week we won a game in the last minute and this week we lose in the last minute," said Betts. "I thought we did enough to deserve something from the game, although we did have to spend a lot of our time defending and that took a lot of energy out of us. "I'm really disappointed as this was a great opportunity to push ourselves away from the foot of the table and we have not taken it."
