Speaking after the game McClennan said, "Our faith in each other never wavered, not one bit. We had eight tough days but we knew we would be able to put things together. We showed great togetherness especially on defence, They are a tough side and they will strangle plenty of teams this season.
"Kevin Sinfield was great for us. He showed great vision to set up the try for Danny McGuire just before half time and he led us around the field well," added McClennan.
