Swinton coach McCormack rues missed try chance against Huddersfield Giants
SWINTON coach Steve McCormack was proud of his side’s display in the fifth-round Challenge Cup defeat against the Giants at the Galpharm Stadium.
The Championship club never stopped battling, but McCormack was left to rue a disallowed try from Ian Mort which meant they conceded nine tries unanswered.
“I thought we had a right dig at them, especially in the second half and I’m disappointed we didn’t score,” said McCormack.
“I think it was a try, but the touch judge gave it the other way – but I don’t think we’d have won anyway! I’m proud of the players and hopefully we’ll learn from what Huddersfield have done to us and build on this for the remainder of the season.”
McCormack admitted, however, that his side was always going to be up against it.
“They don’t come much tougher than Huddersfield at the Galpharm,” he added.
They’re a great side and are outstandingly coached as well.
