Myler: It is the worst feeling in the world
RICHIE Myler believes there is no secret ingredient to help turn Warrington Wolves into a Super League-winning team, they already have all that they need to end the club’s 58-year wait for a Championship title.
But why then, if they have everything they need to end that long wait, did Wolves suffer the largest collapse ever seen in a Super League Grand Final?
“We don’t need anything extra to win it, it is fine line stuff,” he said.
“First half we got off to a flyer, but knowing how good Wigan are we knew we needed to do the same in the second half.
“Obviously, we didn’t do that and their try before half time was crucial.
“I think we knew that if we could hold them we would break them, but they managed to get in.
“Then we lost key players in key positions, Joel and Stef, but we can make as many of those excuses up as we like, Wigan are now champions.”
Despite a lack of silverware Wolves should look back on this year with some pride, as a further franking of their status as one of the best teams in the league.
But the emotion after a Grand Final loss means that it is too soon for players to think like this, the wounds are still too raw.
Instead it is easier to focus on what they did wrong, and with it being the last game of the season they have plenty of time to stew over the result.
“Every time you lose a final it is heartbreaking,” said Myler, who is awaiting scan results to see if he will be fit to represent England Knights against Samoa next Saturday at the Salford City Stadium.
“It is the worst feeling in the world. I’m not sure if you could see this on the TV, but there were tears, emotions running high.
“To get so close and then come up short was heartbreaking and now we have a long time to dwell on this.
“There is no game next week and instead we have to go away, train hard and go again next year.”
