Workington Town vice-captain Jamie Doran believes Sunday’s stunning 24-18 win at Odsal to seal the double over Bradford Bulls was the best performance in his time at the club.

It was Doran’s try in the 68th minute, converted by Carl Forber, which leveled the scores against the Bulls before Sean Penkywicz crossed the whitewash seven minutes later for another converted try to win.

Doran said: “They’re a Super League team in my eyes and we’ve beaten them home and away which is a great achievement.

“Over the last 15 years or whatever they were probably the best team in the world at one point and things have gone on since but they’re still a brilliant team.

“We were absolutely buzzing after the final whistle, in the dressing room and at the side of the pitch with the fans.

“It’s up there with the best I’ve had at Workington and I think it was 70 years without a win at Bradford. So when you consider that it probably is the best.”

Bulls coach John Kear referred to the experience in Workington’s side as a key factor and said they “old-manned” his team, but Doran argued it was a team effort from every player, young or old, which got them over the line against the title favourites.

Doran said: “Having people like Fuifui [Moimoi] who is an international and Penky, who for me is a world class player, helps but I think it was down to all of us and the heart we had.

“It didn’t matter if you were a young lad or had been around for 20 years. I thought we were the better team on the day and I thought we outplayed them at home too.

“There was no pressure on our shoulders so we came in thinking we had nothing to lose.

“We went out there as a family and gave our all and one to 17 were outstanding.”
