SHAUN Wane has hailed Pat Richards as better than Frano Botica as he closed in on the Kiwi’s point-scoring haul.

Aussie winger Richards – who has scored 1,927 for the Warriors – needs just five points to edge beyond Botica into third place on the club’s all-time points-scoring chart.

He could achieve the scoring feat at Bradford tomorrow.

And coach Wane said: “I played with Frano and he worked at his kicking all the time, and Pat’s the same. They’ve got very similar traits. Frano is a legend at this club – and Pat will be too.”

Asked who he thought was the best, Wane replied: “I’m going to go with Paddy.”
