Liam Marshall finished with two tries

Liam Marshall's first of two tries swung the game from 4-0 down to 8-4 in the Warriors' favour, after the video referee ruled his marker had tackled him in the air.

"I think it was. It was," said Radford. "I've no issues with that."

"It's a tough one to take, a second game in five days to be pipped at the final hurdle. But we need to box cleverer over the 80 minutes," said Radford.

"The effort, I can't knock. But we need to play smarter."
