he told 

Sky Sports


“We didn’t expect it but eventually they had good sense and it was the right thing to do. Everyone who loves football didn’t support the Super League including our players so we’re happy now that it’s turned around, but it was a surprise. 

"It’s a tough situation, we wanted to find out from the people at the top of the club to see the reasons why they are there with the other clubs. 

“We wanted to come out and say we are against it but we had to have a chat among the players and we all agreed to wait for the club statement. We are happy in the end because football wins.”
