Great to get try but better if we had won final, says retiring Workington Town ace

An emotional Neil Frazer said goodbye with a super try in front of the Workington Town faithful yesterday but admitted he wished he had gone out with a win.
Frazer said it was great to be able to bow out of the game at a Grand Final but victory would have made it much sweeter.
However, he admitted a final try was a fitting way to step aside, after a 14-year career in the game.
“It was great to get to the final but it would have been nicer if we had won,” said Frazer, who celebrated his testimonial at Workington last season.
“But I can’t really complain, I have had 14 years and have loved most of it and it was nice to score in front of the crowd.”
Frazer said Town were just not quick enough out of the blocks to clinch the win over Keighley.
“The last few games we have played so well, we started really fast and got on top but today we just didn’t seem to be at the races,” said the winger.
“We started slowly and Keighley started quickly and they kept completing. Jy-Mel Coleman could have been wearing a dinner suit, he just controlled the game.”
Frazer paid special tribute to the club’s fans who he said have been fantastic to him over the years.
“The fans have been fantastic and I can’t thank them enough, the response I got at the final whistle was overwhelming,” he added.
