“We’ve already secured top four finishes and the playoffs in the last three seasons,” McNamara said. A club that was labeled a misfit, the last three years have seen us find some consistency.”

“We’re disappointed to finish fourth and not first or second, but it shows really strong progress for this club and the game in France.

“We now go to Wigan (before) the play-offs and, as we saw with other teams today, we will use our squad to the fullest. We have to take care of ourselves.”

With a big few weeks ahead, head coach Ian Watson has made three changes to his squad to face Wakefield with Chris McQueen, Michael Lawrence and Sebastian Ikahihifo.

However, they will still be without midfielder Theo Faggs, who remains on the sidelines.

Despite being assured of a high finish, Watson has already warned his team that they need to improve if they are to challenge for a place in the grand final.

“It’s a lesson for us,” Watson said. If we go into a playoff game and play like that for 40 minutes, we’ll turn around.”

“There were probably people who thought we had done the job. They were happy with it. But as a team and as a club we cannot be happy about it. We have to be a ruthless team.

“At the beginning of the season we played 80 minutes, now we play 40 minutes. That’s why we reached the final of the Challenge Cup.

“But we drew at home, which means we’ll finish third or fourth, which is great for our development. Now we have to seize the opportunity.”
