“I’m frustrated, disappointed and a bit angry,” admitted Stone.

“Before I start, I’ll just give full credit to the opposition: they were good. But when playing at home in front of your family and friends, your fans and members, you’ve got to turn up and put in a better performance than that.

“We needed to mix things up a bit in attack and get some variety.”

Australian full-back Jake Mamo was missing after straining a hamstring in training on Monday. He will be doubtful for Friday’s trip to Wigan Warriors.
