Now let's get the main prize!

PROUD Underbank boss Richard Knight has admitted he would gladly give back his Conference National Coach of the Year award if it could guarantee Grand Final success over Kippax Knights on Sunday.

The Rangers player-coach sends his side into battle at Warrington's Halliwell Jones Stadium (11am) determined to lift the trophy for the first time after losing in the Final for the past two seasons.

Underbank did collect the League Leaders Shield - something that was at the heart of Knight picking up his individual gong - after losing just one game during the regular campaign.

But Knight knows the most important piece of silverware is up for grabs on Sunday as Rangers look to gain revenge for their play-off defeat at the hands of the Knights 12 days ago.

"It's an absolute honour to collect the Coach of the Year award," said Knight.

"But the prize we've been working towards from day one is the Grand Final trophy, so I'd gladly swap my award for the one at stake on Sunday!"
