Rugby League: SAINT IAN IN DREAMLAND.

St Helens coach Ian Millward hailed his team's 'unreal' achievement after they added the Silk Cut Challenge Cup at Twickenham yesterday to the Super League and World Club titles already secured.

'It is a special time,' he said. 'To win these three trophies is unreal.'

It was a low-scoring final at Twickenham, but St Helens were strong in defence in the second half and held on to beat Bradford Bulls 13-6.

'I'm really proud of the guys,' he told BBC1. 'There were only two points against us in the second half.

'We played differently today, but it was the way to win.'

Man of the match Sean Long, whose short grubber kicks gave Tommy Martyn and Kieron Cunningham tries in the first half, said he had never endured a more tense second half.

'It's all tense in the Challenge Cup final, but we got the win and that's the main thing,' he said. 'It was a very tough game and all credit to Bradford for that.
