The Wolves have made a great start to their 2016 season with six wins from their six games so far, with calls being made for the club to be the league’s frontrunners for the Super League title.
However, despite the great start, Atkins is adamant that him and his teammates have yet to hit top form just yet and there is more to come from the Wolves.
“We’re six from six and we’re going well but we’re still not firing on all cylinders and that’s the scary thing,” Atkins told the Warrington Guardian.
“We’ve not put in a full, 80-minute performance yet. We had a great first half against Castleford and we took our foot off the gas a little bit in the second half. Once we do put a full 80-minute performance in, it’s scary what we will do and we will blow someone away.”
Atkins has also been quick to credit his head coach and the club for the recruitment that has been done in the off-season.
“There’s a lot of competition for places so Tony Smith and the board have done a great job of getting the squad together,” he said.
“You need to play well in every game with this squad. Tony has made it clear that whether you’ve played a thousand Super League games or two, your position is not safe.
“There’s people champing at the bit to take your position off you so credit has to go to the club for building such a strong squad.”
