Kurt Gidley had a varied game for Warrington on Maundy Thursday.
The experienced Australian started at scrum-half and was switched to hooker for a spell and the way he took to the number nine role impressed Tony Smith.
“I thought Gids was good. I thought he looked really good at hooker. I thought he controlled that really well when he went in there.
“He gave us a bit of control in there that we needed at the time and a bit of variation. At times I didn’t think we played enough footy, but I thought Gids just broke that up a bit.”
Looking forward to Monday and the visit of Huddersfield Giants to the Halliwell Jones Stadium, Mike Cooper and Daryl Clark have an outside chance of playing as they look to shake off ankle and calf issues while Joe Westerman’s neck is also under assessment.
Knocks to both Ryan Atkins and Matty Russell have ruled them out of contention.
