Harrison wary of Widnes attacking threat

Warrington forward Ben Harrison believes that the Wolves will need to be defensively sharp when they play Widnes at home on Sunday.

Harrison is wary of the attacking talents in the Vikings’ backline, as well as their powerful forwards.

“Widnes are a very talented side,” he said.

“They’ve got some great players that are in some fantastic form. The likes of Kevin Brown, Rhys Hanbury and a big set of forwards that get them around the park quite well.

“So we’re going to be very vigilant, and we’re going to have to do a very good job, and respect what they can do with the ball.

“They had a tough game against St Helens, and the scoreline didn’t flatter them as well as it should have.

“They performed quite well and they had a decent effort. Saints got a couple of tries that made the scoreline look a little bit more favourable to them than the game actually was.

“But they’re playing some really good football, and we’re going to have to be on the top of our defensive game to neutralise the threats they pose.”

In last week’s win over Leeds, Harrison pulled off a cheeky chip kick which led to a try. He hinted that fans may see some similar skills again at a later stage of the season.

“Now I think I can do it, I might risk my arm and try it again,” he smiled.
