“I really enjoy working with him” – Steve Price hails hat-trick hero Jake Mamo after Warrington win

Jake Mamo

Warrington coach Steve Price singled out hat-trick hero Jake Mamo for special praise following their 40-14 win at Wigan.

It was the first time since July 2017 that Warrington have won at the home of one of their closest rivals and it was a hugely impressive performance. They raced into an 18-0 lead before scoring three tries in the final quarter to quash a potential Warriors comeback, with Mamo grabbing a hat-trick.

Price said: “Jake Mamo brings that energy on a daily basis to training and I really enjoy working with him.

“He is a really good guy and all the boys love him. I think he has got a huge amount of speed but I was pleased with his defence too.”

Warrington extended their winning run to four games, and Price was delighted with his side’s overall performance at Wigan.

He added: “It was a really solid performance. I’m ecstatic for the boys to put on 40 points. We hit a bit of a flat spot in the second half but we found a way to get some energy back.

“There was a lot of intent in our actions. We showed a lot of calmness when pressure was put on us. It was a really good performance with all 17 players contributing.

“Our challenge is to keep improving and keep our feet on the ground. The games are coming thick and fast.”
