Warrington coach Steve Price was impressed with Kevin Brown and Josh Charnley in their win at Salford.
The Wolves put in a hard-working display to beat Salford Red Devils 22-6 at the AJ Bell Stadium on Saturday.
And Price was pleased with his sides performance, but picked out former England duo Brown and Charnley out for praise.
He said: “I thought Kev Brown was outstanding defensively out there.
“What he’s doing on and off the ball is what we have been striving for since November; about being tough and resilient. He showed it in spades. I’m happy with how Kev is evolving.
“Josh, too, has been terrific from day one. He’s a really good guy.
“He’s a winner and understands what it takes to be a team player and has shown it in spades; passing the ball back inside to Toby (King) for the first try. He fights for every play the ball and that’s what we are trying to grow in our footy club.”
Warrington have won their last five games and are currently third in the Betfred Super League table. They are level on points with second-placed Wigan Warriors and four points behind leaders St Helens.
But Price isn’t getting ahead of himself just yet.
He added: “We are slowly building into the team we can be.
“We are showing it in a lot of areas, but we understand there are areas we need to improve. There are glimpses of it and we are heading in the right direction.
“There’s still a lot of footy to be played and if we keep displaying those types of performances then the big picture will take care of itself.”
Price revealed Toby King had pulled his hamstring and will have a scan this week. Mike Cooper is also in doubt for Saturday’s game against Hull Kingston Rovers after taking a knock to the elbow.
