Steve Price: ‘The scoreline wasn’t a fair reflection on Warrington’

Steve Price said Warrington could have beat Wigan Warriors by at least 24 points.

The Wolves were 8-0 up at the break thanks to a try from Tom Lineham and two goals from Bryson Goodwin.

A try from Ryan Atkins and two further goals from Goodwin put Warrington 16-0 ahead. Liam Marshall and Tony Clubb scored in the final quarter for Wigan but it wasn’t enough as the Wolves ran-out 16-10 winners.

Speaking after the game, Price said: “I thought we dominated the true value of the game for the 80 minutes.

“The scoreline wasn’t a reflection of the game, especially with the first half and the amount of possession we had, I thought we should have come away with a few more points.

“We had a missed opportunity just before half time and we dropped the ball just before the try-line. We created another opportunity straight after half time and I felt like it should have been above 24 points but it wasn’t to be.

“Wigan are a quality football team, they have been a top four Super League club for a lot of years now and it was good to come away and get the result.”

Price was impressed by the displays of Mike Cooper, Sitaleki Akauola and Goodwin.

He added: “I thought there were a lot of good performances.

“Mike Cooper played 60 minutes straight which was a big effort and Sitaleki Akauola, playing his first game for the club, showed a lot of good signs. Bryson Goodwin was nice and aggressive on the left edge but it was a good team performance.

“The more times Tyrone (Roberts) and Daryl Clark play with Stefan (Ratchford) then I think we are only going to get better over the coming weeks.”

England duo Ben Currie and Kevin Brown left the field during the game and did not return to action after picking up leg and head injuries respectively.

But Price revealed that he doesn’t think they are serious injuries.

  1. Correct, scoreline was not a fair reflection of the game.
    Leeds could have said exactly the same v Warrington, and maybe Widnes.
