Steve Price: The best is yet to come from Warrington

Warrington coach Steve Price insists his side still have plenty of areas to improve on before they reach their potential.

The Wolves continued their impressive start to the season on Friday as they beat rivals Wigan Warriors 25-12 at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.

Warrington have won five out of their opening six games of the season and sit second in the Super League table.

Speaking after their win over Wigan, Price said: “The boys showed a huge amount of resilience and backbone following on from last year and we played some really good footy in patches.

“We had a really good opportunity to go 24-0 when we were 18-0 ahead and we could have closed the game out but credit to Wigan, they had a red-hot crack. Our boys hung in there tough, we stayed in the fight and to get the win was very pleasing.

“There are still certain aspects of the game where we can be better.

“Daryl Clark was outstanding. Jack Hughes, Jason Clark and Stefan Ratchford were also really good, and I was impressed with them.

“Jason Clark has been pretty consistent for us so far and has been chipping away. He has down a lot of the dirty work for us, which certainly doesn’t go unnoticed from us at the club.”

Wigan forward Willie Isa was sin-binned late in the game for a dangerous challenge, with Warrington half-back Declan Patton also receiving a yellow card for retaliating. Wolves veteran Ben Westwood was sent-off after a fight occurred following Isa’s challenge.

On Westwood’s red card, Price added: “I didn’t see it, I was down on the sideline and I couldn’t get my head around what was going on.

“But Wigan-Warrington games always have a fair bit going on. The game certainly lived up to the hype throughout the week.”

Price confirmed there are no fresh injury concerns for Warrington.
