Warrington coach Steve Price excited for Super League to return

Warrington coach Steve Price can’t wait to get back to work and for Super League to return in August.

The Super League season will resume on August 2, with Hull KR-Toronto, St Helens-Catalans and Huddersfield-Leeds being played as a triple-header at a single behind closed doors venue.

Warrington are aiming to return to training on July 20, which will see them have a three-week mini pre-season before their first game back.

Wolves coach Price said: “The boys and I are really excited to get back playing now as are all of my coaching staff. We can’t wait to get back to work and get amongst each other and have a bit of banter.

“We certainly missed that amongst each other. Just getting back to playing rugby again and putting smiles on people’s faces. I can’t wait and I know the players are in that same situation.

“The first two weeks will look like a mini pre-season. It’s important that the guys come back in really good shape the best they can with the limited resources they have had over this time.

“I’m regularly trying to find out when our full schedule will be released because it is critical to our planning but at the moment we can only just plan for three weeks because I still don’t know the days of the games and when they will be allocated.

“It’ll be quite intense, especially the first two weeks, but we’ve got to be smart too. We’re going to be diligent in how we how we train the players – we’ve seen in the NRL there’s been a spike of injuries between rounds five and seven. It’s not what you do at the start it’s what you do at your highest peak which is roughly around week four and week seven so planning is going to be really critical.”
