Wolves not at best – yet

Michael Monaghan believes Warrington have been far from their best this season and can improve considerably.

This does not bode well for the rest of Super League as Warrington are second in the table and into the semi-finals of the Challenge Cup.

Monaghan, 32, told Love Rugby League: “To be honest we haven’t been that good so far. Our performances have been ordinary and patchy. We have had a lot of injuries and it took us a while to find our feet at the start of the season.

“We’ve been getting the job done and in the last month we’ve started to show a bit of consistency.”

This was shown by last weekend’s win at Wakefield. A depleted Wolves side breezed to a 42-12 victory over a team who were very threatening at the Halliwell Jones earlier in the season. Stefan Ratchford was in superb form on his comeback from injury and Monaghan was full of praise for him.

“Stef was great. It is a big positive having him back he is an important player for the squad – he can play almost anywhere.”

Monaghan himself is one of the key players on the substantial Warrington injury list at the moment, but he sent out a warning to the rest of Super League:

“We’re in a good position with a lot of people coming back and we will keep improving.

“Also, most of the top eight clubs have to come to the Halliwell Jones in the second-half of the season.”
