Pre-match Quotes

The Warriors head to Saints with plenty of confidence after a good start to 2023 and Cailey Miller will be hoping to take to the field for her first ever Derby day after making her Club debut last time out following a lengthy injury spell.

Speaking ahead of the game, Cailey Miller said: “Derby Day is always such an important game for the team and Club. I’m expecting a physical game from a side like St Helens, we will have to dig deep and show our resilience, but I have no doubt our team are ready to compete with them.”
