Coach Quotes

Matt Peet told the press on Tuesday morning that the Warriors must expect a response from Huddersfield, who suffered a 54-0 defeat to Leeds Rhinos last time out.

Peet said: “We have to prepare for the best in Huddersfield and to anticipate a much improved outfit. They’ve had a tough few weeks, but they have high quality players who can threaten and a coach who is very determined. We are very aware of what we’ll face on Friday night.”
