Coaches Quotes

Speaking to the press on Wednesday afternoon, Matt Peet said: “This is one of those fixtures we know is always going to be a tough challenge and it’s one that we single out as a mentality test.”

Peet added: “I think everyone’s been happy to see Wakefield looking more like they have in the past. [David] Fifita has brought a lot and I don’t think their commitment in defence has ever been questioned. Nobody wants to see teams consistently not doing well so it’s nice to see them pick up a few wins in recent weeks.”
