Coach Quotes

Ahead of Friday’s fixture against Warrington, Matt Peet said: “You have to prepare for the best of them. Their energy and effort against St Helens last week was right up there and they’ll be looking to build on that.

“It should be a fantastic clash for everyone involved, including the spectators.”

The Warriors Head Coach also spoke on Heritage Round: “The Heritage evening is everything we’re about as a Club. It’s a good night for us to nod our heads in thanks and gratitude for those that have gone before us and a big celebration of the Club from top to bottom.”
