Coaches Quotes

Matt Peet spoke to the press earlier this week ahead of the Warriors’ trip to the Salford Stadium.

He said: “The challenge now is to put that [the Betfred Challenge Cup Final] to the back of our minds whilst we focus on Salford although it’s great to have that excitement in the background.

On Sunday’s clash, Peet said: “I know we’ll be tested. It’s easy to see where their threats come because they’re an outstanding attacking team – we’re going to have to be at our best defensively to contain them.”
