Coaches Quotes

Matt Peet spoke to the press on Wednesday afternoon ahead of Leigh’s visit.

He said: “It’s been an intense season so far so it was important that the players and staff had time off before coming back fresh and re-energised.

“[Friday night] will be as intense as every other game against Leigh has been since their promotion which means we’ll have to be at our best.”
