Price wants Wire response

22nd July 2019, 02:02 by Michael Holland

Steve Price is backing Warrington to bounce back from defeat against Castleford when they face Hull FC in the Challenge Cup semi-final.

The Wire were far from their best when going down 27-18 against the Tigers in the jungle but will need to picked themselves up quickly for the clash with Hull FC.

"It was a difficult game to take to be honest. It wasn't one of our better displays," Price said. "I think we had 16 errors for the whole game. When you are dishing up that amount you are never going to give yourself a chance."

Price also refused to blame the upcoming Hull game for the defeat, and insists all their focus was on the Tigers clash.

"We haven't spoken about the semi-final," he added. "Our focus was on Castleford (today) and I thought for the majority of the game we were in the arm wrestle and then lost our way a bit at the back end of the game, with frustration building.

"There are couple of things we need to address and a new competition for us next week.

"We have a footy team there, keep believing we are still not too bad on the points table. I have the utmost belief in the playing group that they will put in a strong performance on Saturday against a really good team in Hull FC."
