Wire boss fires rallying call

18th February 2020, 00:27 by Michael Holland

Warrington head coach Steve Price says his side must forget about the defeat to Wakefield Trinity and get ready to go again.

Wire looked on course for the victory as they were leading early in the second half as Stefan Ratchford scored and then converted a try, but Trinity came fighting back to take the 18-8 win.

Price was disappointed but says it is still very early days and quickly turned his attention to the forthcoming clash against Toronto Wolfpack, where he wants a response.

"I know what team we've got here and they're a great bunch of lads," he said. "It's early days and it's a long season. We'll dust ourselves off and go again next week. It's important we learn some valuable lessons out of today's game.

"We've got to take responsibility for how we played today. We've got to grow as a team and I'm confident we'll do that."

Wire also handed a debut to new signing Gareth Widdop and Price says there is plenty more to come from him once he has settled in.

"It was his first hit out and it's always going to take a bit of time," Price added. "It wasn't a typical half-back's game today but he'll be better for the run. I know what type of player he is and he's a quality Rugby League player."
