Daryl Powell’s first interview as Warrington coach

When Daryl Powell signed for Warrington Wolves as the new head coach at the beginning of the 2021 Super League season, eyebrows were raised.

Having been at the Castleford Tigers for almost nine years, the Pontefract man decided to up sticks and join one of the furthest clubs away from West Yorkshire in the top flight.

And, Powell has now conducted his first interview as Warrington boss, detailing how he can improve the side.

“Every team has its strengths and weaknesses whether that’s individually or collectively,” Powell said.

“There are a couple of key areas that need tweaking, our attacking threat from 20 metres out for example.

“I’ve been renowned for that as a coach in the past, it’s a key area to get the detail and timing right.

“It’s tough because teams are coming at you aggressively, but the system that I’ve worked with in the past has been very successful and I look forward to implementing that.”

Powell was also keen to enhance the attacking flair within the Warrington squad given the disconnect between fans and the club in recent times.

“I want to take a little bit of pressure off the players and break the game down.

“We will play a completely different way to how we have played in the past.

“I want Warrington fans to be excited when they come down, one of my passions is to fill the stadium every week.”
