“I think we’re in a good place” – Daryl Powell explains Warrington Wolves’ defeat to Leeds Rhinos

Tonight Warrington were blown away by Leeds 40-4 in a shocking defeat for the Wolves which had fans booing at half time and throughout the second half.

After the game, coach Daryl Powell told Sky Sports that it hurt badly.

“It hurts like hell,” Powell told Jenna Brooks, “I thought Leeds were excellent tonight. I think we’re up and down.

“We’re training pretty well but it hasn’t translated to a performance tonight.

“In the second half we had 11 sets and completed 4, you won’t win any game like that. Some key lessons for us.

“We’re on a journey, I understand the fans frustrations. The frustrating thing is you see a pretty good effort against St Helens and that tonight was clearly not good enough. We’ve got a lot to improve from a consistency point of view.”

He did however insist that the Wolves were in a good place: “I think we’re in a good place. I think we’ve had some difficulties. I think we’re aligned now and headed in the right direction. Today is a big bump in the road and we can’t let this derail us. We’re in a positive frame of mind.”

He also stated that he still believes that Warrington can make the play-offs.

“I still think we can, I’m certain we can. We’ll have to be better than that.”
