Warrington Wolves may have started the season with an impressive win over Leeds Rhinos but a player who spent last season with the Wolves Kyle Amor has his questions about the Wolves even after that win.
The prop wants to see the Wolves tested soon which could come tonight against the Huddersfield Giants.
He said on the 5 Live Podcast: “In terms of Warrington seriously challenging I want to see them under the pump and on the back foot against a top side. Are they able to defend it all or are they all just offensive players? Can they cope with offensive pressure when the blow torch is on them?”
Meanwhile, Super League winning coach Brian Noble believes the Wolves could compete in 2023:
“I think Warrington will be a huge challenge this year. Their middles have been struggling for a number of years but I think they’ve resolved that. They’ve got a Super League superstar in the making in Paul Vaughan.
“Any time you get Wigan against Saints you’re always going to have that equation, it comes to down to desire of who can win.
“Hull will be a lot more consistent than they’ve been over the last few years in relation to probably not falling off the cliff.
“Saints will still be the challenge and if I’m one of the people trying to sharpen the knife etc I’m going to think that when it matters, how do we beat that team Saints because they’re the ones to beat.
“Of all the headline makers over the weekend though I think Warrington will go the closest to Saints.”
