Phil Clarke says Super League side are “very lucky” they are playing this club next

Over the Magic Weekend, Warrington Wolves lost their position at the top of the Super League table.

Daryl Powell’s side started the weekend top of the Betfred Super League but by the end of it were behind Catalans Dragons due to their defeat to Hull FC.

It is two defeats in a row for the Wolves now who have been inconsistent since their eight game winning run ended.

However, Phil Clarke has now branded them as “very lucky” to be playing Huddersfield Giants next as he sees it as the perfect game for the Wolves to get back on track as they take on the struggling Giants who were mauled by St Helens this week:

“I was right on that performance but I’m not saying their season is crumbling but the cracks are appearing.

“Their season isn’t completely over and I think they’re very lucky that their next game is against Huddersfield Giants and that gives them a reasonably good chance of winning if they were playing a high flying team at the moment then I think they’d struggle.

“They haven’t been brilliant recently. George Williams has been brilliant, so has Paul Vaughan but they don’t look like a brilliant team enough this season.”

Barrie McDermott added:

“Against Leigh it was in the final quarter when heads slumped and we saw that body language and it cost them.

“Today, it was probably on 41, 42, 43 minutes when it went and the game went away from them and it was lost.”
