Phil Clarke slams Super League side’s “terrible attack”

Rugby league and especially Super League is home to some of the most entertaining sport you will see especially because of what teams can do in attack. Whether it is Wigan Warriors’ dynamic duo of Jai Field and Bevan French, Rohan Smith’s unique style at Leeds Rhinos, St Helens’ class of Salford Red Devils’ ball movement, so many Super League sides are simply brilliant to watch.

Now there are two sides to every game and defence is of course a bedrock of every Champion side but you can never rely on yourselves to nil your opponents every week which makes scoring points vitally important.

At the start of the season there was one side scoring a lot more points than anyone else and that was the Warrington Wolves.

They started the season in Round One racking up the points against the previous season’s Grand Finalists Leeds Rhinos.

They scored plenty of points against Leigh Leopards and Castleford Tigers as they stormed to top spot and eight wins in a row to start the season but things have stalled for the Wolves recently and they have been in indifferent form week to week losing to the Tigers and Hull FC as well as Leeds Rhinos in a game when they struggled for points.

This led Phil Clarke on Sky Sports to label their attack as “terrible” and criticise them for “passing the ball but going nowhere, it’s just chain passing.”

Now it is important to remember that Warrington were without star player George Williams and are missing a lot of their middles who provide their platform.

They also had to play Matt Dufty at stand-off in a difficult day at the office for the Wolves.
