Price happy with one point and growth from Hull draw

Warrington Wolves Head Coach Steve Price was proud of the effort from his team but regretted their execution as they played out a draw with Hull FC at the KCOM stadium.

It was the very first time a match has finished all square after golden point extra-time, with neither team able to edge home, despite multiple field-goal attempts.

Looking back on the game, Price admitted, “I thought there was a huge amount of spirit and fighting in the boys today.

“It was a tough game of footy and they were up for the fight.

“They have been playing good footy of late. We put ourselves in a position to win the game and I thought we could have executed better.

“We might need another look at the video but defensively there was a big improvement.

“We had opportunities at a field-goal but that is how it goes.

“Overall, we will take the one point and some growth out of this game today.”

The Wolves looked all but set for a defeat as Hull led 14-8 with only seconds remaining before Jake Mamo broke through and scored on the final play.

Gareth Widdop converted to take the game to extra-time, but it was Mamo who stole all the plaudits from his boss.

“It was a fantastic individual effort by Jake Mamo,” Price added.

“We had our chances and it is something to learn from.

“We have been pretty good in golden point with our field-goals and you get them and sometimes you do not.

“We will keep working hard at it and hopefully next time, we will get it right.

“We can now lick our wounds and be ready for Catalans next week.”
