Price: Previous records mean nothing this year

Warrington Wolves Head Coach Steve Price has played down their previous record against Hull FC ahead of the playoffs.

The Wire have faced Hull FC twice in 2020, winning both games. The first saw a thumping 34-6 victory at the KCOM Stadium in their final game before the first lockdown. Meanwhile, the second saw them record a 37-12 victory when they had seven out due to COVID related reasons.

Since then, Hull seem to have hit form at the right time, and won five of their final seven matches after the 37-12 defeat in Warrington.

Despite this, Price says his only focus is the upcoming match.

He said: “We cannot control what has happened before this week. What we can do is Thursday night at 7.45 for 80 minutes.

“That’s what we have driven towards with all our focus.”

Price has also praised his side for the consistency they have shown this year despite everything and backs them to find that extra gear on Thursday.

He added: “I have been really proud of the guys this year. They love coming to train and we have had some good times. We are looking forward to Thursday-we have a really good opportunity to put a good foot forward.

“I am very proud to coach this team, they are extremely hard working, and have been really consistent. We are the second best defensive team, just five points ahead of St Helens.

“We just need to raise the bar and keep chasing that perfect wave we are after.”
