Steve Price hails “special” player as he sweats on injury to key man

Jake Mamo crossed for his first hat-trick in Warrington colours in the Wolves’ 40-14 demolition of Wigan, and head coach Steve Price waxed lyrical about the centre’s performance.

“He (Mamo) brings that energy on a daily basis to training and I’ve really enjoyed coaching Jake because he’s a good person and he’s making a really good fist of it within our team,” Price said.

“Hopefully his interview after the game isn’t too out there! He’s a valuable member of our team and all the boys love him.

“He brings something different to our team and that’s what makes him so special.”

The Warrington boss was happy with how his side went against a “desperate” Wigan.

“It was a really solid performance, they had lost three on the bounce so they were really desperate, but I’m just ecstatic for the boys – we’ve put 40 plus points on them.

“They started the game strong but I’m really pleased defensively – we hit a bit of a flat spot in the second-half, but we battled back and got good field position.

“You need to have calm heads and we’ve been displaying that, all 17 contributed to the performance.”

Price also had kind words to say about youngsters Connor Wrench and Josh Thewlis, who impressed.

“They’re still only young and only have a couple of games under the belt.

“I was really pleased with Connor – he ran with purpose and intent to beat people tonight, he had a number of line breaks and I thought josh played really tough tonight, he got knocked around a bit.”

Daryl Clark did go off injured, but Price was keen to stress it doesn’t look that bad.

“Daz Clark tweaked a bit of a groin so we will have to check on him during the week, but hopefully he’s not too bad.”
