Warrington Wolves chief slams club’s performances

Warrington Wolves chief executive Karl Fitzpatrick has pulled no punches when discussing the club’s performances in 2021.

The Wolves finished third in the Super League table but exited the play-offs at the first time of asking as Hull KR pulled off a miraculous 19-0 away win.

For, Fitzpatrick, those performances and how the season ended just weren’t good enough for a club that has the aspirations that Warrington have.

“It simply wasn’t good enough,” Fitzpatrick told the Through The Wire podcast.

“Fortunately we had already made a lot of changes before that and Daryl (new head coach Daryl Powell) put his stall out early doors – supporters have begun to realise what a Daryl Powell team will look like.”

The Warrington CEO waxed lyrical about the former Castleford boss’ ability to improve players in all aspects.

“You look at the development of players under Daryl, he’s helped to create three Men of Steel.

“I’ve thought players are on their way down, have joined Castleford and they have actually improved.

“I’m looking forward to seeing him improve the players and the philosophy that Daryl will work on with the players.”

But, Fitzpatrick knows it will be no easy ride for the Wire players.

“Daryl is very ruthless, hopefully that will come across in the meetings with players – he won’t take any messing about.

“I’m really excited about what the new group of players and coaches can deliver.”
