Marshall not watching record books as Warrington Wolves seek 10th win
RICHARD Marshall insists Wolves are not watching the record books as they go in search of a 10th successive win.
Should they beat bottom side London Broncos at The Halliwell Jones Stadium on Sunday, Warrington would equal their longest winning run since the 1986-87 season.
But first team coach Marshall says the coaching staff are more interested in staying consistent than setting any records.
“It doesn’t get talked about nine, 10, whatever in a row but what does get talked about is working had for each other,” he said.
“What it is, is an indication of us being consistent which we weren’t at the beginning of the year, as a by-product of that we have actually rattled up nine wins.
“Obviously we’d like that to continue, but it could be difficult to go unbeaten for the rest of the year when you’ve got the Challenge Cup and the play-offs.”
Marshall used the performance against Broncos in March as an indication of how far Wolves have progresse this season.
“What we’re looking for is, well let’s look at the performance against London, we play them this week, we played them in March and we were getting beat at half time,” he explained.
“We rattled up a few points in the second half, but that performance wasn’t great and it can come on any day where you’ve just go to turn up and keep working.
“We are confident at the minute and we are playing some attractive football, but last week wasn’t at Hull, it was throwing it down and for us to grind out a win in those conditions was really pleasing.”
Broncos have lost 19 Super League games on the bounce, 21 including the end of last season, but Marshall is confident Wolves will show no signs of complacency.
“They’ve improved over the course of the season,” he added. “They play really enthusiastically and they’re trying really, really hard.
“Sometimes that can be a downfall as you’re trying things that aren’t quite on – we’re treating them with a great deal of respect this week.
“We want to keep putting pressure on those teams at the top of the league and keep ticking over nicely, so it’s important that we do that week.
“They’ll be looking to win a game at some point and hopefully that won’t be this week. We need to maintain our consistency and our performances right through to the end of the year.”
