THE Wolves squad are still aiming to compete at the top of Super League despite their poor start, stand-off Kevin Brown says.
Having lost all four of their games so far, The Wire are bottom of Super League and are already eight points behind leaders Castleford and Wigan.
This comes after a 2016 season in which Wolves won the League Leaders’ Shield and reached both major finals.
Some observers have drawn comparisons with the poor campaigns had by perennial challengers Leeds and Huddersfield in 2016, but Brown was quick to put them to bed.
The 32-year-old also called on the Wolves supporters to stick with the team as they strive to ignite their season, starting with the trip to Leigh Centurions tonight, Thursday.
“We’re not giving any thought to comparisons with Leeds and Huddersfield whatsoever,” he said.
“I’m still confident that everything we’ve set out to do is still achievable. We want to be up there competing for all three trophies again and I know we can still do that.
“We’re getting some senior players back now and that will help us to start putting right the things we have done wrong, starting tonight.
“We’re massively disappointed, we’re hurting as a group and we feel that same frustration the fans are feeling.
“I am still confident we are going to be there or thereabouts so I’d ask them to stick with us.
“We’re doing everything we can and we’re confident we will turn this around soon.”
