Chambers: Milner a calming influence for Warrington Wolves on his return from serious injury
5:30pm Sunday 17th February 2013 in Wolves news
GARY Chambers was pleased to see his Warrington Wolves academy side gain their first win from three attempts in the inaugural under 19s campaign.
Wolves defeated Featherstone Rovers 42-18 at Wilderspool on Saturday, following on from defeats at Wigan and at home to Castleford.
“It was a very good win for us and will give the lads great encouragement to get a win under their belts,” said the under 19s head coach and former Warrington prop.
“We made some small improvements on our previous two performances and if we can continue to take the things we are working on in training into games then we will be ok.
“We were made to work hard for the full 80 minutes by a good hard working Featherstone side. We were punished for a couple of errors in quick succession midway through the first half but we managed to handle that and we bounced back well.
“We had a very young team again but they are gaining very valuable experience about how to cope at this level and it will put them in good stead for the rest of the year and beyond.”
He added: “It was really good to have Will Milner back in the side for the first time since picking up a serious injury at Hull FC eight months ago. He did really well, guiding us round the field and was the calming influence that we have needed.
“Jimmy Rowland also had an excellent game and took his two tries superbly while Sam Wilde showed lots of enthusiasm and effort on his first appearance.
“We will now prepare well during the week for our trip to Hull FC next Saturday, kick off 2.30pm at Bishop Burton College.”
