Warrington Wolves captain hopes lessons have been learned ahead of Leeds visit
ADRIAN Morley believes Wolves will need to carry the lessons learned from their defeat to Hull KR into the remainder of the season, starting with the visit of reigning champions Leeds Rhinos tomorrow, Friday, kick off 8pm.
Wolves’ captain has told of his side’s surprise and disappointment after they let slip a 22-6 half-time lead in Hull but hopes that they can turn that sow’s ear of a performance into a silk purse.
“If you would have told us at half time that we would have lost by that score, it would have been met with disbelief,” said Morley.
“KR played the conditions much better and we let the game slip away, so it was a hard lesson learned really.
“But you have to learn from every loss and every victory, too, and last week was another important lesson in our quest to become a title-winning side.
“We’ll learn our lesson from letting such a lead slip in those conditions and hopefully if a situation comes along later in the season, we will know how to handle it.”
Wolves’ record against Leeds has been mixed, losing their last two meetings after having won the three before that.
And Morley says Leeds’ 50-6 loss against a Wigan side missing five first-team forwards at the weekend could make his side’s job all the more difficult come Friday night.
“Last week’s result between Leeds and Wigan was both a show of strength and a show of weakness,” he said.
“I thought Leeds had an off day and Wigan were showing that they are on fire at the moment.
“I think Leeds got a bit shell-shocked and when that happens against a side with so much momentum you can see big scores racked up.
"That was a harsh lesson for them, because no one wants to be beaten like that at any ground, let alone at home.
“They will have done a lot of hard work this week and a lot of soul searching and they will want a big performance against us.”
