Karl Fitzpatrick, chief executive of Warrington Wolves, says he is excited about the progress of the Wire but says there remains plenty of room for improvement

"IT has taken us a little while to gel together as we knew it would with the changes to the coaching set up, the management and the playing personnel.

"But we are now seeing some of the fruits of the club's labour.

"Some great performances have seen us go seven games unbeaten in the league. It is the longest unbeaten run of any team this season which is very satisfying. The most pleasing part though is the improvement we have seen and we know there is still improvement in us.

"And that improvement in us is the really exciting part.

"If we can hit our potential then we are going to trouble a number of teams.

"It is going to be a real test for us in May taking on Leeds, Wigan, Hull and Toronto in the cup, and we hope to keep that run going.

"If we can fulfil our potential and keep improving, there is no reason why we cannot challenge the top two.

"Saints have been the stand out team at the moment. That's plain to see.

"But we are going to challenge them.

"It is an old adage, but take each game as it comes.

"A word too for our under 16 team.

"They are undefeated in the season which is fantastic.

"There is some real special talent in the team and real excitement about them as they are progressing to the next level in the academy.

"Among the highlights of May is the Magic Weekend in Newcastle where we take on Wigan Warriors on May 19.

"The Magic game is also going to see us wearing a new kit, we’ll be transformed to the Marvel character Ant-Man!

"Wolverine would have been the obvious choice but unfortunately our kit supplier does not have the UK licence for the Wolverine character.

"However, I’m sure the supporters will love the Ant-Man shirt when it’s revealed on Friday at 1pm."
