AS Warrington Wolves prepare to host Leeds Rhinos in Super League tonight, Steve Price is looking for his side to build on the platform they have laid in recent weeks.

The Wire are unbeaten in Super League since May 17, a period in which they have defeated the three sides that were above them - Catalans Dragons, St Helens and Wigan Warriors.

Now third-place Warrington's unbeaten six-match sequence is to be tested by a Leeds side also enjoying a good run of results.

Richard Agar's men have rattled up 146 points in their last three wins and are eager to climb higher up the table from seventh.

“There’s a really good vibe among the players, staff and the whole club at the minute," said Wolves' head coach Price.

“There’s good rhythm and good momentum. Hopefully it continues.

“During the week it’s a lot more enjoyable after a win but it’s important that we keep our feet on the ground, remain humble, keep working hard and keep enjoying what we’re doing because the boys are in a really good head space at the moment and they’re playing some really good footy to go with it.”

Price further highlighted areas that are pleasing him.

“All the selflessness that the boys are displaying and all the effort areas they are building into their game, and working hard for each other," he said.

"And also too there’s been some good attack, defending ok, and also there’s been some really good tries.

“We’ve got to keep evolving and keep improving and that’s the challenge. And the guys are really excited for that.”

Leeds went a month without a game due to issues around the coronavirus pandemic but since returning to action at the end of June they have defeated Salford 38-12 and Leigh 48-18.

They will be without a glut of players in tonight's meeting, the first between the sides since Wire's 32-6 victory last October.

“They’ve had a few disruptions over the past couple of weeks," said Price.

“But they’ve still got a quality outfit. They’ve got a number of good players in their squad.

"They’ve got a really strong forward pack led by Matty Prior and Mikolaj Oledzki.

"Brad Dwyer and Kruise Leeming can cause you a fair amount of heartache if you allow them to, around the ruck.

“It’s a challenge we’re excited for. We’re back at The Halliwell Jones Stadium and hopefully our supporters can be nice and loud for the boys. We’ve got to keep growing our game.”

The season is now in a period where matches are more frequent, with The Wire having last played at Wigan on Wednesday and Leeds at home to Leigh on Thursday.

When the turnarounds are shorter, having an extra day to prepare - as Warrington have had - can make a difference.

“The games are coming quick and fast now so hopefully it works to our advantage. Time will tell," said Price.

“In this period now it’s about trying to keep the mind fresh and the legs fresh.

“It’s certainly been different, with the boys training on Saturday and Sunday when they are more used to playing on those days.

“You just have to get on with it. All clubs are going through it at the moment so it’s been more about freshening up a bit this week and lightening the loads a bit.

"We need to keep on improving on the back of our strong performances of the past couple of weeks. That’s what we’re looking forward to.”
