STEVE Price is looking to “dripfeed” his rugby league philosophies through all age groups not just at Wolves, but around the town.

Since arriving in the UK to take up his role as The Wire’s new head coach, Price has been heavily involved in community events, such as attending the Warrington Man of Steel awards ceremony.

Price and his assistants Andrew Henderson and Lee Briers also led a clinic for around 70 community coaches from the town’s amateur clubs, with another session planned for the new year.

Chief executive Karl Fitzpatrick says laying these sorts of foundations will ensure younger players are ready if and when the time comes to join The Wire.

He also confirmed Price, Henderson and Briers have agreed to spend time coaching the club’s academy and scholarship sides.

“It’s important for us to have really strong links with our community clubs. The coaches led a community coaching session and that will be followed up with another one early next year,” he said.

“They provide players through that talent pipeline, and we’ve got a duty within the town to upscale those community coaches.

“We want them to produce Warrington players, so in order for them to do that, we need to help them and that’s something Steve is really passionate about.

“Andrew Henderson and Lee Briers will also spend one night a week coaching the academy and scholarship players, as will Steve.

“They can dripfeed Steve’s ideas and ways of playing from first grade all the way down to scholarship level.

“There’s that synergy all the way through, so when a player goes through the scholarship and academy into the first team, he’s used to the calls and structures.

“That will hopefully speed up the development of future Warrington Wolves players.”

Wolves players who are not involved in the Rugby League World Cup have been in pre-season training since November 6.

Fitzpatrick says the squad have been positive about the impact Price has had on them so far.

“They’ve brought this new energy and enthusiasm to the organisation,” he said.

“The feedback from the players has been extremely positive. There is a real excitement, not just in the playing group but across the business as a whole.”
