WITH competition for places being high, Harvey Livett knew he had to take his chance when it came against Hull Kingston Rovers.

The 22-year-old crossed for two tries in place of the suspended Toby King as Warrington Wolves achieved a hard-earned win against Hull Kingston Rovers.

“I thought I had a dig,” he said.

“For the two tries one was an easy walk in and the other was picking up a loose ball.

“It was like last year, being in the right place at the right time.

“I am happy with the two tries but even better with the two points.”

With King’s suspension now over and Ben Currie closing in on a return from a second torn anterior cruciate ligament the England Knights international back-rower cannot feel assured he has done enough to keep his place for the next outing at Huddersfield Giants.

“We’ve got loads of competition in the team,” said Livett, who revealed he was asked to focus on areas of defensive improvement during the off-season.

“Toby’s played a bit of back row and Currie’s back in the next week or two.

“I’ll keep working hard in training and then see what Pricey picks for the next game.”

Livett said The Wire will be looking to improve on their performance when they visit the John Smith’s Stadium on Friday, February 21, with The Wire having no fixture this coming weekend due to the World Club Challenge fixture between Wigan and Sydney Roosters taking place.

“There were too many errors, too many balls put down against Hull KR,” he said.

“It was just a very scrappy performance. We got the two points, which is all that matters, but we need to be better in the next game.

“We’ve got a few new players in there and it is still about gelling together but we still need to be better than that.

“We’re on the back of two wins so the week off has come at a bit of a wrong time but it will be good for the boys to rest up and then we’ll go again for the next game and get right.

“We always go there and get beat, but on the back of two wins we’ll get back into training and I’m really confident going into that game so hopefully we’ll get the two points there.”
