STEVE Price was a happy coach after the 54-6 win for his Warrington Wolves side at Hull KR in Betfred Super League Round 12.

After heavy losses to St Helens and Salford Red Devils, The Wire got themselves back on track at KCOM Craven Park.

“We were looking for a response from Friday and we got it,” said Price, making reference to the 36-12 home loss to Salford three days previous.

“It typifies the kind of men and team we have at the Wolves.

“It's a group who really care about each other and it showed in the performance today.

“To rack up 54 points is always very pleasing.

“The second game over Easter is tough.

“We had a couple of players missing today, as did Hull KR, and there was an opportunity for guys who haven't been getting a lot of minutes to get some today.

“The Easter programme has been in the English game for a long time and you have to respect tradition.

“Sometimes it’s going to get to a point where the duty of player is really important.

“With the speed of the game having grown over the past three months and the amount of football you play throughout the year it’s quite taxing on the body.

“They’re seriously going to have to look at it.

“But you’ve just got to get the gloves on, punch on and jab away.

“I’m really proud of the guys.

“It was 18-6 at half time and I could feel that Hull KR were bending about 12 to 14 minutes prior to half time.

“A couple of decisions went against us but we held our nerve, trusted the process and scored some really good tries.

“Joe Philbin got two tries and Stef Ratchford kicked nine goals from nine attempts which was first class.

“But I thought there was a really big game-changing moment with Daryl Clark's effort to take Craig Hall down two metres off the try line after the intercept from Blake Austin.

“I was pleased with all the efforts off the ball in the little areas that we talk about as a football club.

“Coming to Hull KR can be difficult at times so to put on a good score is always pleasing.

“It was very important for us after the past couple of results.

“We didn't have a good night the other night but we came here and got among it quite heavily.

“We didn't tippy-toe about it, we went at it head first and it showed in the performance.

“We’re home against Huddersfield next Sunday and it’s important we keep striving towards that top spot.”
