DURING a season in which Warrington Wolves’ selection has been pretty consistent, one position in particular has been a bit of a revolving door.

Matt Davis is one of seven different players who have started at loose forward for The Wire during 2019.

Ben Westwood, Jason Clark, Lama Tasi, Joe Philbin, Jack Hughes and Sitaleki Akauola have also started games in that role but arguably, it is the 23-year-old Midlander who has made the biggest impression

Davis is the man in possession and has regularly attracted praise from the terraces for his all-action style.

He wants to nail down the role he has been given but accepts head coach Steve Price may prefer a bigger option in certain games.

The former London Bronco may have scored his first Wire try during Friday’s defeat to Salford Red Devils but he says it is the other side of the game that brings him the most satisfaction.

“I don’t score many tries so defence is something I really enjoy – probably the thing I enjoy the most,” he said.

“Putting a good shot on and forcing an error is as good as scoring a try for me.

“I feel I’ve got a chance to nail this loose forward spot down but it’s always up to Pricey and what he feels from week to week.

“There will be games when he might want to go with a bigger pack and have someone with a bit more size through the middle.

“It may differ from game to game but if I keep working hard on the small details that I pride myself on, I’m sure it will put me in good stead for the starting 13.

“I really enjoy starting games so we’ll see.”

Overall, Davis has made 14 appearances for The Wire since returning from a one-month loan spell at former club London Broncos in April – five of which have come from the start.

With Akauola suspended, he is once again in contention for the run-on 13 for Sunday’s trip to Castleford Tigers.

Davis started when The Wire last travelled to the Mend-A-Hose Jungle back in May – a game which resulted in a 26-14 victory.

By the time Sunday’s game comes around, Wolves will have had nine days to stew over their disappointing home defeat to the Red Devils and the players have enjoyed some time off to recharge their batteries.

Despite a seventh league defeat of the campaign, Davis insists there is no need to panic.

“It’s not the end of the world – we’re still second in the table,” he said.

“We should be winning games like the Salford game but we’ve got to put it behind us.

“We’ve had a long turnaround before Cas – we did a good job over there last time we played them.

“Cas are starting to get some players back and of course, we can’t take them lightly.

“It’s always tough going to the Jungle and we know we’ve got a job to do there.”
