STEVE Price hailed a “fantastic” first-half display by his Warrington Wolves side against Wakefield Trinity.

However, he admits his side “took their foot off” after the break as Trinity threatened a comeback at The Halliwell Jones Stadium.

The Wire eventually closed out a 23-16 win to end a six-match Super League losing streak – something Price says was the most vital thing to come out of the game.

“The most pleasing thing was to get the W – that was the most important thing tonight. We’ll get a lot of belief and confidence from it,” he said.

“It was a fantastic first half.

“We had a lot of second phase and controlled offloads – we moved the point of attack and the back rowers saw plenty of good, clean ball.

“We maybe could have gone further ahead in that first half but I was really pleased with how we were carrying out our plan.

“We took the foot off in the second half. They were on the ground ready to be choked but we let them off.

“We played a lot of good attacking football. We’ve got no injuries out of the game and the boys are in good spirits.

“We created a lot of ruck speed tonight. We went at them with a lot of numbers pushed around the ball and we were getting over the advantage line.

“We probably could have been 24 or 26 points up, but all Wakefield teams turn it on in the second half.”
