FOCUSING on anything other than beating Leeds Rhinos tomorrow will cause Warrington Wolves to slip up, head coach Steve Price says.

The Wire’s place in the Super League play-offs is already secure heading into their final regular-season fixture, but their final position is still up in the air.

Wolves could still finish second, third or fourth in the table, although Wigan Warriors will have the runners-up spot sewn up before their neighbours kick off if they beat Castleford Tigers tonight.

However, Price says the only way in which they are thinking about what comes after their trip to Headingley is the building of momentum and form.

“I worked out long ago that worrying about things outside your control is bad for you. What we can control is our performance on Friday,” he said.

“Our main focus is Leeds, not the play-offs.

“There are so many variables and things that can happen that if we look into them, we’ll get sidetracked.

“If we get down there with a strong mindset and play hard-nosed footy, everything else will take care of itself.

“All we can focus on is building our performances.

“We’ve won two out of three games – it would be nice to go to three from four and go into the finals in good form.

“You need to have a bit of consistency leading into those big games.

“Having said that, we went into the Challenge Cup Final off the back of a few losses but I know what kind of team I have.

“We’re very driven to bring that Super League trophy back to Warrington.

“There’s still a lot of hard work to do between now and then, starting at Leeds.

“We’ve got a wonderful group of men who work extremely hard and there’s a lot of belief and togetherness in the squad.

“We’re fit, we’re healthy and it’s all in our hands.”
