STEVE Price is relaxed about the pursuit of further additions to his Warrington Wolves squad.

Indeed, he went as far as to say as he would be happy to start the 2020 Super League season with the group of players he already has.

The Wire are known to be in the market for at least one more new signing, with a front rower the top priority.

Moves for Sydney Roosters prop Zane Tetevano and New Zealand Warriors' Sam Lisone were rumoured, but neither have materialised with both players believed to have opted to remain in the NRL.

Price says the club are still active in that search but he also expects some of the players already at his disposal to put their hands up to feature prominently in the first team.

“We’ve got a position available within our squad, but we’ve got to make sure it’s the right thing for us,” he said.

“Those kinds of things will be kept confidential, but we have got a spot there.

“I’d definitely be happy with the squad if it stayed like this, though.

“There’s a number of players I’m looking at to step up next year. The likes of Luis Johnson for example, who is really cracking on in pre-season.

“He’s one of a few that I’m looking at the put their best foot forward for selection.”

With the exception of the players who were chosen for post-season internationals, most of the Warrington squad has now returned for pre-season training.

Price, who himself returned from spending time with family in Australia last week, says he wanted to give some of the older members of his squad more time to rest and recuperate.

“I gave the elder players who have done more than five seasons of Super League a bit more of an extended break,” he said.

“We haven’t had a weekend off in two seasons so I thought a longer break would do them good. Hopefully we’ll get the rewards for that next year.

“They’ve all looked after themselves and now they’re working extremely hard. I’m pleased with where they’re at.

“I went back home to Australia for a couple of weeks to see some family. I feel energised and it’s good to get back in some routine and structure now.

“While I’ve been away, the coaching staff have done a terrific job with the guys.

“We’re in a good place and there’s exciting times ahead.”
