WARRINGTON Wolves’ quest for consistency starts now.

Victory at Leeds Rhinos tonight would see The Wire pick up back-to-back Super League wins for the first time since last June.

Clearly, not being able to string a run of results together is something Steve Price’s side must find a remedy for in order to challenge at the right end of the table and a trip to Emerald Headingley to face a side that aims to compete with them this year is a big roadblock to overcome.

They must also do so without young full-back Matty Ashton, who is waiting to discover the extent of the hamstring injury he suffered in Friday’s 32-22 win over Toronto Wolfpack.

Stefan Ratchford will revert to full-back in his absence, with Jake Mamo appearing favourite to line up at right centre.

It is the third game in a row that Price has made changes to his backline, but he is not concerned about it being detrimental to his side.

“It is what it is. We’ve trained different players in different positions all throughout the pre-season and we just have to get on with it,” he said.

“Stef has played full-back for a fair while now. He’s a quality operator in that position.

“We feel like the spine is starting to get some traction now having shown some really good signs in the past few weeks.

“That’s starting to come together now so I’m very confident.

“We need to be more consistent throughout and its an area we’ve spoken about.

“We’re making too many errors followed by penalties, or giving away penalties then coughing up errors. We’ve got to knock that out of our game.

“We’re heading in the right direction on that, but it’s going to be a tough game over there.

“We’ve got to kick and defend well as well as asking a few questions in attack.

“I’ve seen some big improvements in our transition into offence, which I feel is an area we have been very good in.

“There’s a few other things we’re working on which I’m confident will come off.”

The Wire are boosted by the return of co-captain Chris Hill, who is available again after completing a three-match ban for his red card in the opening-day defeat at Wigan Warriors.

Even while absent from the team, Price has been impressed with the leadership the England prop has shown around the group.

“It’s great to have Chill back in the team. That’s going to be handy as it gives us another big body up front

“He’s not a good watcher of games. He can get quite grumpy when the game’s on and he’s not playing, but he’s been fantastic around the team.

“He’s been helping out all the young fellas and even while not playing, he has shown great leadership.

“It was unfortunate what happened to him at Wigan but I’ve been really pleased with how he’s conducted himself in these past few weeks.”
