STEVE Price says Warrington Wolves have “a couple of plans ready” as they prepare to tackle a busy week.

The Wire take on Catalans Dragons tonight, Friday, kick off 6pm – the first of three games in eight days.

They visit Salford Red Devils on Tuesday, kick off 5.30pm, before the Challenge Cup semi final against the same opponents next Saturday.

With Price’s side fighting on two fronts, the head coach insists there will be no prioritising between competitions.

However, with a large and almost fully available squad at his disposal, rotation appears likely at some stage.

“We want to win everything. We hate losing,” he said.

“I’ve got a fantastic coaching and high-performance staff here. We’re meticulous with our planning.

“A number of players train within our top 21 but we also have a number training outside of that.

“We like to think we’ll be prepared for whatever is thrown at us.

“We’ve got a couple of plans ready behind the scenes.

“We’ll focus all our energy into Catalans first of all and we’ll see where we’re at.”

Despite no injury being reported by Price, Stefan Ratchford has been left out of The Wire’s 21-man squad to face the Dragons on home turf.

However, Gareth Widdop is back having missed the past three matches and is set to take Ratchford’s place at scrum-half, with Matty Ashton remaining at full-back.

Having started impressively either side of the coronavirus shutdown, Catalans have hit some bumps in the road of late.

They were beaten by Wigan upon their return to playing in France before being knocked out of the Challenge Cup by Salford last week.

With that in mind, Price has warned his side to expect a backlash from Steve McNamara’s men.

“We expect a really strong Catalans team on Friday night. I’m sure they will be getting a bit of a rev-up after their performance against Salford,” he said.

“They started off really well pre-Covid and since then, they’ve had a few solid displays as well.

“We’re expecting a tough game, but we’re back at home which is always nice as we love playing at the HJ.

“We’re in really good form – there’s a really strong togetherness about us and everyone’s improving which is pleasing.

“The boys are confident and excited for Friday.”
