Holbrook: Price Has Wire Firing

Justin Holbrook says Steve Price has got Warrington firing and he’s expecting nothing less than a tough game on Thursday.

“They’re going to be a hard side to play against and he’s got them playing a really hard style of rugby league,” he said. “They played a really great game against Wigan in the Challenge Cup and we’re expecting that level. They won last week, but they won’t be overly thrilled with how they played.

“I’ve known Steve a long time and it will be great to go up against him. We played under 7s together and he’s doing a great job over there.”

Saints head into the game with a ten-point gap at the top of the table and on the back of a 14-6 win over Wigan at the DW Stadium.

“We knew Wigan were never going to lie down and it was a real battle for 80 minutes,” Holbrook added. “I was happy with the way we went; we made some breaks and couldn’t convert them but that wasn’t our fault – we looked like we were going to score three or four times after making long breaks but credit to them, they kept turning up and stopped it.

“Young Jack Ashworth and Matty Lees were outstanding for us. I was happy for them and happy even though we had some of our key men out we could still get a win there.

“Matty is getting better every week. He’s a great young player and it’s been great to give him so many games in our side this year.”
