Warrington versus HuddersfieldSuper League
Monday, May 17th, 7:45 p.m.
Halliwell Jones Stadium
All the talking points ahead of the Super League clash between Warrington and Huddersfield as they welcome fans back for the first time since March 2020.
For the first time in over 14 months, the turnstiles at Halliwell Jones Stadium are spinning , while 4,000 happy fans can watch the action.
Robbie Mulhern is looking forward to playing in front of the fans after such a long time and is excited to have the Wolves fans behind the team
« It was strange for all players who don’t play with crowds, especially compared to what we’re used to, « he said. « When I played for Hull KR against Warrington, it was always a very hostile environment and the fans were very noisy. I’m looking forward to being on the other end for a change. »
« I know it’s just there There will be 4,000 but with the way the stadium is set up the stands are very close to the field and it’s very compact, it will create a great atmosphere, especially in a big game like this the sooner we get full capacity the better. «
Huddersfield struggled to win this season, but thanks to a pointer from Lee Gaskell that gave them a 14:13 triumph over Leeds, Huddersfield claim their first win of the season in their last Super League game.
They also showed promise in their Challenge Cup loss to St. Helens and Warrington won’t take them lightly.
« Huddersfield is a team that many questions s tells. The table does not reflect their performance, especially in the last few weeks, « said Wolves CEO Steve Price.
» They are not underestimated, they are a quality team and we have to be right from the first minute. «
In the absence of Jack Walker, Mike Cooper was named Skipper of the Wolves, and Steve Price says it’s just a reward for his way of playing.
« It’s an opportunity for one of our own Warringtonians, our club’s captain to become in Mike Cooper. It’s a great reward for Mike, « said Price.
» He plays the game hard and hard and there is no better reward for a player in his home club, the HJ, who is back in front of the fans on Monday. »
« He’s a pretty low-key guy, but deep down I know he’ll be proud to run our club. He loves Warrington and I know he’ll do a really good job for us on Monday.
St. Helens and Salford met in the opening round of the Super League with Saints, who had 29-6 winners that day. However, Kristian Woolf believes the Red Devils evolved from that defeat.
« I think what we did really well at the beginning of the season and is probably the most important element of how we want to play this time of year that our efforts have been excellent, « said Woolf.
» There have been a lot of times that we didn’t get things right, but we wanted to work really hard and get our efforts right and that got us games. There are a lot of things we are going to improve and we have been up and down in some areas.
« There have been periods when our defenses have been excellent and others when they haven’t been quite up to the same standard. Then there were periods when our attack was good and went really well and others when it was stopped a bit. start for various reasons.
« We are still improving, like many teams, but now they have these seven games behind them. I assume that we will improve quickly from now on. » </ p Warrington manager Steve Price expects full-back Stefan Ratchford to return after missing the Cup win over Catalans with a foot injury, while supporter Mike Cooper will take the lead in the absence of Jack Hughes, who is banned from playing.
Huddersfield have center Jake Wardle back after a three-game injury, allowing Chris McQueen to return to the pack. It’s probably the only change in the team that lost to St. Helens in the Cup.
