Price insists Warrington progression there for all to see after ‘really pleasing’ Leeds win

Warrington coach Steve Price believes the advancements his sides have made since the beginning of the season were illustrated perfectly in Friday night’s win over Leeds.

The Wolves made it nine successive wins in all competitions after beating the reigning champions 33-22, with Harvey Livett starring with a hat-trick.

And Price, whose side lost to Leeds on the opening night of the season, was delighted with how far his side have come since the beginning of February.

“It’s a totally different team,” he said. “From day one I said it would take time.

“I’m just so proud of the character of the team. We’ve had a number of good wins in succession where we’ve been the front-runners – but this one was really pleasing.”

The Wolves battled back from 22-11 down to score 22 unanswered points of their own – with Livett’s two tries during that period completing his hat-trick.

And Price admits the club are keen to tie down the highly-rated utility – who is out of contract at the end of this season.

“He’s an old-school, natural footballer; he loves getting his hands on the football, the old red. He’s a proper footy player and he just loves playing.

“Hopefully we sort that (the contract) out very shortly. He wants to stay here at Warrington and I want to keep him.”
