Key Quotes:

Joe Mellor:

“The players are itching to getting back on the field and face Warrington. We’re going out to win every game in this competition, so it’s massive for us to get on the training field, be prepared and attack these next seven games.”

Hep Cahill:

“Having the extra men back, like Rhys with the talk and direction he gives, as well as Rangi and Lloyd, is huge. I’m excited that we’ll have some extra depth and experience on the field. It’s going to be a great game” 

Lloyd White:

 “I’ve had a bit of an injury hit season, so I’m looking forward to coming back and stringing some good games together. Unfortunately, a few of us have been out recently, so it will be good to have players back in key positions. Hopefully we can add to the team and help get the result.”
