Steve McNamara: It was and I described it as a Pantomime but whatever happened we have just got to concentrate on our own performance. What disappointed me more than anything is that we looked so strong and so good initially and looked like we could really gone with that game but we had a lack of discipline in our own performance and a lack of smartness about us to really go one and finish that game off.
YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE BE BOTH SMART AND STRONG AT WARRINGTON.
Steve McNamara: Without a doubt. They are a side that is packed with talented players and they are going to be a big challenge for us. They are like a lot of side at the moment; in that they look like they have some wind in their sails and then they get it knocked out of them and bar the top three I think we all feel the same at the moment. But by scoring sixty points last week it has put them in a position where they will feel they can kick on with things, especially as they have another home game coming up but hopefully we can stop them.
I think if we won there it would send a message out about us. We have not really performed in front of the TV cameras this season and they will be there on Friday and I think we are a far better side than we have shown so far, so Friday would be a good time to perform. We have seven games left and, whilst we are not quite in the position we would ideally like to be in, we are in the Top Six and we want to maintain that spot and kick on. There are seven games to go, which is virtually a quarter for the season. This game won
