THE ORIGIN RESULT WAS A SURPRISE, CONSIDERING THE BOOKIES HAD LANCASHIRE ODDS ON FAVOURITE. WHAT IS YOUR POST MORTEM OF THE GAME?The team that wanted it more won! Yorkshire appeared to have 17 players who were desperate to make their mark in this game and we didn't. The Yorkshire defence were determined and dominant, especially around the ruck and we achieved very little go forward. In fact, all we achieved was a go lateral and our kicking game produced minimal pressure. The players were asked to show David Waite their international intentions and unfortunately some did.LAST WEEKEND'S GAME AGAINST HUDDERSFIELD WAS ANOTHER ONE FOR THE NERVES. WHERE YOU PLEASED WITH THE OVERALL PERFORMANCE?No, I was pleased with the overall result and the way that we responded and improved throughout the game, but I thought we started lethargic and were tested severely by a very drilled and enthusiastic Huddersfield side. The positives were that we remained calm and professional and finally forced the issue in our favour. It was a very important two-point win.HOW MUCH OF A RELIEF IS IT THAT NICK FOZZARD WAS CLEARED OF THE CHARGE OF STRIKING BY THE RFL DISCIPLINARY COMMITTEE?It is not the first time this year that Nick Fozzard has been cleared of any wrong doing by the RFL. Fortunately for us this time the incident did not cost us the game, we did however concede six points from the resulting penalty and most work hard to ensure that we don't allow this situation to happen again.WHAT IS THE WOLVES INJURY STATUS THIS WEEK?Darren Burns (knee) and Mark Gleeson (neck) are added to the injury list and are rated as doubtful ahead of the Leeds game. As are Lee Penny (calf), Mike Wainwright (ankle) and Paul Wood (shoulder) who all failed fitness tests in preparation for the Huddersfield game. But Ben Westwood came through his return via the U21s unscathed and is in contention this weekend.LOOKING A HEAD TO THE LEEDS THIS WEEKEND, DO YOU THINK IT IS AN ADVANTAGE TO WARRINGTON THAT LEEDS HAD SO MANY PLAYERS INVOLVED IN THE ORIGIN ON WEDNESDAY?We will find out at 4.30pm on Sunday. It is not an exact science predicting outcomes on the previous weeks performance as we have proved this year when bouncing back immediately from defeats at St Helens and Wakefield. Negative situations can simply provide the energy to motivate players and coaches alike. The Leeds players who under performed at Widnes didn't under perform against Lancashire, the only guarantee in rugby league is that if you don't produce a genuine and honest effort you stand a very good chance of becoming unstuck.
