Cullens CommentPaul looks at the hard fought victory over the London Broncos and look towards this weekends encounter with the table topping Leeds Rhinos on Saturday.CONGRATULATIONS ON THE WIN AGAINST LONDON AT THE WEEKEND, WAS THERE EVER A TIME IN PARTICULAR GOING INTO THE BREAK THAT YOU THOUGHT WE COULD LOOSE THE GAME?We don't waste time or energy worrying about ifs or maybes. Our focus at the break was very simple; we had only conceded one try to a very skilful and inform London team because we threw the ball on the floor with one minute left on the clock, on our first play of our tap set. Their second and final try came whilst we had twelve men on the field following three consecutive penalties against us. Both tries where scored from two inches off our try line, we where confident that our defensive preparations would nullify the Broncos defensive threat and our satisfied that it actually did.TWO TOUGH GAMES COMING UP WITH LEEDS THIS SATURDAY AND THEN ST HELENS TWO WEEKS ON FRIDAY, BOTH TEAMS REMAIN UNBEATEN BY WARRINGTON THIS SEASON. ARE YOU CONFIDENT THAT YOU CAN TURN THEM OVER ON HOME SOIL?We are confident that we are getting closer to both clubs sometimes a points spread during a game may not reflect that due to circumstances that can present in any given game. But the battle for us against these teams is one of confidence in our ability to raise our game and match them and I am confident that we are beginning to win that battle.YOU HAVE A WEEK OFF AFTER LEEDS WITH THE POWERGEN CHALLENGE CUP SEMI FINALS IN BETWEEN, WHAT IS THE TEAM SCHEDULE DURING THIS TIME?One of preparation for the business end of the season.THE REFEREES HAVE COME IN FOR A LOT OF STICK OVER THE LAST WEEKEND WITH THE HIGH PENALTY COUNTS, WHAT DO YOU THINK IS CONTRIBUTING TO THAT - PLAYERS RELAXING THEIR DISCIPLINE OR REFEREES CRACKING DOWN ON EVERY LITTLE ERROR?Both, we erred at the weekend and where punished and on occasions quite harshly if compared to the norm over the previous months.WHAT IS THE INJURY SITUATION THIS WEEK?Dean Gaskell is our only doubt, he injured his groin in the first set of the second half and will not play this weekend and is doubtful for the next 2-4 weeks. The groin is very sore and will require further time to settle before a full assessment can be made. The other injuries are bumps and bruises that are to be expected at this stage of the season.
