Swann Hoping Added Aggression Can Tame WildcatsKiwi international second rower Logan Swann believes increased aggression and desire is needed by The Wolves ahead of Sunday's trip to Belle Vue.Swann, who featured in Warrington's disappointing home defeat to the Catalans Dragons last weekend, thinks the squad will have to cut out sloppy errors before playing the exciting brand of rugby league the supporters crave.Paul Cullen's side will be hoping to reproduce the away form they showed at The JJB Stadium against Wigan Warriors earlier this month and Logan Swann thinks lessons can be learned from Saturday's slip up. Swann, who is expected to feature against Wakefield, explained: "Against The Catalans we started in third gear and then made errors from there, I don't think it was all about complacency, but we definitely made it difficult for ourselves. This week we have put in extra work so we can cut out the type of errors that cost us.""In training we talked about the defeat, but now we need to start Sunday's game positively. The squad have been putting the emphasis on resolving problem areas and developing a winning attitude. Aggression and desire are both important and we need these elements directly from the kick-off.""Ideally we wanted a win against the French and from there we saw the potential to get a roll on with the following game. That wasn't the case, but a win at Wakefield could be the confidence boost we need to build some momentum.""As a group of players we want to show our supporters who travel to Yorkshire how much we care."A virus has limited Logan Swann to just three appearances so far this season; however he has now fully recovered from the illness which he admits knocked him for six in February.He was a class act in his first season at Warrington after returning to his specialist position as an 'edge' backrower. A strong and athletic runner who takes control of the fringes in defence, he forms a devastating triangle on the Wolves right edge alongside Martin Gleeson and Henry Fa'afili, scoring a double figure tries count of his own in 2005. A junior with Otahuhu Leopards and Allersley Eagles in New Zealand, Swann joined the Auckland Warriors colts in their inaugural season as a franchise in the Australian competition in 1995. Achievedthe unusual distinction of winning three Test caps before he had even played first grade for the Warriors, called up to the New Zealand squad for the 1996 whitewash against Great Britain after impressing for a NewZealand Residents XIII against the touring Lions. Went on to become a stalwart of the Warriors side for seven seasons, winning the Minor Premiership in 2002 and playing in the Grand Final defeat to Sydney Roosters the same year. Part of the history-making Kiwi tourists of 1998 who became the first New Zealand side to win a Test series in Great Britain, he also played in the 2000 World Cup Final. Joined Bradford Bulls for a season in 2004, winning the World Club Challenge and playing in a losing Grand Final for the second time in his career, against Leeds Rhinos.
