Wood is Good!Nathan Wood pulls no punches on the field, and the hard working half back is no different of the pitch too.YOU HAVE HELD YOUR HANDS UP AND TAKEN RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE DEFEAT AT HULL LAST WEEK. DO YOU FEEL THAT A DEFEAT CAN BE DOWN TO ONE PERSON OR IS IT A PROBLEM WITHIN THE TEAM?It is a thing that the team has to rectify, but as a senior player and captain on the day it comes down to me to take responsibility for what took place on the field and that is why I have held my hand up and taken the blame. If something goes bad, or goes against us then it is up to the senior players to take responsibility, we are a young side and at times if senior players are missing from the field we show a lack of maturity. When errors are made it can crash the young blokes confidence and they look to us to put it right and if we are making errors then we have to turn it around, no one else is going to do that for us. If the senior players are going well then the young ones confidence soars, our job is to bring them through into well-rounded players.WHO DO YOU THINK THE TEAM NEEDS TO WATCH OUT FOR ON SUNDAY, DO YOU THINK THAT HALIFAX ARE STILL A THREAT CONSIDERING THEIR CURRENT POSITION?Halifax definitely have a lot of fight left in them. If you look at Huddersfield they have created a lot of upsets this season and I think that Halifax have the ability to do the same. We are not a good enough team yet, to sit back and not worry about the performances of teams below us. If Halifax get a sniff of a win at Wilderspool then they will hunt it. We have to make sure that we do not repeat the mistakes that we made at Hull this week, if we do then Halifax have a good enough chance as any to turn us over and that is something that I will not allow to happen.ARE YOU STILL ENJOY LIVING HERE?Yep, I have settled in over here, we have bought a house and the kids have settled in at school and made friends, the wife is also happy, so if they are happy then so am I.WHAT ARE YOUR GOALS AND EXPECTATIONS FOR NEXT SEASON?My goal for next season is to take Warrington to the Top 6. Looking at the competition this season I think that anyone who makes it into the Top 6 has a definite chance to win Super League. This season if we make it it will be a bonus, but next year I think that we will be definite contenders and that is my goal. Also to play consistently each game.
