His side have won two and lost two so far this season, with each fixture providing different hurdles for the Warriors to contend with.

Peet states his side are looking to produce a strong performance following last week’s 18-10 defeat to Catalans Dragons at the DW Stadium.

“A combination of things meant we didn’t play the way we wanted to, and if that sort of game presents itself again then we need to adjust and play smarter.

“It was frustrating but we move on quickly.

“It’s not been a case of picking the players up, it's about staying level, which is the same as the weeks where things go really well.

“We pride ourselves on being quite constant in how we go about things.

“We’ve got to execute better and maybe make better decisions, but we don’t have a problem with our skill.

“I would’ve hoped for four strong performances but we’ve not got that.

“That’s the season I guess and that’s coaching.

“They are consistent and methodical in what they do, with a few players who can be the difference.

“It reflects well on their club as a whole.
