His side claimed a 64-6 victory over heavily-rotated Robins at the DW Stadium, with Abbas Miski crossing for four and Jai Field claiming a hat-trick.

During the game, Morgan Smithies failed a HIA following a knock towards the end of the first half, while after the break Cade Cust went off in discomfort holding his shoulder.

“Losing them meant we couldn't rotate as much as we would’ve liked but fortunately we seemed to come through alright other than them two,” Peet said.

"Morgan (Smithies) is fine. We followed the correct protocol there. He failed his HIA, so if we did have a game next week he probably couldn’t have played.

"Cade will need a check on what he’s done to his shoulder or the collarbone area.”

"It was a big challenge for him to play that but he never batted an eyelid.

"We thought it was important that he played that game and got more minutes under his belt to build on his return to playing for us.

"There was also Iain Thornley and Ryan Hampshire.

"It was important going into a weekend off that as many people as possible got good game time.

"Harvie Hill, Paddy Mago and Junior (Nsemba) all got extended runs in the first team as well.

"It was probably the most minutes Paddy has played for us and I thought he was excellent.

"There were a few things we managed to get into the lads today that should stand us in good stead across the board.

"For both the first team and the reserves, I thought it was a positive night."

Following a weekend off, the Warriors’ next Super League outing comes against Hull FC at the DW Stadium on August 18.
