"It was a challenging game against a determined team, with big physical bodies, and the weather brought another element to that.

“We navigated our way through that well.

"We started physically and managed the game for most parts.

"It was similar to the Salford game, and a similar type of performance.

"We probably have similar feelings- we’ve picked up two points, defended relatively strongly and seem healthy coming out of it, so we’ve got to be happy.

"We are building momentum, but it’s about doing it again this week.

"There were times were the lads showed some real desperation to save some tries and the kick chased really aggressively.

"I thought we played well and were in control.

"We’ll enjoy the win, then we’ll start to look at Wakefield after we’ve reviewed this game.

"That’ll be another challenge because they’ve got some momentum now and are picking up wins.

"They’ve played with determination all year, and will build in confidence.

"Each week brings its own type of challenge, and today we knew we were up against a desperate team.”

"I thought his kicking game was excellent and defensively he was outstanding.”

Peet also admitted Junior Nsemba isn’t far away from featuring for the Warriors, after the 19-year-old was named as 18th man for the third consecutive game.

"He’s doing everything right,” he explained.

"I can’t wait to put him in.”

The Warriors face Wakefield Trinity at Belle Vue next Friday (K.O. 7.45pm).
