Peet states he knows the threats Salford possess from their previous Super League meeting, which was won by a late Jai Field try.

He said: “At their best, they are a real quality team. What Paul (Rowley) is trying to get is consistency.

“We judge them on the two games against us this year, because both have been as tough as any we have had. There were times when they carved us up for fun and posted tries, because they have the ability to do that if you're the slightest off the mark.

“With the attacking threats they’ve got, particularly through the backline, you know if you do start slow or have any inconsistencies in your defence then they will expose it.

“We will be aiming for a quality start to this game. I can’t remember too many 80 minute performances from us.

“A bit like Salford, we are looking for a bit of consistency at this time of year. We’ve probably been patchy throughout the last six weeks.

“For us, no matter who is in what position, age or experience levels, there’s a few things you need to understand and deliver to be in our team. Most of it comes around efforts in defence.”
