Tim Sheens claims that he is relishing the opportunity to face a highly rated Warrington Wolves side the Saturday, as well as insisting they are aware of the task at hand as we travel to the Halliwell Jones Stadium.

Sheens described Warrington as a ‘different beast’, yet believes his side are in a good place following their opening day victory.

“We enjoyed the moment last week, but we have really got our heads down and made sure that we are in the right position,” said Sheens, who is sponsored by 360 Accountants.

“Warrington are a different beast at their place, they showed just how good they are the way they went through Leeds. We are under no illusions this is going to be a tough game.

“Warrington are an emerging side who are quickly getting stronger. They have two out this week to suspension, but they will still have a very strong side with their replacements.

“We are preparing well, we have all of our number available that we had last week plus a handful of others.

“Hopefully we will build on last week’s game, there is still lots to do but I am confident that every day we train we get better and better.”

Sheens highlighted Wolves star man Stefan Ratchford as a player to watch while giving his forwards the task of stopping Daryl Clark and new recruit, Blake Austin.

The former-Australia head coach also hinted at the idea of changing a few things in his own line-up, stating there is always room for improvement.

“Austin was good last week but for me, it is still their forward leaders, particularly led by Clark with his speed out of dummy-half,” said Sheens

“They are probably one of the favourites this win, so a win over there would be great for us.

“Just because you win doesn’t mean you don’t tweak the side. There aren’t any major changes, but I am going to make some.

“I thought we were a little ordinary in the first half, although we had a lot of chances before conceding back to back tries.

“We can’t give Warrington a sniff like that, so we need to make sure we’ve got it right with what went wrong there.”
