The Windsor Wolves will be aiming for a hat-trick of wins when they take on the bottom placed Canterbury Bulldogs tonight (Friday) at Windsor Sporting Complex.
The fifth-placed Wolves have now won two straight games since long-time coach Guy Missio returned to the helm with Garth Brennan returning to the Holden Cup.
Newly re-signed Wolves and Panthers prop Sam Anderson, who made his Panthers NRL debut earlier this year, said both coaches have done equally as well in guiding the side to a finals berth this year.
“They are both pretty good coaches but the boys just want to play for each other and not let any other things [off the field] worry them,” he told Extra Time.
“Both Garth and Guy are very good coaches, you wouldn’t say one has done better than the other.”
Last week the Wolves thrashed Mounties 46-26 in what was a typical NSW Cup high-scoring encounter. 22-year-old Anderson scored a double in the win, bringing his try scoring tally to seven for the season – a somewhat unusual stat for a prop.
“I just put the team’s performance down to hard work and working for each other,” Anderson said.
“If we focus on our defence, we know we can put points on. Our main goal every week is to focus on our defence then our attack will come.”
Newcomer to the side, halfback Luke Capewell, has also been enjoying a great year since transferring from the Brisbane Broncos mid-way through the season.
Capewell said the club’s in a good place at the moment both on and off the field.
“The club is coming off two wins in a row in both the NRL and NSW Cup, so it’s a good place to be at the moment,” he said.
“Our defence is definitely something we need to fix heading into the finals, we are certainly working on it each week.”
