Cullen - Hicks is the 'biz'
Wolves coach delighted with Aussie signing
Warrington coach Paul Cullen believes his club did a "good bit of business" with the capture of Australian winger Chris Hicks from Manly Sea Eagles.
Hicks was instrumental in Wolves' 30-14 victory over the Huddersfield Giants at the Halliwell Jones Stadium - his two tries took his tally to 10 in just seven games.
Cullen said: "He's a good tradesman, and you have to be to have played for the length of time he did in the NRL.
"It has been a good bit of business all round.
"At the moment he's doing everything we are asking of him and more considering he hurt his ankle quite badly in the NRL semi-final play-offs and had to have an operation on his other ankle before he came over here.
"But he's playing very, very well and I think there is more to come from him."
Cullen admitted the game wasn't the most glamorous affair but praised his players for they way they stuck to the task and clawed their way over the line.
"The game was always going to be a bit of a grind at some point and it was about how we handled it," he said.
"The pleasing part was when we dug a bit of a hole for ourselves by not completing sets and pushing the pass - we corrected it and had the ability to open up and score some tries."
Giants coach Jon Sharp was disappointed with his side's discipline which he believed cost them the chance of victory.
"I thought we saw a really close contest for 50 or 60 minutes but we are lacking a bit of discipline at the moment and penalties are really hurting us," Sharp said.
"Technically and systems wise I am happy with what we are doing but we have to wise up because you can't give a team like Warrington field position because offensively they are one of the greatest threats in the game.
"It also affects your energy when you get the ball because when you are defending double sets for long periods it takes its toll and you are not as threatening when you do get the ball.
"We were good last week against Wigan and conceded too many penalties.
"I thought we were good again today but have again conceded too many penalties which is hurting us at the back end of games.
"It's a simple solution - blokes who are ill disciplined don't play."
