Gidley: St Helens will be tough

Warrington half Kurt Gidley is expected a difficult encounter against St Helens at Langtree Park tonight.

It remains a tight battle at the top with Hull FC just two points ahead of the Wolves at the top of Super League.

Warrington fell to Saints at the Halliwell Jones Stadium 22-25 in round 10.

“They got us there last time a few weeks ago,” Gidley told Love Rugby League.

“We didn’t play our best that night and they still beat us in the end.

“We were disappointing ourselves that night just defensively and with our kicking game. It’s a big game.”

Gidley is enjoying a great first season with Warrington and has managed six tries, nine try assists and scored 56 goals.

“It’s still been challenging,” he admitted.

“I was after a new challenge. We’ve had a pretty good start to the year but we’ve still got some things to work on.

“It’s been a good change for me. It’s been a realy good lifestyle change for me as well.”

Gidley has combined well with fellow Aussie halfback Chris Sandow for the Wire.

“He’s been great,” he said.

“He’s been back to the old Chris Sandow that I played against at Souths. I know he had a bit of a chequered time when he was at Parramatta, but he’s been outstanding.

“He was probably the form player of the competition before he got injured. It’s been great to have him back on the park as of last week.
