Hill wants Wolves’ form out of window for Leigh Cup clash

Warrington prop Chris Hill has acknowledged that the Wolves’ Super League form is not good enough at the moment.

Wire were beaten by Hull KR at the KC Lightstream Stadium last week and now sit in seventh place on 18 points, nine points behind Leeds in first.

They head into this weekend’s Challenge Cup quarter-final clash with Leigh struggling to find consistency and quality in their performances, and Hill hopes that a good Cup display and reinject some impetus.

“We’re not where we want to be,” said Hill.

“That’s the discussion we’ve had, we don’t want to be down there.

“But Super League‘s put to the bed for a week, we’ve got bigger fish to fry on Saturday with Leigh and their record coming to the HJ.

“I don’t think you can relax in the Challenge Cup.

“You prepare for no matter who you’ve got. If we had an amateur side this week we’d still prepare as well as we can.

“Leigh will be as good as any Super League side at the minute.

“It’s another Grand Final for them at the weekend.

“We’ve got to be ten times better than we were at Hull KR, otherwise we’ll get turned.”

Hill is a former Centurion himself, having joined Warrington from Leigh ahead of the 2012 season.

The club has altered significantly since he was there, though one constant factor has been the club’s ambition to progress.

“It was always a club with ambition when I was there too,” he said.

“It just probably wasn’t directed in the way that it should have been when I was there.

“Now there’s a lot of ambition at the club, and people putting money into it, which it needed.”
