It’s all about discipline for Warrington against Leigh

Warrington coach Tony Smith thinks that discipline will be key to his side beating Leigh and reaching the Challenge Cup semi-final.

The Wolves welcome a rampant Centurions team to the Halliwell Jones on Saturday afternoon,and Smith knows that his team will have to be fully focused if they want to progress to the semi-final.

“They chance their arm, they throw the ball around plenty,” said Smith, when asked to assess the visitors’ threats.

“We’ll look forward to some of the challenges that they’ll throw us in that respect.

“They’ve had some good successes over the last couple of years, and they’ve taken their competition very seriously for the last couple of years, and thrown a lot of money at it.

“So we’ll have to be on our best behaviour. I think remaining disciplined is a key element when you play Leigh.

“They challenge you in all sorts of ways. So we need to make sure we’re disciplined and sticking to our plan, and sticking to playing good rugby.

“We’ll give them a healthy respect that they deserve, and concentrate on what we need to do.”

Smith and his team are also excited by the sense of big occasion which surround this game, and he is focusing on beating Leigh for the present, rather than the side’s current mediocre Super League form.

“We won’t look beyone this week,” he said.

“It’s all about this week and getting things right.

“There’s some stuff we need to put right from our game last week.

“We’re exicted to be home as well, with our home support, and it should be a good following from Leigh also.

“We’re excited about being in the Cup, it’s a fantastic competition.

“We’ve had some fond memories in recent times of the Cup, some of us at the club.

“This club as a whole has enjoyed plenty of success in the Cup over the years.

“So we enjoy it. We looked forward to it, and we’re excited by it.”
