Myler: We cannot take London lightly

Warrington Wolves half back Richie Myler believes London Broncos are not a side the Wolves can afford to underestimate.

The Wolves, who travel to the Twickenham Stoop on Friday night, says the Broncos’ big names are starting to work together which could cause the Challenge Cup finalists trouble in front of the television cameras.

Myler said: “The Broncos are hitting some really good form at the moment under new coach Tony Rea so we need to play well against them.

“At the beginning of the season they signed some big name players and people were tipping them to do really well. Unfortunately it didn’t quite work out that way at the start but towards the back end, they appear to have hit some form and we are in for a real tough test on Friday.”

With over a week to go until the Wolves face Leeds at Wembley, Myler does not want a repeat of 2010 when he was sensationally dropped from Tony Smith’s starting 17 the last time Warrington reached Wembley.

The 22-year old is taking nothing for granted with regards to selection this time round, and knows a big performance against London will force coach Tony Smith to pick him for the sport’s showpiece occasion.

He said: “We’ve got such a good squad this year and competition for places is very high. Everyone that’s playing is playing really well which is great for the team.

“When you’ve got so many players vying for certain positions it breeds good performances. You know you have to be on your game or you don’t get picked.”

Because competition for places is high amongst the side, Myler believes that is the root cause of the Wolves seemingly hitting form ahead as the business end of the season approaches.

Myler said: “We are where we wanted to be at this time of the year; well not exactly as we’re not quite top, but we seem to be hitting some form at the right time which is always good and we all seem fresh too. We know what we need to do to win games and we take each game as it comes.”
