Smith dismisses Warrington’s Langtree Park form

Warrington coach Tony Smith does not think that Warrington’s recent run of good form at Langtree Park matters on Thursday evening.

The Wolves have won all four of their Super League contests with St Helens at Langtree Park, but Smith is not taking anything for granted.

“Where it is doesn’t matter,” he said.

“Going over there is always tough. We’ve got a better record at their new ground than their old ground, that’s for sure.

“We had an horrific record at Knowsley Road, but we’ve had some good results at the new ground.

“But that all counts for very little. It all comes down to tomorrow night, and making sure that we’re ln our game because they’re a good team.

“They’ve got a huge pack of forwards, and some terrific outside backs, and they’re a dangerous team.

“So we need to be good. We’d like to build on last week, we felt that we justified our win by our performance.

“We’ve got to do that again. We’ve got to start all over again and justify our performance and win by earning it – that’s going to be hard.”

Smith knows that his team must work very hard to score points against a Saints team who are very committed in defence this season.

“Saints have got a committed defensive line. They try not to let their opposition score tries,” he added.

“They work really hard to make you earn each and every point, which is how it should be.

“That often brings some of the best games of the season between these two clubs.”
