Warrington coach Tony Smith was pleased his team managed to come through a tough game at Hull FC to record a one-point victory.
The Wolves won 7-6 at the KC Stadium, and Smith felt it was his team’s resilience in defence which brought them the two points.
“It was a battle. Whether we got the points or not we were pleased with the efforts. It can be as tight as that some days,” he said.
“Defence was the topic of the day and both teams were outstanding. That we get the points is an extra bonus. Both teams have to be commended.
“Stefan [Ratchford] got a stinger on his shoulder and we decided not to risk it.
“But we had lots of positives, including Kevin Penny who was outstanding and that was recognised by his team-mates in the dressing room afterwards. He did a great job for us.”
