Smith ready to raise Wolves in Perpignan

Warrington coach Tony Smith believes his side will respond positively to last week’s Challenge Cup final defeat when they travel to face Catalans Dragons on Saturday.

The Wire lost a close game 12-10 to Hull FC at Wembley, but Smith wants to see a positive reaction from his men.

“We lost in the last two minutes of that game and it’s important to respond,” he said, according to

“With our spirit, I’ve got no doubt we’ll be able to do that.

“We’re pretty motivated at the moment. We’re still one of four teams vying for a Grand Final, it’s just a matter of which order we all finish.

“We’ve said it for a while, we’re aiming for number one so we’ll go all out to do that.

“The performance this week is important to us and we’re putting out our strongest team. That’s been tested but it’s a good opportunity for some young guys who are fresh and keen and see it as an opportunity.

“I don’t think it’s a hard job to get them going again. They’re all pretty keen to get out there and get rid of some of those recent memories.”
