Smith wary of dangerous Wakey

Warrington coach Tony Smith isn’t taking lightly Wakefield ahead of Saturday’s Cup match.

Warrington and Trinity meet at Leigh for a spot at Wembley on the line.

“They’re a dangerous team and they’re as dangerous as any team at the moment,” Smith told Love Rugby League. 

Jacob Miller, his attacking flair is scary at times and we need to be well aware of him as well as some others.

“They play rugby league, they pass the ball and offload the ball. They’re a dangerous team and it’s a game we’re very wary of.”

Wakefield were coached by Brian Smith, Tony’s brother, at the start of the year before Chris Chester took over after the first five rounds.

Chester has led Trinity to an eigth place Super League finish and a Challenge Cup semi-final, and Smith believes Chester and his predecessor both deserve praise for the club’s turnaround.
“I think there needs to be some credit given there, we can all have different views on how much, in some of the hard work yes and also some of the recruitment has been very good,” Tony Smith said.

“Brian told me he was recruiting a pretty good team and it was going to take a little bit of time.

“When you have a big readjustment of personnel it takes time to all settle together and Chris has come in and done a tremendous job with them, picked them up from where they were and carried on.

“They all deserve some credit in my opinion.”
