Smith: We were ruthless

Warrington coach Tony Smith has praised his side for never taking their foot off the gas against Wakefield and cruising through to the Challenge Cup final.

The Wire crushed Trinity 56-12 at the Leigh Sports Village.

“It was our day today. Whilst Wakefield didn’t give in my team did a pretty good job right from the outset,” Smith told the BBC.

“Everyone who was here and everyone who watched the game at home will feel the momentum of the match was pretty much one-way.

“They [Wakefield] should be proud of their efforts to get this far. I also wish them the best for the Super 8s now.

“They have done a great job after the start to the season they had.

“Well done to them but it’s about my boys today and playing out a game plan, they played it very, very well.

“We weren’t flashy but we did some outstanding things today.”

Jack Hughes, who was named the Ladbrokes Man of the Match, was delighted his side responded after falling behind early on.

“It was an outstanding effort, I can’t explain the feeling,” he said.

“We did fall behind early but we didn’t panic. We knew to just get back to doing what we do best.”
