Smith: We’re getting better

Warrington coach Tony Smith was pleased to see his team step up a gear in the second half yesterday to secure a vital victory over Castleford.

The Wire are now just one point behind Hull FC and Wigan on the table.

Warrington piled on 26 points and conceded just six after half-time.

Smith feels his side is starting to gain some form.

“We’re happy with today, we’re pleased to come here and do that,” he said.

“They’re will be plenty of twists and turns in the competition yet. This is the time of the year we want to be getting better.”

The Wire were down 18-16 at half-time but Smith said he thought his team wasn’t too far off at that point.

“We tried to be a little flashy at times,” he admitted.

“I didn’t think we were too far off. I just throught we weren’t aggressive enough in defence.

“They’re a good attacking team. They asked some questions of us at times today. It was easy to clock off a bit with the weather.”

Smith praised the performances of Brad Dwyer, Stefan Ratchford and Toby King who all scored tries.

Brad Dwyer played a really good role for us,” he said.

“I thought he did really well, he came up with one of his trademark tries.

“Stef, his effort was fautless. He got us out of some pickles.

“I thought Toby was really good when he came on. He played second row and halfback. He’s a good footy player. He did really well.”
