Warrington respect for Bradford

Warrington coach Tony Smith says his side have a healthy respect for Sunday’s visitors to the Halliwell Jones Stadium, Bradford.

It’s the Bulls first game since they were deducted six points for entering administration, which now sees them outside the play-off places.

They will be looking to gain revenge on the Wolves, who beat them 23-10 in the reverse fixture, as well as coming out on top 32-16 in the Challenge Cup earlier this year.

Smith said: “The Bulls have had some challenges to overcome and have recently been docked some points from the league table so they fall out of the top eight. They will feel aggrieved by that and have certainly used the rest of the adversity that they have had this year as motivation so no doubt they’ll add that onto the pile of motivation they already have. 

“We have a healthy respect for them and they have performed pretty consistently this year. We’ve got to make sure we get out there and give the best performance we can and if we do that we give ourselves every chance for a victory.”

Warrington have welcomed back injured pair Rhys Evans and Simon Grix to their 19-man squad.
