Yeaman confident of Warrington upset

Hull centre Kirk Yeaman says they are full of confidence ahead of tomorrow’s trip to Warrington.

The Airlie Birds go in to the game as underdogs, despite last weekend’s 46-10 thumping of Huddersfield, but that might suit them according to the England man.

He told the club’s official website: “We have some things to work on and we know people have written us off, but we aren’t bothered about what other people say and think. We know as a group what we are capable of and we are quietly confident of getting a result. 

“We’ve won a few and lost a few on that ground and we won’t head to Warrington with any fear. I think the pressure is on them rather than us and we can go there and play our normal game.”

Hull travelled to Warrington in 2005, on their way to their solitary Super League Grand Final appearance, and thumped the Wolves 40-6.

Yeaman scored a try that day, against a Wolves team that featured a certain Andrew Johns, and he’s looking for more of the same on Saturday.

“We are one of six teams left in the competition and there’s no reason why we can’t get to the Grand Final, but we aren’t getting ahead of ourselves and we are focused only on going to Warrington and putting in a good performance.

“If we keep doing what we have been doing, and fix up a few areas, we can get the win.”

Warrington have won just two Super League play-off games – 18-17 over Leeds in 2006, and 47-0 against Huddersfield last season.
