Smith not pushing Wolves panic button just yet

Warrington coach Tony Smith remains confident in his side’s chances this season despite watching the Wolves slump to their fifth loss in 10 games against Castleford yesterday.

After an encouraging Good Friday victory over Widnes, Warrington looked to have finally hit form, but the Tigers inflicted a 40-6 defeat yesterday and Wire now sit eighth in the Super League table, just a point ahead of Hull KR.

“I can remember a feeling of going to Catalan about two years ago and getting pumped by a similar score,” said Smith.

“But I think we went on to win the Challenge Cup that year and finish the year very, very strong so some of these days can really bring you together as a group and focus you.

“That’s what we’re going to have to do, we’ll get out there again in Super League in a couple of weeks’ time and our focus will turn over to Challenge Cup this week and we’ll regroup and refocus.

“Nobody shone for us out there. I’m not saying people didn’t try, but there wasn’t too many shiners or glowing lights in our team.”
