Higham expects Warrington to bounce back sooner rather than later

Leigh captain and former Warrington hooker Micky Higham has insisted the Wolves will come good sooner rather than later.

The Centurions are looking for a third victory of the new season tonight when they take on Tony Smith’s side – who are the only team in the competition without a point to their name.

But Higham believes that the Wolves will hit their straps eventually, saying that they have too much ability to be stuck to the bottom of the table.

“Obviously the start to the season hasn’t gone according to plan for them,” said Higham. “They had that great win against Brisbane on a night when the Halliwell Jones Stadium really came alive.

“No one expected Warrington to lose their first four games in Super League but there is so much quality in the squad that they will soon be back to winning ways, you can be sure about that.”

Should Warrington lose tonight it would match their worst start to a season for eight years – and Higham believes that as the season goes on, the Wolves will get better and better.

“When the better weather comes, Warrington will be back to their best as they are a top-of-the-ground side with so much quality.

“A lot of their key players have missed the start of the season through injury and they are all itching to get back into things as soon as they can.”
