Short turnaround to Warrington’s benefit, says Smith

Warrington Wolves coach Tony Smith believes that a short turnaround from last weekend’s draw against Hull Kingston Rovers will be to his side’s benefit.

The Wolves were unable to put 12-man Hull KR away last Friday at the Lighstream Stadium, but face a quick turnaround to play again this week when they take on Salford tonight.

And although usually outspoken about the concept of playing two games in quick succession, Smith believes that, on this occasion, it could be a good thing for his group.

He also says he’s expecting a strong response from his side given what he’s seen in training this week.

“The players have been good this week in terms of it being a short turnaround,” he told the Warrington Guardian..

“We’ve got over some bumps and bruises as well as the disappointment of only getting a point out of Hull KR.

“It’s given us a chance to get back on the park quickly, it’s been building up and we’ve been very sharp so I’m looking forward to a really good performance.”
