Warrington coach not worried by Wolves' wastefulness
TONY Smith is not worrying about his side’s goal kicking just yet, even if they did miss five of their six attempts on goal against Wakefield Trinity Wildcats.
Wolves still managed a 26-14 win against their play-off chasing opponents, but the absence of Brett Hodgson from his usual kicking duties has seen a sharp decrease in Wolves’ accuracy from the kicking tee.
Stefan Ratchford missed four attempts and Chris Bridge one in the victory that takes Wolves second in the Super League table, all while Brett Hodgson watched from the other end of The Halliwell Jones Stadium.
Smith explained: “Hodgson has a little something in his knee that is bothering him.
“Not enough for him not to play, but enough to mean that we have to take precautions.
“If he kicks he might miss out, so we’d rather him not kick.
“It would have been nice to kick half those, it would have made the score look a bit nicer.
“But if that is the worst of it, we can live with that.
“We would rather have Brett not kicking and be on the field. I’ll live with the missed goals at the moment.”
