Play-offs, the highs and lows
11:04am Thursday 26th September 2013 in Wolves news
THE Super League play offs have brought a real mix of highs and lows for Wolves, while expectation has catapulted over the past four seasons.
Looking back, such was the club’s status at the time, there was delight in Wolves simply reaching the big games section for the first time in 2003. And it capped off the final year at Wilderspool despite the 25-12 loss in a brave display away to Wigan Warriors.
Not being in the reckoning in 2004 was disappointing and felt like a step backwards, while there were tears in the stands in 2005 when Andrew Johns came over for his guest spell and the team flopped 40-6 at home to Hull.
Wolves were desperately unlucky not to reach the semi finals in 2006 after knocking out Tony Smith’s Leeds 18-17 courtesy of a Lee Briers drop goal, before a late interception try from Lesley Vainikolo broke Wolves’ hearts at Bradford in the next game.
Absences in 2007 and 2009 sandwiched a 46-8 thumping at Catalan Dragons, while 2010 brought a defeat at St Helens and a home loss to Huddersfield, with a Leroy Cudjoe interception try making the difference.
Last year finally saw Wolves reach the Grand Final, via wins against Hull and St Helens after an opening home loss to the red V men.
