Just what Warrington Wolves needed ahead of semi final
8:30am Tuesday 10th July 2012 in Wolves news
WOLVES believe their tough workout with Catalan Dragons has more benefits than two Super League points.
It has hardened them up for Sunday’s Challenge Cup semi final against Huddersfield Giants at the Salford City Stadium.
Wolves’ head of coaching and rugby Tony Smith said: “It was good, particularly after last week (48-24 loss at Salford).
“The contrast of us in terms of how organised our defence was – it was a real step up in intensity.
“I thought it was a really high class game of rugby league.
“Neither team were probably at their best in terms of attack but it was committed defence and you had to work for everything you got.
“And that’s good. I think it’s good to have one of those games.
“It was good hard rugby league and I think Catalan are a very good team.
“I can see why they are going to be tough to beat when the back end of the season comes around. They’ll be up there threatening this competition.”
