Moment of truth in Wolves' search for holy grail
WARRINGTON Wolves have 80 minutes to create a sensational new chapter to their history when they face St Helens in the Grand Final eliminator on Saturday night.
Tony Smith’s men should hold no fear in pursuit of their holy grail – an Old Trafford glory night.
This is a semi-final, just like the Challenge Cup versions they have won convincingly three times in the last four years to build their desire and capability of a first league title since 1955.
And the primrose and blue boys have already convincingly won once at Langtree Park this season, so no psychological barrier there.
It is the second successive year Wolves have been in this position, with a last-minute penalty goal from Leeds’ Kevin Sinfield wrecking their dreams last year.
But the consistency being delivered from Wolves’ finest team in a generation under a coach who won two Grand Finals with Leeds shows that all the tools are in place.
Now it is all about handling the pressure and delivering when it matters most, just like they did to win the cup at Wembley last month.
Wolves’ players are so close to the reverence of 1955 Championship heroes like Brian Bevan and Harry Bath for generations to come.
