CHRIS Hill has called on the Wire faithful to get The Halliwell Jones Stadium “rocking” when St Helens visit tomorrow, Friday.

Warrington are tasked with becoming the first side to stop Justin Holbrook’s side winning a Super League game in 2018 Hill says his teammates will make the game “as tough as possible” for their neighbours.

“It would mean a lot to beat them,” he told the Guardian.

“It’s a derby for us so we’d be up for it regardless, whether they’d won all their games or lost them all.

“They’re playing well, but we’re looking forward to it and we hope the place is rocking.

“The two performances we’ve put in at home have been good, especially the Wigan game.

“They’re coming to our place and we want to make it as tough as possible for them to take the two points.

“We know it’s going to be tough for ourselves, but if we can concentrate on what we do well and take the errors out of our game, we’ll be there or thereabouts.

“We’ve worked hard on our combinations and our plan. We haven’t focused too much on St Helens.

“We’ve shown against Widnes and Wigan that we can do it, but we need a bit more consistency at the minute and that comes down to everyone knowing their roles.”

Much focus has been placed on The Wire’s discipline after they gave away 10 penalties during Friday’s 21-12 defeat to Hull, with four of them being converted into points by Marc Sneyd.

England international prop Hill says each individual player has to take responsibility for cleaning up their act.

However, the 29-year-old says it is “naïve” to expect Wolves to cut out penalties completely.

“We hindered ourselves more than Hull hurt us with errors and penalties in key areas again. We were letting them out too easy and it killed us,” he said.

“You have to put the onus on yourself individually. It’s all about self-discipline.

“If we lose a tackle, we can’t be fighting back. We need to be smarter in that regard.

“We’re not naïve enough to think we’re going to go through a game without giving a single penalty away, but we need to reduce them to give ourselves a fighting chance.”

Hill is likely to be in direct competition with England teammate Alex Walmsley tomorrow in what will be a key front-row battle.

Walmsley has been used mainly from the bench by Holbrook in 2018 and Hill says The Wire must be wary of his impact.

The 6ft 5in prop turned down interest from the NRL to sign a new long-term deal with Saints ahead of the new campaign and Hill, who roomed with Walmsley at the Rugby League World Cup, is glad he chose to remain in Super League.

“Al’s a really good player. I roomed with him at the World Cup and we’ve become good mates,” he said.

“He’s started off really well coming off the bench, which gives them some good impact.

“He attract defenders, takes two carries a set and works extremely hard, so we have to negate that.

“We want to keep the best English players here, rather than ferrying them out to Australia.

“We want our fans to watch our best talent every week rather than just at the end of the year for England.

“It was his decision to stay and he won’t have taken it lightly, but I’m sure he would have cracked it down in Australia.”
