JUDGING by the jubilant scenes of celebration on the pitch and in the stands after Warrington Wolves’ playoff victory at St Helens, you could be forgiven for thinking that the Wire are content just to make it to Old Trafford.

Club captain Chris Hill is having none of that.

The prop said: “We’re not just happy to be here, we want to go and win it.

“It’s a special week and we want to enjoy it, but we’re not going to play the game too early.

“We’re free from injury and everyone is vying for the 17 spots – it’ll be intense in training this week, but we’ll be ready.

“We’ve just got to take all the emotions that come with it, like we did last week against St Helens.

“The tickets are selling like hotcakes – the fans will be there and they will be loud, so we want to do it for them.”

Warrington have played in and lost three Super League Grand Finals, with prop Hill lining up in each.

But the defeats in 2012, 2013 and 2016 will be the last thing on the 30-year-old’s mind in Manchester on Saturday night.

He said: “We’re not going to be looking back on previous years when we’ve been beaten in the Grand Final.

“None of that counts, it all comes down to Saturday night.

“Whoever plays better in those 80 minutes is the winner, end of.

“You’ve got to respect possession, and I think it’s due to rain on Saturday so we’ve got to adapt our game if it does.

“There are fine margins in a final – it’s about whoever handles the ball best and takes their opportunities.

“We took our opportunities against St Helens last week and we won, it’s as simple as that.”

The prospect of being the first man to lift the trophy aloft for Warrington in more than 60 years is not something that Hilly has allowed himself to think of too heavily, in spite of the excitement of his young children.

And the Wigan-supporting side of his family have also given him their full backing.

Chris said: “The kids keeping going on about lifting the trophy at home, but I’m not thinking about it.

“We’ve got a big 80 minutes in front of us against a quality side and we’ll deal with that when it comes around.

“My wife’s mum and dad are Wigan fans, and her brother’s a big Wigan fan.

“They’re season ticket holders at Warrington as well – they come watching me home and away, so they’ll be made up for me if we do win.”

England international Hill, who joined the Wire from Leigh Centurions ahead of the 2012 season, insists that his side will not dwell on the threat Wigan pose too much despite their opposition having not lost a game since mid-July.

He added: “A final is a final, it doesn’t matter who you’re playing.

“They have threats all over the park – if they didn’t, they wouldn’t be in a final – but we’ll concentrate on our own performance.

“We’ve played Wigan so many times that we know what they’re about, and they know what we’re about – we’ve just got to concentrate on our own game, play our own way and let Wigan worry about what we’re doing.

“It’s going to be a special game and we’re more than confident.”
