AS he prepares to lead Warrington Wolves out at Old Trafford, Steve Price says he would be “ecstatic” to deliver a first Super League title to the town.

The Wire take on Wigan Warriors in the Super League Grand Final on Saturday, kick off 6pm, with the hope of ending 63 years of hurt.

Not since 1955 have Warrington been able to lay claim to a championship-winning rugby league team and since the Super League era began, the town has mourned three Grand Final defeats.

Two of those Old Trafford heartbreaks – in 2013 and 2016 – came at the hands of the Warriors and Price says it is about time the boot was on the other foot.

“It’s about us now, it’s our time,” he told the Guardian.

“It would be special for the town, the playing group and everyone involved with the club.

“Simon Moran has invested heavily for a few years now. He, Stuart Middleton and the rest of the board have believed in me.

“From when I first arrived, I’ve always said it’s not about me and it never will be.

“It’s about the players and I’ll be ecstatic for them if we can do it.

“It’s up to us to deliver on our performance now.”

Barring any late injuries in training, Price is set to name the same team that stunned St Helens in Thursday’s semi-final.

Prop Mike Cooper was forced off with an eye injury during the 18-13 win at the Totally Wicked Stadium, but Price confirmed he would be fit to play at Old Trafford.

It means Toby King and Bodene Thompson, who edged out Ryan Atkins and Harvey Livett last week, are likely to keep their spots.

They will face Wigan for the sixth time this season, with the Warriors currently leading the head-to-head record between them 3-2.

Just as he was against Saints last week, Price is happy to play the underdog and says all the pressure will be on their neighbours, who will play under head coach Shaun Wane for the final time.

One of The Wire’s finest days of 2018 was a 23-0 hammering of Wigan in the Challenge Cup in June, but Price has warned fans not to expect a repeat in terms of style.

“The players have worked their backsides off to put themselves in this position. The coaching staff deserve a mention, too,” he said.

“It’s about getting our preparation right now and delivering our best 80 minutes on Saturday night.

“No-one is giving us a chance on Saturday, which is fine by us.

“All the pressure is on Wigan, but we’ll enjoy the week.

“They are a totally different team for that day (the Challenge Cup quarter-final.)

“That was a long time ago, we both have different personnel.

“We bring a slightly different style now as well, so that game is irrelevant.

“We’ve had some really good battles throughout the season. It’s 3-2 to them at the moment and we’ve both got a lot of experience.

“Hopefully we can put on a really good spectacle of rugby and the supporters pack out the Theatre of Dreams.”
