STEVE Price has called upon Warrington Wolves’ senior players to step up and lead his side into the Challenge Cup semi-finals.

Victory at Hull Kingston Rovers tomorrow will keep alive their chances of reaching the final at Wembley Stadium for the second year in a row.

Standing in their way is a Robins side that has lost twice to The Wire this year, including a 54-6 thrashing at KCOM Craven Park on Easter Monday.

Tim Sheens’ side also have Super League’s leakiest defence but Price is wary of what will be thrown at his men at the other end of the field.

He wants the leaders within his group to lift those around them to make sure of their progress to the last four.

“We’ve been really good with flipping our mindset from Super League to Challenge Cup then back to Super League again. That’s what we need again this week,” he said.

“I’m looking for my senior players in particular to stand up this week. I need a really strong performance from them from minute one.

“We have to be on point defensively.

“Their kicking game through Josh Drinkwater and Danny McGuire has been their big focus for a long time now.

“We’ve got to be prepared for a couple of trick plays from them.

“Offensively, we just have to keep building our game.

“We’re always talking about chasing that perfect display – we get that it’s a work in progress but we’re taking some good steps forward.

“We always prepare well but it’s a matter of what we take in between the ears now.

“We’ll go down there on Thursday, stay overnight and then tune up to go again on Friday.

“We need our best performance to date. It’s knockout football and we only get one chance.”
