JACK Hughes is happy with the way Warrington Wolves overcame ‘disruption’ this week to achieve two points at London Broncos.

With two changes in the starting pack, an eight-hour journey down to London and some reshuffling in the second half after an injury to Blake Austin there was plenty to distract The Wire.

But without the likes of Chris Hill (suspended) and Sitaleki Akauola (rested) they got the job done, scoring all their points in the first half in a 36-6 win, as they extended the gap on third-placed Hull FC to six points.

“We’re coming to the business end now and performance is what is most important,” said captain Hughes, who, along with Jake Mamo, Toby King, Tom Lineham, Bryson Goodwin and Mike Cooper, crossed for a try.

“We’re trying to get everything in place, everything right, and come the business end of the season we want to be really executing our game plans.

“We’re in a good place. We’ve got the Challenge Cup semi-final coming up, so that’s in the back of our mind.

“We’re still trying to push for Saints (current leaders). Whether it’s doable or not, that’s in their hands.

“We’re just chalking every week off and trying to be at our best every week.

“These kind of places (London Broncos) are where complacency can sometimes kick in and that had been a massive focus of ours this week to be on our game, execute the game plan and really challenge ourselves to not let any complacency to kick in and I thought we did that.

“With the way we started the game it was kind of won at half time. There’s a couple of things to fix up from the second half but overall it was pleasing to keep London to six points.

“There’s been a bit of disruption this week and we had a bit more in the second half so it’s a big rap to the boys in that we stood up well.

“We wanted to start the game well, we wanted no complacency and the only way to get that is to start well, start with loads of energy.

“There’s not a lot of noise out there (at London home games) so you want to create your own environment, your own energy, and that was a big focus for us and we ticked it off so we’re happy.

“The (artificial) pitch was good. It’s not what we’re used to but in a way it kind of suited us because we like playing fast, we’ve got a lot of speed around the ruck, and we kind of used it to our advantage.

“The bus got a puncture so that put a couple of hours on us. We were pretty hot and clammy but stuff like that happens and I’m just glad we came up the day before.

“It takes a bit of the logistics strain off you on game day by coming the day before.

“You can have a lie in, you can get all the best food in you because the club put all the best food on in the hotel. For me it’s the best sort of preparation rather than coming here on game day, eating food from services, and you can really prep to your best.”

Focus switched to the visit by Salford on Friday in the team’s post-match discussions in the changing rooms.

“They really got one over on us on Good Friday,” said Hughes.

“That was disappointing for us. We’ve really set our standards high this season and we were well below that day so we’ve got a lot to put right and we feel that we owe Salford one.”
