IT has been a hectic week but finally, the time for action is near.

Warrington Wolves step back onto the field for the first time in more than a fortnight this evening.

They had planned to face Salford but after player availability issues left the Red Devils unable to compete, Huddersfield Giants have stepped into the breach.

Here's a snippet of what Steve Price has said about tonight's opponents:

"They’re going to be a desperate team and will be hurting from their loss to Wakefield.

"It’s the strongest team they’ve been able to put out for a long time now.

"They’ve got two quality halves in Lee Gaskell and Aidan Sezer, who has been the form player of the competition.

"They have a strong forward pack and Jacob Wardle has been lighting it up on the left side.

"It’s going to be a tough challenge but one we’re really looking forward to. We’ve got to keep getting better and growing our game to get it where we want it to be."

And now the view from the opposition...

Fans have been sharing their thoughts on the game too on our 'Warrington Wolves - Warrington Guardian' Facebook page...

Daniel Murphy: Anything could happen this evening, the amount of game time we have had and (not so) recent performances, couldn't call it. 

Al Worrall: Confident. We may be a bit rusty at first but think we'll pick it up. Should stick at least 20 on them.
