WARRINGTON Wolves will have the home advantage their third place finish in the Super League table merits when they start their play-offs campaign next week.

Both of the first round fixtures will be played at The Halliwell Jones Stadium, with The Wire facing Hull FC on Thursday and then Catalans Dragons hosting Leeds Rhinos on the Friday.

Both games will kick off at 7.45pm and will be shown live on Sky Sports.

If Wire overcome Hull, they will visit St Helens in the semi-finals the following Friday and the winners of the Catalans-Leeds contest will make the journey to Wigan on the Thursday.

But if Hull beat Warrington, they will head to Wigan in the Thursday semi-final as the lowest placed qualifiers and Saints would host Catalans or Leeds on the Friday.
