ALMOST a week on and memories of last week's play-off defeat to Hull KR are still fresh in the memory for Warrington Wolves.

As the Robins prepare to face Catalans Dragons this evening for a place at Old Trafford, the wound-licking continues at The Halliwell Jones Stadium following another dismal play-off failure.

Our resident statistician 'Stanski' takes a look at some unwanted records set during Friday's debacle...

IT'S hard to write this when you’ve seen your beloved team crumble in front of your very eyes.

Warrington failed to score in a knockout game for the first time at the Halliwell Jones Stadium – the lowest before Friday was a 6-40 demolition by the other Hull club (those in black and white) as they spoilt the Andrew Johns party with dreams of glory unfulfilled in the play-offs in September 2005.

In fact, you have to go back 45 years to March 1976 – when Warrington lost 0-6 to Widnes at the old Wilderspool in a Challenge Cup quarter final – to find the last time the home club failed to trouble the scoreboard.

I was also there at Knowsley Road, St.Helens in January 1996 when Saints humiliated us 80-0 in a Regal Trophy semi final.

It was the game that would see the departure of another Australian coach, Brian Johnson.

They say you’re only as good as your last game, but when that next match is not until the start of next season, the pain is prolonged!
