Wolves boss hails win
Scrappy start but superb says Smith
Tony Smith saluted his players after Warrington's 10-try show sunk Huddersfield in a 54-6 romp just a week after their Wembley win over Leeds.
The Wolves coach admitted his side had not been quite up to par following their Challenge Cup victory earl;y in the match but said that they more than made up for it in the later stages.
"We were very scrappy with the ball in the first half but the team did not do a lot of training early in the week," he said:
"The skill level was not on the money but the attitude was fantastic and our defence was awesome.
"There was only one slip-up and effort-wise I could see how hard we were making it for our opponents.
"We completed less than half our sets in the first half but picked up our skills in the second half and I was not surprised about the scoreline once we took control."
Smith also paid tribute to Brett Hodgson, who followed up his Lance Todd Trophy award in the final with another man-of-the-match show, scoring a try and setting up three others.
"Brett turns up and plays footy," he continued. "He was one of our sharper players today and a well-deserved man of the match. He came into the line superbly."
Huddersfield boss Paul Anderson said: "The second half was ridiculous but how good were Warrington? We gifted them possession and never helped ourselves.
"It was a scrappy game and if we had taken advantage early on it may have been a different story.
"We have to dust ourselves down and try to move on and find a recipe to improve.
"We have had a disruptive week in training and Matty Dawson only found out at eight o'clock this morning he would be playing but wasn't our worst player by any means."
