Michael Monaghan impressed head coach Tony Smith during Warrington's win at Hull
Sometimes, when you sit on the bus for a couple of hours, you don't have the same energy, and we had the first-half blues.

Warrington head coach Tony Smith was pleased with the way his team lifted their game when they needed to at Hull.
The Wolves were without influential stand-off Lee Briers once again and trailed at half-time but, with Michael Monaghan inspirational, they scored four tries in 12 second-half minutes and eventually won 24-10.
Smith said: "We felt like we were a little bit off the pace that we like to play at in the first half.
"That can happen in games but that's not taking anything away from Hull. They threw some things at us and both teams defended fairly well.
"Sometimes, when you sit on the bus for a couple of hours, you don't have the same energy, and we had the first-half blues.
"Somebody had to lift it a bit because it was so evenly matched. I like the fact that we could tough it out and lift it when needed.
"I thought there were some real stand-out performers today, Michael Monaghan was back to some of his best play. Not everything came off but he was dangerous, he was running, and he was pulling some strings for us."
Hull coach Peter Gentle said: "We've got to string an 80-minute performance together. We are still only putting 60 minutes of footy together at the minute, so we got what we deserved out of it.
"It's hard to see the positives at the moment because we are really disappointed. We showed in the first half that we're capable of matching it with them but to put a 15-minute period in the second half together like we did is unacceptable."
Daniel Holdsworth missed the match due to the continuing effects of a concussion he suffered last week against St Helens.
Gentle said: "He got knocked out last week after setting up that first try. He had headaches during the week, then trained on Wednesday and the headaches returned.
"We couldn't risk him and he went for a jog early this morning but he still wasn't right."Super League. Click here to bet.
