Tony Smith salutes try-scoring return of Warrington skipper Adrian Morley

Warrington celebrate one of eight tries against St Helens

I thought Saints had a real crack at us today. They tried really hard and, while the scoreline might not show it, a lot of our points were scored at the back end of each half.

Warrington coach Tony Smith was thrilled with the try-scoring comeback of veteran Adrian Morley in the Wolves' 48-22 hammering of St Helens in Manchester.

The Wolves skipper had been out of Super League action for more than three months with a ruptured bicep.

But he returned in superb style by scoring his first try for two years - and one of eight on the day for Wolves - in the last minute of the match at the Etihad Stadium, in the last match of Day One of Magic Weekend.

He was subsequently mobbed by his ecstatic team-mates and Smith said he was delighted for the 36-year-old.

"It shows the admiration our players have for our skipper," Smith said. "I thought about running on and jumping on him myself.

"He doesn't score many so when he gets one we all celebrate."

The game was effectively over as a contest by half-time when the Wolves led 30-6, with winger Chris Riley scoring two of their five tries.

Saints fought back bravely, Jordan Turner and Lance Hohaia pulling back tries but Trent Waterhouse sealed the victory.

"I thought Saints had a real crack at us today." Smith said. "They tried really hard and, while the scoreline might not show it, a lot of our points were scored at the back end of each half.

Discipline

"I thought the discipline from both teams was enormous."

Saints' second-half rally pleased coach Nathan Brown. "We had some good stuff in the second half but the most disappointing thing was that we didn't make the game hard for them," Brown said.

"In the first half our middle part of the field wasn't good at all and they obviously carved us up a bit on our right edge.

"When you play Warrington, you've got to phsyically be in the contest. Collectively we weren't quite good enough."
