Smith to welcome back senior stars

After surviving a major scare at London Broncos last Saturday, Warrington head coach Tony Smith is hopeful that the return to action of a number of senior stars can help the team continue their unbeaten run during the Super 8s.

The Wolves host Leigh Centurions on Saturday evening and their visitors will be desperate to win, following a home defeat to Widnes Vikings last week that saw them drop into the Million Pound Game.

Warrington areĀ 1.16 to win the match and Leigh 5.00.

Smith's side appear to have already done enough to stave off the threat of relegation, but the Wolves boss is keen to end the season on a high note, with the help of several returning players.

"We've got a couple of boys carrying a bit of an injury into games and that probably showed a little bit against London, but there were no further injuries, and hopefully that will help provide a boost," said Smith, who has been forced to shuffle his options on several occasions this season.

"It was nice having Kurt Gidley back. If we get another couple of bodies - Ben Currie's not far away and even Harvey Livett's not too far away - then we could be in pretty good shape for the final couple of rounds.

"We should also have Mike Cooper and Joe Westerman back on Saturday which could be handy at the moment to just freshen us up. We want to continue out winning run and finish on a positive note."
