Price refusing to panic after Saints loss
Warrington won't be getting too down about the themselves after their 30-12 loss to St Helens, according to coach Steve Price.
The Wire were well beaten in the second half at Halliwell Jones Stadium, losing out in the Super League encounter just a couple of weeks before they go up against Saints in the Challenge Cup final.
Price, who was without a host of first-team regulars, was adamant on Thursday night that the Cup final will be a completely different affair against the Super League front runners.
"This result won't be an indication of what's going to happen in two weeks," Price said. "I'm really proud of the boys. We had a lot of guys banging on the door for an opportunity and they put their hands up.
"We lost our whole bench with 17 minutes to go. We had no one left to go back on and Chris Hill was cramping up, so we went with 12 for the last bit but they showed a lot of fighting spirit. We went down swinging.
"Hopefully they're not too serious. We're very fortunate that we have a long turnaround to our next game against Wigan."
The Wire are next in action against the Warriors on August 16 before the Challenge Cup showdown with St Helens on August 24.
