Saints and Wire to square off in Challenge Cup final
St Helens and Warrington Wolves will square off at Wembley on August 24 for the right to lift the Challenge Cup.
The pair came through testing semi-final affairs at The University of Bolton Stadium in difficult conditions on Saturday.
Warrington and Hull FC, who sit second and third respectively in the Super League standings, kicked off proceedings in Lancashire.
A tight first half saw Wolves leading 10-8 before they stepped up their game in the second period to claim a 22-14 victory.
They have subsequently earned a place in the final for the third time in the last four years and head coach Steve Price has urged his men to get the job done this time around.
Price said: "This time, we want to be brides not bridesmaids. I'm really pleased for the boys - we've had a rough couple of weeks with a few speedbumps but I always knew what team we had.
"That typified what we represent today."
Super League leaders St Helens will stand in Warrington's way in the final after ending Halifax's fairytale run.
The Championship part-timers gave their all but ultimately couldn't keep Saints at bay as they fell to a 26-2 defeat in the second semi.
With the League Leaders' Shield pretty much in the bag, sitting 10 points clear of second-placed Warrington, Justin Holbrook's men could end the season with multiple pieces of silverware.
Holbrook said: "It was very difficult. Full credit to Halifax, I thought their heart and desire was tremendous - if I was their coach I'd be so proud of the boys.
"It was testing for us and probably half-time came at a good time to regroup.
"I'm made up for everyone that we've got the chance to go to Wembley. As you get a little bit older these opportunities don't come too often."
