Tony Smith wants his Warrington Wolves players to “repay (the fans) for the support they’ve shown us” when they take on Leigh Centurions tomorrow night.
It has been a dreadful season for last year’s Grand Finalists and a place in the Qualifiers looks likely as the Wolves are three points adrift of Huddersfield with as many games remaining.
The signings of Peta Hiku and Ben Pomeroy have bolstered the ranks ahead of the Super 8s but Smith admits that “we are going to probably find ourselves in the Middle 8s”
“We owe our supporters a performance after everything that has gone on this year,” he told the Warrington Guardian.
“They have helped us enormously at different stages and we’re going to need their help again. We’d like to repay them for the support they have shown us.
“It’s important for us to get bragging rights over the guys down the road.
Smith went on to say about where his side may be after the end of the regular season, while also noting the task at hand on Friday.
“We are probably going to find ourselves in the Middle 8s but what it doesn’t change is that you try to win every game as a rugby league player or coach,” Smith added.
“If that is the case, we’ve got to front up and do our best in every game no matter what jersey our opposition is wearing and what stadium we are playing in.
“We’ll address that down the track, it’s about doing a job on Leigh this week for our own personal pride.
“We suffered a defeat at their place and we’d like to reciprocate the feeling.”
