CHAMPIONS Saints have something of a score to settle on Saturday when they face a Warrington side that not only stopping them claiming a clean sweep of trophies last term – but also nilled them earlier in this campaign.

And with words that should fire up the Saints pack even more, Wolves back row Matt Davis had his own theory on why Wolves came out on top last time around and at Wembley.

Ahead of Saturday's Challenge Cup quarter final some Saints fans have dug out an interview Davis gave to the Warrington Guardian after that last triumph over Saints in February, in which he accused the pack “not wanting it.”

This was the game in which Saints were without a cluster of forwards, including Kyle Amor, Morgan Knowles and James Roby – and then lost Alex Walmsley in the warm-up. So there was mitigation.

After that game Davis said: “We knew what we could do if we took it to the Saints pack. It really set a platform for us.

"We did it in the Challenge Cup Final and we did it here.

"I don’t want to say too much but if we take it to them, they don’t really want it.

"They shy off and that’s what happened. They didn’t really want to carry the ball at us."

There is no doubt that Warrington, who will have all their players back from 14 day self-isolation, will again be fired up as cup holders– but how will the Saints six respond?
