Coach Smith is pleased as Warrington Wolves edge past Catalan 25-12.

Warrington Wolves coach Tony Smith has praised his side’s character after their 25-12 win over Catalan Dragons in the south of France last night.

The Cheshire side are now a point behind leaders Wigan Warriors with two games remaining, and Smith paid tribute to his Wolves’ hard work.

"It was a tough win and a game that could have gone either way," he said.

"Both teams had their chances, but on the whole I thought it was a good game of rugby league. It took some character from us to come back, get ourselves into and keep ourselves in the game.

"A lot of our guys were under their best out there tonight and the conditions played some part in that and tough opposition played some part in that too."

Warrington play Wigan at the Halliwell Jones Stadium on Sunday, September 4 before taking on Hull FC on Friday, September 9.
