SHAUN Wane has backed his patched-up side to go toe-to-toe with in-form Warrington and come out on top.

The Warriors have been doing it tough this season with injuries biting hard, and they suffered a massive blow on the eve of the game with Brett Finch failing to overcome a lower back injury.

Youngster Sam Powell should retain his place at half-back alongside new signing Matty Smith.

However, they’ll be playing behind a depleted pack with Harrison Hansen and Chris Tuson crying off with knocks sustained against Hull last week.

Darrell Goulding, Ben Flower and Paul Prescott have at least been passed fit, and Wane insists the 17 that take to the field in cherry and white will give it everything for the shirt.

“We’re going there with out chests pumped out,” Wane promised.

“It’s about 80 minutes. I want absolute commitment from them, and if we do that we’ll win the game.

“The fact is, the team I will pick will be competitive and Warrington will know they’ve been in a game.

“Warrington have got some real quality, some real attacking threats.

“You can go on and on throughout that team, there’s class throughout. I like the way they play and I like the way Tony Smith coaches.

“We need to be at our best but make no bones about it, we’ve real quality in our team as well.

“This will be a real good game to watch.”
