Smith expecting big things from Sydney Roosters session

Warrington Wolves coach Tony Smith has revealed that he thinks the club’s youngsters should benefit hugely from the opposed session they will hold with Sydney Roosters tonight.

The Wolves will train with Trent Robinson’s Roosters as Sydney prepare for their clash against St Helens on Friday night at Langtree Park and Smith, speaking to the Warrington Guardian, says he’s looking forward to it.

The Wolves actually went to Sydney a few years ago and trained with them, and Smith says the opposed session will help his young squad to learn plenty ahead of the resumption of their Super League campaign next weekend, following the World Club Series.

“We’re with the Roosters doing an opposed session. I look forward to that and hosting them,” he said.

“They’ve hosted us at their home a couple of years ago so we’re really pleased we can reciprocate.

“It’s a good opposed session for them and we learned a lot from them last time, hopefully that’s going to be a useful exercise for our young players.”
