Ratchford raring to go for Wolves

January 17, 2013 16:27:35 UK

Stefan Ratchford is raring to go for the new Super League season and he is looking for Warrington Wolves to 'go one better' by winning the Grand Final.

The 24-year-old utility man is set to embark on his second season at the Halliwell Jones Stadium having joined from Salford for the start of the 2012 campaign.

And, having helped Tony Smith's side lift the Challenge Cup at the expense of the Leeds Rhinos, the season ended in disappointment when the same opponents defeated them in the Grand Final at Old Trafford in October.

Speaking from the Wolves' warm-weather training camp in Tenerife, Ratchford claims the team are fired up and ready for the new season, which starts on 3rd February with a home game against Castleford.

It will take a lot to emulate last year but hopefully we can do, and go one better in the Grand Final and finish off with both trophies rather than just the one.

Smith has not brought any new faces into the Warrington squad from outside and Ratchford feels that will only benefit them.

He told the club's official website: "I can't wait to get started.

"It will take a lot to emulate last year but hopefully we can do, and go one better in the Grand Final and finish off with both trophies rather than just the one. As last year, hopefully I can get in the starting 17 and then see how it goes from there.

"We've not brought anyone in from outside we've just promoted the younger lads. A few who were eying up the squad this last year have come into the top 25 so it's going to be tough.

"They got their chance to play a few games last year so they've got that experience and will want to play more keeping some of the older lads on their toes. Everyone will be playing at 100% every week to keep their place in the squad."

Warrington can be backed at 1.72 to go one better and win the Grand Final, while they are 4.33 to retain their Challenge Cup crown.
