Morley has sights on double


27th July 2013

Captain Adrian Morley feels Warrington Wolves could hardly be better prepared as they seek to step up their bid for a clean sweep of the major trophies.

The Wolves are just a point behind Huddersfield Giants in Super League after winning their last seven matches and go into tomorrow's second Tetley's Challenge Cup semi-final against Hull FC as clear favourites to reach Wembley for a fourth time in five years.

"This year has been a bit stop-start and it's only the last couple of months that we've really got a lot of confidence under our belt," said Morley, who was out for three months earlier in the year with a ruptured bicep.

"We've players coming back fit as well so there's really healthy competition for places, which is what you need.

"We're sitting pretty, without being too cocky, and hopefully we can kick on and raise the bar even further.

"We went very close to winning the Grand Final last year and we've virtually the same squad so that's not out of our reach.

"Even the league leaders’ shield is a possiblity after (Wigan Warriors' defeat on) Monday night.

"We want to win every game we go into. Last year we learnt a lot of lessons and hopefully they will be beneficial and we can do the double or treble."
