Tony Smith is hoping his Warrington team can come to terms with the change in weather in time for their Grand Final debut.

Although the Wolves have won three Challenge Cup titles in the past four years, those successes have come on warm summer afternoons at Wembley.

However Warrington face a cold, wet evening in Manchester when they bid for a first league title for 57 years against Smith's former club Leeds - winners of four Grand Finals in the past five seasons.

Smith said: "They're very experienced and very good at it. But I don't think it's too daunting for our boys.

"I would hope that because we've had finals and big-game experience in other ways that may well steady our nerves.

"I think we've learned some lessons in the last few weeks about how to play at this time of the year. That was important for us.

"Leeds keep talking about how the rugby is different at this time of the year and it is. It's colder and wetter and it's hard to play expansive footie.

"It's a different formula so hopefully we'll be able to come up with the right formula for next week."
