Back to Wembley for Warrington

Wolves are going back to Wembley and forward Chris Hill can't wait to be part of it.
The 2012 Carnegie Challenge Cup Final will be a repeat of 2010 between the Wolves and Leeds Rhinos.
The Rhinos booked their place on Saturday with a win over Wigan and Wolves secured theirs with a victory over Huddersfield Giants yesterday evening.
Can the Wolves make it three wins in four years?
Prop Chris Hill joined the Wolves at the start of this season and put in another strong performance yesterday commented on by coach Tony Smith.
"I thought our front row stood up early. That young boy Chris Hill keeps on surprising some people but not me any more, I'm not surprised he's just a terrific young player. He's got the chance to play with and learn from some of the veterans like Moz, Carvell and Woody who've been around for a day or two! Hill is learning and soaking it all up from them and going our there and doing a great job."
Hill said: "It was a real buzz to be out there. I have to thank Tony for keeping the faith in me. I have never been in situations like that. I know I was in the Northern Rail Cup final but this is a different level this. He kept the faith in me throughout the year and hopefully I have a done a job out there.
"To come into a team like this and in my first year get to Wembley, it is unreal. The players around me, like Briers, Morley and others, are bringing a different game out of me. They have been there and done it. You get a calmness from having them around, especially before big games like this. To have them around calms you down and they really help you. They have been there, they know these situations, and to look up at them and see how they react to things helps you keep calm."
And on booking a place at Wembley he added: "It is something that is hard to put at the back of your mind, but you have to try and kick on. We have got Super League to try and win too, so that needs to be our focus.
"We have said from day one that we want to be a team that wins both Super League and Challenge Cup in the same year. I think with the guys and the motivation we have here, we have a really good chance."
