Warrington Wolves captain Chris Hill confident that regular half-back pairing can help find consistency

Warrington captain Chris Hill is confident the restoration of his club's regular half-back pairing can help them find the consistency that has proved so elusive so far this year.

New Wolves coach Steve Price was hoping for big things from the club's marquee close-season signing Tyrone Roberts but he has yet to form an effective link with his half-back partner Kevin Brown.

Sky Bet: Warrington Wolves are 13/8 to secure victory over St. Helens on Friday night

They have appeared together just twice in the first five matches of the Betfred Super League season, with Roberts sitting out two games with a knee problem and Brown missing last Friday's defeat at Hull with concussion.

However, Roberts is set to play his third successive game when unbeaten leaders St Helens visit the Halliwell Jones Stadium on Friday and Brown, who has kept his place in England coach Wayne Bennett's elite performance squad, will be back alongside him.

"We've been a little bit hit and miss," admitted Hill. "We haven't had a consistent half combination, with Tyrone having his knock and Browny (Kevin Brown) getting knocked out.

Sky Bet: Warrington Wolves are 10/1 to win the Super League Grand Final this season

"Browny's been good for us, it's good to get him back. He's raring to go in training and him and Tyrone are looking sharp.

"It's been really positive this week. Our defence is still pretty strong, we just have to cut out the errors and silly penalties. We just need some consistency."
