Warrington's Garreth Carvell says the Wolves have extra desire going into the Super League play-offs after losing in the Challenge Cup quarter-finals.

Warrington entertain Huddersfield Giants on Friday in the play-offs.

Carvell told BBC Radio Merseyside: "It's massive. We've lost the Challenge Cup, but we've managed to get the League Leaders Shield.

"It's a different league now and we've got to start from scratch. It's going to be another tough game."

Carvell has been named in the Super League Dream Team along with Wolves' team-mates Ben Westwood and Joel Monaghan and says he has never regretted moving to the Halliwell Jones Stadium from Hull.

"It was a bit of a risk," said Carvell. "A few people laughed at me when I said I wanted trophies and a winning team because Warrington had the reputation for being there or thereabouts and the also-rans.

"I knew what structures were in place and the owner had a lot of vision for the future, so it was a bit of a no-brainer really."
