Warrington co-captain Jack Hughes wore a cricketer's box to help him get through the pain and play a huge role in his side's shock Challenge Cup triumph.

The Wolves turned the form book on its head with an 18-4 victory over neighbours St Helens, the runaway Super League leaders who went into Saturday's game as heavy favourites.

Hughes was one of Warrington's heroes, pushing hooker Daryl Clark for the Lance Todd Trophy as man of the match, just three weeks after suffering a ruptured testicle that put his Wembley appearance in doubt.

"I was always confident of playing," he said. "There was just that contact side of things that meant there was a bit of doubt.

"I had a box on, similar to what the cricket lads wear, and it did the job. It was pretty uncomfortable at the start but, once you get out there, you don't think about it."

Hughes' former Wigan team-mate Josh Charnley led the praises for the England Knights captain, who has been promoted to Wayne Bennett's senior squad for the end-of-season Great Britain tour.

"I came through the system with Jack and played many games with him so I've seen him grow into the player he is," Charnley said.
