Warrington triumphant over youthful Leeds

Warrington Wolves ended their three-match losing run after a 32-6 victory over Leeds Rhinos at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.

The Wire started well, and got the opening try, as Toby King rose highest to collect a kick and go over. Stefan Ratchford added the conversion for a six-point advantage.

However, Leeds hit back soon after as Sam Walters got over. Jarrod O’Connor converted to level the game.

It was a laboured first half, which showed by Warrington taking the two with a penalty right on half time. Ratchford made no mistake after a high tackle.

Wire got their second try 11 minutes into the second half, as Matty Ashton finished off a good move. Ratchford missed the conversion, meaning they had a six point lead.

Just after the hour, Wire got breathing space as Ben Currie got in on the act and scored. Ratchford was back on target to get the Wire up to 18 points.

Ratchford then added a penalty soon after to keep the scoreboard ticking.

With the clock winding down, Daryl Clark managed to bundle his way over from dummy half for another try. Ratchford scored the conversion.

Ashton then got a second right on full time to put a cherry on top of that performance. Ratchford converted once again to complete a fine personal night for him.

Warrington now have a week off before facing Catalans Dragons at the Stade Gilbert Brutus on 26th October.

As for Leeds, they now have the Challenge Cup Final on Saturday to look forward to, before facing St Helens next Friday.
