Warrington Wolves got back to winning ways in emphatic style after a 44-12 over Leigh Centurions at the Totally Wicked Stadium.

Warrington took the lead after 10 minutes. Tom Lineham found himself in space out wide and dived into the corner to score. Stefan Ratchford converted for a six-point lead.

Almost 15 minutes later, Warrington doubled their lead, when Ratchford broke through the defence and got the ball off to Toby King, who scored. Ratchford then scored the conversion.

It was soon back-to-back tries, as Charnley broke down the opposite side, and passed inside to Jake Mamo, who did the rest. Ratchford was off-target for the first time.

Right on the stroke of half-time, Warrington got their fourth try, this time King turned provider for Gareth Widdop to score under the posts. Ratchford was back on target to make it a 22-point lead at the break.

It took Warrington 13 minutes in the second half to get their fifth try of the afternoon, as Widdop’s kick through was collected by Ben Currie, who scored. Ratchford was on target with the conversion.

But Leigh managed to hit back just four mimutes later, as Adam Sidlow dove over from close range. Ben Reynolds scored the conversion.

However, they were not back in it for long, as four minutes later, Warrington scored again as they kept the ball alive well, and King went over for his second. Ratchford scored the conversion to stretch their lead back out to 28 points.

Eight minutes later, Warrington got another as Widdop’s cutout pass found Tom Lineham, who grabbed his second in the corner. Ratchford was off target with the conversion attempt.

With five minutes left, they put the icing on the cake, as another break down the left hand side saw Widdop collect his second try. Ratchford was back on target to extend their lead to 38 points.

However, the final word would go to Leigh, as a deflected kick fell perfectly to Ryan Brierley, who scored. Reynolds added the conversion.
