WARRINGTON Wolves marched on in Super League as they recorded a ninth consecutive win by beating Leeds 33-22 at Headingley.
Youngster Harvey Livett scored a hat-trick in an impressive display starting in the back-row, a slot vacated by the serious injury to Ben Currie.
Having lost to the Rhinos at the Halliwell Jones Stadium on the opening weekend of the season, Warrington opened up an 11-0 first half lead thanks to tries from Kevin Brown and Livett.
They held an 11-4 lead at half time before the Rhinos turned things around to hit the front at 22-11 in the second half.
But four tries in 16 minutes from the Wolves, including two more from Livett, Ryan Atkins and Ben Murdoch-Masila completed an impressive comeback and send Leeds to their third defeat in four games.
Coach Steve Price said: “I felt we were always in control of the game. I was disappointed with the start of the second half, there were some calls that I couldn’t get my head around.
“Credit to Leeds, they’re a quality football team, and they scored a number of quick tries in succession but one thing I was pleased with was our ability to hang tough.
“I thought we showed a lot of resilience. I think we’ve started to turn the corner tonight in a lot of aspects.”
😏How good was this man last night?!
