WARRINGTON Wolves scored 30 unanswered points in the second half as they fought back from 12-0 down to beat Hull FC.
Coach Steve Price revealed after the match that he had read a poem by Ebenezer Elliott to inspire his players as they trailed at the break.
Hull’s 12 first half points all came within the first 13 minutes as Dean Hadley and Mickey Paea both scored tries, converted by Jake Connor.
It took six second half minutes for the Wolves to finally break their duck, Harvey Livett celebrating his new two-year deal with a try, which he converted himself.
Kevin Brown then dummied his way through for a try, also converted by Livett, to tie the scores at 12-all.
Warrington hit the front on the hour mark as Ben Murdoch-Masila found his way over from dummy half for 18-12.
They backed that up with another score four minutes later through Josh Charnley and by 70 minutes it was game over as Ryan Atkins added a fifth try.
It sets up the Wolves nicely for next week’s Challenge Cup quarter-final at home to Wigan Warriors.
