WARRINGTON Wolves crumbled to their second successive defeat as they were given a Good Friday mauling by Salford.
After going down at Saints last week, the Wolves suffered a first home loss of the season.
The Red Devil’s raced out of the blocks and their 28-6 half time lead never looked like being overturned by Steve Price’s lacklustre side.
Salford were 12-0 up inside as many first half minutes thanks to tries from Kris Welham and Joey Lussick, both converted by recent signing from Widnes Krisnan Inu, who also notched a penalty before the first quarter was up.
Blake Austin did get Wolves on the board at 14-6, but scores from Dan Murray and Robert Lui restored Salford’s control, either side of a further penalty by Inu.
Any hopes of a second half comeback were strangled by a further Inu penalty and then a try from Jake Bibby that put Salford 34-6 to the good.
Inu rubbed salt in the wounds with another two pointer, his eighth of the afternoon, rendering Bryson Goodwin’s 64th minute try scant consolation for a wounded Wolves who went down 12-36.
