Wire get season back on track with comfortable victory over Hull KR


WARRINGTON Wolves got their coronavirus pandemic disrupted season back underway with a comfortable 40-10 victory over Hull KR at Headingley despite going behind from the kick off.

Tony Smith’s Hull KR got off to a flying start with the opening try after the Wolves were caught napping from a short kick off as Ben Crooks opened the scoring.
But as they got used to the new rules and strange settings with no crowd, Warrington eased their way back into the game with first half tries from Tom Lineham and Sitalexi Akauola, both conerted by Stefan Ratchford making it 4-12 at the break.
Five minutes after the restart Anthony Gelling went over for the Wire with Ratchford missing from wide out to make it 4-16.
On 53 minutes winger Josh Charnley finished off a thrilling move in the corner, with Ratchford adding the extra to make it 4-22 and then another thrilling move on 63 minutes saw Gareth Widdop go over with Ratchford again converting to
make it pretty much game over at 4-28.
On 69 minutes Ratchford took full advantage of a defensive error to go over, converting his own try to make it 4-34.
Rovers got a late consolation when Adam Quinlan scored and Ryan Brierley converted but it was the Wolves who had the last say with a length of the field effort on the hooter as Lineham grabbed his second try with Widdop converting.
In the post match interviews Widdop, who had been linked with a move back to Australia earlier inthe week confirmed his future was at Warrington.
