Warrington victorious against Wakefield
Wakefield Trinity suffered a fifth consecutive defeat following a 30-6 loss to Warrington Wolves.
The hosts ran in five tries to preserve their position in second place in the Betfred Super League table and leave Trinity just four points off the bottom.
Wakefield made a fine start when David Fifita found Ryan Hampshire and the full-back scored in the first minute.
But Warrington hit back to make it 16-6 at half-time courtesy of tries from Ben Currie, Josh Charnley and Mike Cooper.
Blake Austin and Jack Johnson also scored in the second half, either side of a Dec Patton penalty.
Warrington coach Steve Price said: “I thought our attack looked much better tonight and to score 30 points and to keep them scoreless for 79 minutes was very pleasing.
“We have a team who pride themselves on strong performances and I thought there were a lot of positive steps taken tonight."
Wakefield coach Chris Chester said: “We seem to be in panic mode a little bit and it’s been the story of the last five or six weeks.
“We were coming up with plays we’ve not really practised and kicking straight from a scrum with 20 minutes to go just shows where we are at at the minute."
