Match Report

Warrington Wolves brought down the curtain on day one of the Magic Weekend at Anfield in style with a resounding 26-14 win over Wigan Warriors.

Man of Steel front runner Blake Austin scored the decisive try as Wolves gained their third win of the season over the reigning champions, further atoning for their 2018 Grand Final defeat.

This was the ninth meeting of the two rivals in the last 18 months but the fans clearly do not believe you can have too much of a good thing as Liverpool drew a crowd of 30,057 for the three first-day matches, which goes a long way towards allaying fears of a record low turn-out.

Wigan were level at 8-8 after 52 minutes but for the second successive week faded badly as they conceded 16 points in the last 26 minutes and with it the best Magic Weekend record to Huddersfield after losing for only the third time in 13 on-the-road matches.
