Warrington one win away from the League Leaders’ Shield

Warrington could secure the League Leaders’ Shield next week after opening up a three-point gap at the top of Super League.

A 30-12 victory over Widnes, combined with Hull FC’s defeat to Wigan, means victory over the Warriors would see them win the trophy for the first time in five years.

They wrapped victory up by half-time. taking a 20-0 lead into the break after tries through Chris Hill, Ashton Sims and Morgan Smith.

Joe Philbin scored soon after the restart, although Joe Mellor responded to put the Vikings on the board.

A Matty Russell try soon followed though, making Corey Thompson’s late try nothing more than a consolation.

A full report will be in Monday’s League Express.
