Warrington overcome Widnes

Warrington picked up their second victory in as many weeks as their revival picked up speed with a 19-10 victory over Widnes.

A scrappy game saw the Wolves cling on to earn the two points after leading 17-4 at half-time.

Stefan Marsh gave Denis Betts’ side an early lead, however Tom Lineham, Jack Hughes and Joe Philbin all scored while a field goal from Declan Patton gave Warrington a strong lead.

To their credit, Widnes battled valiantly and did score through Charly Runciman midway through the second-half, but Warrington came away with the victory.
