Warrington edge past Hull FC to book Wembley place

Warrington edge past Hull FC to book Wembley place

Wolves 22 - 14 Hull FC

Warrington Wolves booked their place in a third Coral Challenge Cup final in four years, edging past a dogged Hull FC side at a soggy University of Bolton Stadium.

Steve Price's men trailed 8-6 late in the first period after two Marc Sneyd goals and a magnificent Bureta Faraimo try, but scores either side of the interval from Ben Currie and Toby King put the Wire in the driving seat.

Hull gave it everything, and looked poised to produce a memorable second half comeback, especially once Scott Taylor bundled over with 15 minutes to go to cut the gap to just two points.

But despite continued pressure, the Wolves held firm, and made absolutely sure of a ticket to Wembley next month when Joe Philbin scooped up a mislaid pass to go in under the posts and ensure his side will have a chance to win their first Challenge Cup for nine years.
