Official Report / Commentary

Warrington Wolves and Catalans Dragons fought out a draw in a thrilling 22-22 Betfred Super League encounter at the Halliwell Jones stadium.

In torrential rain for the majority of the game both sides scored three tries but it was the boots of respective scrum halves Tyrone Roberts and Josh Drinkwater which proved decisive.

Both scrum halves landed five conversions - but both were also wide of the target with late drop goal attempts in a frantic finale, while Josh Charnley's last-gasp effort three minutes from time was ruled out by the video referee for a knock on.

Warrington's tries came from Charnley, Bryson Goodwin and Harvey Livett, while Tony Gigot, Michael Mcllorum and Benjamin Jullien crossed over for the visitors.

Catalans were reduced to 12-men with 12 minutes remaining when Michael Simon was sin-binned after a flare up with Charnley, but Warrington failed to make their extra man tell and it was the Catalans and Drinkwater who kept his nerve to land a penalty and level it up again at 22-22 with 10 minutes remaining.

Catalans Dragons coach Steve McNamara said: “I think it was a fair result and I thought we deserved a draw. We fought really hard and we were on a five-day turnaround from the game against Wakefield to play Warrington, so we have stayed over and I’m really proud we have got a win and a draw from two tough games.

“In the last 12 minutes we were down on the scoreboard and had a man in the sin bin but managed to get level and hold on. Warrington is a tough place to come so hopefully this result will help us secure our future in Super League."

Warrington boss Steve Price said: “I thought we created enough opportunities to win the game. We are doing a lot of good things as a group, but there are situations whether it be a penalty or error we need to address.

“I thought we played some really good footy in patches, but we released the valve and gave them opportunities. We showed a lot of resolve and character in the second half to give ourselves opportunities to win the game, but it wasn’t to be.”
