Official Report / Commentary

A hat-trick of tries from winger Tom Lineham helped Warrington Wolves move to the top of the Betfred Super League with a comfortable 48-12 victory over London Broncos.

The Wolves leapfrogged local rivals St Helens to head the table on points difference before the unbeaten Saints take on Catalans Dragons in Perpignan on Saturday afternoon.

The two pacesetters will then meet next Friday in a blockbuster clash at the Totally Wicked Stadium.

As well as Lineham’s treble, Blake Austin scored twice to make it six tries in two games for the influential stand-off. 

Also on the scoresheet for the Wolves were Josh Charnley, Jason Clark, Ryan Atkins and Stefan Ratchford, who also kicked six goals.

London claimed consolation tries through Nathan Mason and Matty Gee in the second half, with Kieran Dixon kicking two goals.

 

Warrington head coach Steve Price: “It was a professional job done – nine tries to two and a really dominant display by our lads. To score the number of points we did is always pleasing.

“We were forced to defend our try line heavily in the opening stages. We kept turning them away and it shows what kind of team we have.

“The defensive work we did from the inside was fantastic. We then started to build into the game and started to play some of the stuff we are capable of doing. Overall it was a good performance.

London head coach Danny Ward: "I thought it was one of the best games we’ve played all year, as mad as that sounds after being beaten by a decent score.

“I was really happy with how the boys went. We produced some of the best stuff we’ve done with the ball, and we defended pretty well."
