Warrington welcomed Castleford to the Halliwell Jones Stadium knowing they needed something different after being nilled at Leeds in last week’s Round Five game.

Steve Price’s team went back to basics, and it paid off in a low scoring, but tense, arm-wrestle of a game.

Defences were on top in the opening session, but the hosts were the team applying the early pressure for the first 10 minutes or more.

After last Saturdays' superb Challenge Cup win over St Helens, the Warrington Wolves could be forgiven for poor preparation ahead of tonights Super League round twenty-seven encounter with the Salford Red Devils.

But despite the fastest of turnarounds it was essential that they backed up their cup victory with another win to assist them in their quest for second spot.

The prize for Salford could not have been bigger.

A win would lift them into third ahead of the rest of the weekends games, but a win by twenty-four points of more would see the home side go above their opponents tonight and into second spot, poised for an assault on Old Trafford.

It was a game of massive importance to both sides.

If you listened to the pundits, the bookies and the neutral fans, then there was only one side who would be lifting the Challenge Cup at the end of eighty Wembley minutes, runaway league leaders St Helens.

But this is the Cup, and it’s a funny old thing, and anything could happen.

Warrington are the side with the recent Challenge Cup pedigree having figured in five finals, winning three since, since Saints were last represented in this auspicious event.

The top two sides in Super League met in the first final of the year, with many believing that they will also meet at Old Trafford in October.

This was the fourth meeting between these two sides in 2019 with Saints having emerged victorious on every occasion, the most recent being a 30-12 win just over a fortnight ago.

Both sides ran onto the sun baked field with the neutrals hoping that it would be more competitive than it appeared on paper.

St Helens took the minor premiers crown with their win, and a Warrington Wolves loss, last weekend.

The outcome of the game was therefore much more important for the Wire who were looking to cement their second place, while Saints were playing for pride.

The two sides met as recently as round twenty, when Saints were 21-10 winners at the Halliwell-Jones, despite trailing by 4-0 at the interval and not scoring their first point until the hour mark.

Saints were looking for a hat-trick of 2019 wins against their near neighbours after also picking up a 38-12 win in round 10, in tonight's Challenge Cup dress rehearsal.

After the ‘battle of Stade Gilbert Brutus’ last weekend the home side made eight changes including the addition of a number of youngsters.

Saints made just a couple of changes to their starting line-up with Jonny Lomax and Matty Costello into the side.

It was second against fifth in the game of round fourteen as the Mend-A-Hose Jungle saw the Castleford Tigers host the Warrington Wolves.

  Warrington were looking to build on last weekend’s big win over the Huddersfield Giants, whereas the home side needed to put the disappointment of a tryless loss away at Wigan behind them.

A win would put the visitors within two points of the top of the table St Helens, and a loss could see the Tigers finish the weekend by slipping outside the top six.

With the Tigers having an indifferent season, and missing eleven first choice players, the Wolves were strong favourites for the away win.

The upwardly mobile Hull FC had an intriguing round eight game against fellow play-off contenders the Warrington Wolves, with both sides looking to build on their respective wins last weekend.

FC have lost just one game in their last six outings while Warrington have recorded just one loss in 2019, their away fixture in Perpignan.

A win would have sent FC into fourth and a fifteen point win would have put them up to third but the Wolves were unlikely to be able to make progress unless they got a big win, while St Helens upset the odds and lost at Hull KR.

The game of the twentieth round drew the SKY cameras to the DW Stadium as second placed Wigan Warriors hosted third placed Warrington Wolves with both sides looking to consolidate their top four spots ahead of the split into the Super Eights.

This is the fourth 2018 meeting between the two sides with the Wolves having been the victors on two previous occasions, the last meeting being their 23-0 win in the Challenge Cup on the 2nd June.

A rejuvinated Warriors were favourites with the bookies, but the Wolves are a side who have a recent habit of beating their hosts.

A clash between third and fourth at the business end of the season, featuring two teams hoping to step of from being league leaders in 2016 ad 2017 to Grand Final winners and champions in 2018 – this fixture promised a lot.

 

And it delivered.

 

Most observers looked at the team sheets, though, and had it down for an easy home win as Warrington fielded the side which unceremoniously ejected Wigan from the Cup last weekend, and nilled them in the process.

Warrington’s nine-match winning streak came crashing to an end when they met Wigan at St James Park today.

A see-sawing first half saw dominance switch between the two on-form sides.

Wary of what a second v third tie at Magic Weekend could produce, Wigan took the first opportunity to open the scoring by kicking a penalty.

But it was Warrington who crossed the try-line first, with Harvey Livett going over when the ball was moved across the field after Ryan Atkins was stopped in inches short in the opposite corner.

In what was drawn out as a home game for Championship table toppers Toronto Wolfpack, the Canadian side travelled to the Halliwell-Jones to take on the Warrington Wolves.

The Wolves are on a brilliant winning run which has seen them up to third in the table but their near namesakes from over the pond have only lost one game all season.

This was a big test of the ‘Super League readiness’ of the Wolfpack with both the pro- and anti- expansionists paying close attention to the outcome, and more importantly the performance.

Could Toronto follow Leigh in performing a shocking entry into the quarter finals or would the Wolves send their opponents packing back to Canada with their tail between their legs?

Opting to let the ‘train take the strain’ the Warrington Wolves players and staff arrived in Hull in good time for one of two Super League encounters to brave the ‘beast from the east’ as the match went ahead at the KCOM Stadium.

With many supporters trapped the wrong side of an M62 closure, and following a ‘do not travel’ recommendation issued by Greater Manchester Police, the visitors were forced to manage without their vocal away support.

A victory for FC would lift them above the Wolves into fifth spot but a Warrington win would see them into the top four as the two sides above them, Wigan and Widnes, met in the other fixture which had survived the arctic armageddon.

It was red hot in Warrington for the prime slot Saturday afternoon BBC TV fixture between a struggling Wolves side and a Wigan outfit having a mixed season that had them off their usual high league position.

The pre-match warm up brought another blow for the Wolves with Kevin Brown having to withdraw making way for Declan Patton to be drafted in.



The Warriors welcomed back Sam Tomkins for his first game since last September, Gelling from a six week absence and Bateman for only his second game of the season.

Would the return of some of the Wigan old guard prove too much for the out of form Wolves to secure a semi final spot?

Two tries from Joel Monaghan helped Warrington to an efficient 26-14 win over Wakefield at the Halliwell Jones Stadium and put them second in the table.



The result leaves Warrington just one point behind leaders Huddersfield, while setting back Wakefield's play off hopes to leave them in tenth place, three points outside the play off positions.

However, the match seemed more akin to a training contest rather than one which had significant Super League places at stake, in the sense that it severely lacked the intensity and flair that characterises many top level matches.

Joel Monaghan scored a try either side of half-time to help Warrington into the semi-finals of the Challenge Cup where they will face Hull.



Warrington started at a frightening pace chalking up a 20-0 lead by the 25 minute mark through Paul Wood, Trent Waterhouse, Micky Higham and Chris Briers.



The visitors scored twice before the break to spark a possible comeback but Monaghan scored his second and Lee Briers scored to put the game beyond doubt.

Hull FC gave their best performance of the season in an enthralling 26-16 victory over the Warrington Wolves at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.



Despite the return of Wolves captain Lee Briers a second-half fight back from the black and whites gave the Hull side a well-earned two points in a game dominated by strong defensive efforts from both teams.

St Helens bounced back from last week’s defeat against Leeds with a convincing 22-10 lead against Warrington Wolves at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.



Warrington endured their first back to back losses in nearly two years as they couldn’t overcome the first half advantage Saints earned a 14-0 lead through tries from Jordan Turner, Lance Hohaia and Francis Meli.
