Warrington finally recorded a Good Friday victory over Salford with a 34-32 win.

The Wolves, who have lost to the Reds on the past 3 Easter weekends, scored 3 tries in a crucial ten minute spell in the second half to see off the Reds, who remain down in the lower reaches of the Super League table.

The visitors went in 12-10 down at the break, as tries from John Wilshere and Luke Robinson had gave the Reds the lead, with tries from Paul Rauhihi (pictured, above right) and Brent Grose clamping that advantage.

But the Wolves took the ascendancy in the second half, Henry Fa'afili crossing on 44 minutes, before a second try from Rauhihi, and scores for Mike Wainwright and Andy Bracek set up the winning position.

Squeezed in there was a try from Luke Dorn for Salford, who just fell short, as 3 tries in a frantic last 5 minutes almost saw them pull off an incredible comeback.

As it was, efforts from Stuart Littler, Daley Williams, and David Hodgson weren't enough, as just one successful conversion from the three saw Salford fall to a two point loss.

Had Jon Wilshere landed both, it could be the red half of this derby line up celebrating, but it wasn't, and injury hit Warrington pick up a valuable two points.
