Warrington 10-21 Bradford

Warrington suffered their first defeat in six games as Bradford claimed a much needed win.

Steve McNamara’s men fought hard for the points in what was ultimately a surprise victory considering Warrington’s form in recent weeks.

Chris Nero opened the scoring after a cagey opening quarter, with two goals from Paul Deacon giving Bradford an 8-0 lead.

Deacon slotted over a drop goal on the hooter to make it 9-0 at the break, emphasising just how tight the game was.

Glenn Morrison crossed for a try at the beginning of the second half, but Warrington threatened a comeback when Simon Grix scored with half hour to play.

But Terry Newton put the game beyond doubt in the final quarter, Deacon’s conversion putting them 21-6 to the good.

Despite a late effort from Chris Hicks, the Warrington fans went home unhappy after missing their chance to climb in to the top eight.
