Warrington Wolves 25-24 Hull FC

Last year’s Grand Finalists had even been denied their second draw of the campaign, Matt Sing’s try and Paul Cooke’s conversion to level matters on 24-24 cancelled out by the trusty boot of Lee Briers.

It could have been oh so different for the Airlie Birds, after Paul Rauhihi’s ten minutes in the bin saw Warrington go 12-0 down at the hands of Richard Whiting and Lee Radford.

But the Wolves fought their way back into the game, Michael Sullivan opening the scoring for the home side while Rauhihi was still off the pitch, and a later try from Lee Briers reduced the half-time arrears to 12-10.

Jon Clarke touched down after the break for Warrington to take the lead for the first time, and Martin Gleeson added another touch down to put the Wolves 22-12 up.

Gareth Raynor began the Hull revival, touching down to reduce Warrington’s advantage to just 22-18, before Lee Briers converted a penalty to give the home side a six-point lead.

A penalty provided the opportunity for Sing to grab a try, Cooke’s conversion drawing the two sides level, but Paul King’s knock on allowed Briers the opportunity to drop a goal and win the game.
