WOLVES marked Ben Westwood’s 400th game for the club in fine style with a convincing victory over Catalans Dragons.

Stefan Ratchford, Ryan Atkins and Tom Lineham were all on the scoresheet twice as The Wire racked up their biggest points total of the season.

Matty Russell, Peta Hiku and Dec Patton, who also kicked eight conversions, also crossed at The Halliwell Jones Stadium.

Krisnan Inu, twice, Remi Casty and Lewis Tierney crossed for the visitors.

The Wire blew their French visitors away in the first half, scorching into an 18-0 lead inside the first 15 minutes.

After Peta Hiku’s clever offload had set Ratchford clear to the line, Chris Hill produced a superb looping pass to send Russell over in the corner before Patton finished off Lineham’s break down the left wing.

Casty got Catalans on the board, punishing Wolves for giving away back-to-back penalties by twisting through the defence to score.

However, that did not put Wolves off their stride and Ryan Atkins won the battle for Patton’s kick to restore their 18-point lead.

Patton was causing chaos from the boot and a remarkable reverse kick fooled everyone except Ratchford, who caught the ball and strolled over for his second try to cap off a superb first half by giving Wire a 30-6 lead.

Catalans started the second period well as Inu profited from slack left-edge defence to score, but Wolves were soon back in the groove as Atkins scored a near carbon copy of his first effort.

Tierney scored a bizarre try to keep Catalans alive, racing through unopposed when most of the players had been caught up in a mass scuffle.

However, two tries in as many minutes for Warrington finally put the game out of reach.

Lineham picked off a pace to race home from 90 metres before Hiku latched onto a clever kick from Kevin Brown to add his name to the scoresheet.

Inu again went over in the right corner, but Lineham had the last word by acrobatically finishing a sweeping move to bring up the half-century.
