Warrington clear up with six cup successes

Warrington Guardian: Warrington's cup-winning under 13s Warrington's cup-winning under 13s

A SPECTACULAR weekend for Warrington saw the club clinch six cup wins across the age groups in a variety of competitions.

The under 19s kept their treble dreams alive by adding the North West Raging Bull Senior Colts Cup to their league title – they face Eccles in the Lancs Cup final on Sunday.

At the Preston Tournament, Warrington were winners in the under 10s and under 12s, joint winners in the under eights and under 11s, while finishing runners up in the under sevens and under nines.

The under 13s side completed the trophy haul by winning the Lancashire Blacksticks Cup, beating Liverpool Collegiate 31-10 in the final.

Warrington were unable to field a team for the first pool match this season, yet went on to lift the cup – conceding only 27 points and scoring 207 in the process.

in the final, Warrington took a full-strength squad of 22 who all played a major role at various points in the season.

Taking the initiative from kick off, Warrington spun the ball along their back line for Brechan Stephenson to score and Josh Hadland added a second minutes later, converted by Callum Grieve.

Following a Liverpool score, Jake Arnold went over to take Warrington into a 17-5 lead at half time.

Liverpool replied after the break, but having withstood a spell of pressure Hadland and Stephenson crossed again, both converted by Grieve.

Warrington’s under 19s side took it to the wire to collect their second piece of silverware when going down to 12 men against Caldy.

They won the final by a single point to be crowned Raging Bull Cup champions.

Warrington have already secured the Raging Bull League title and are due to play in the Lancs Colts Cup Final against Eccles on Sunday, May 4.

First half tries came from Cam Lewis, two, Max Caldwell, and Joe Wilson to give Warrington a 22-17 advantage at the break.

But they were made to work for the win in the second half, going down to 12 men at one point.

Despite the lack of numbers on the field, Warrington scored three excellent tries through Beesley, who was also very unlucky to also be disallowed a second, Tighe, and a third by Lewis.

Caldy refused to roll over and started to stretch the Warrington defence and score some tries of their own.

With only 13 men on the pitch, Caldy closed the gap to one point but Warrington clung on to keep their treble hopes alive.
