MATTY Russell marked his first Super League start for Warrington Wolves with a killer try against Huddersfield Giants and here's the score shown in a series of stunning pictures by Warrington Guardian photographer Mike Boden.

The Scottish international, who started out with Wigan Warriors and joined Wolves in the close-season from Australian club Gold Coast Titans, accepted a pass from hooker Micky Higham and hared away from Craig Kopczak's grasp in the 71st minute, putting Wolves into a lead they never lost at the John Smith's Stadium on Sunday.

Wrong. He scored against Widnes in the pre-season friendly. You didnt mention Super League specifically.

Thanks warrington-biker. Appearances and scores in friendlies do not count in official records, but to save any confusion I've now added 'Super League' references in the story and headline. Thanks for the feedback, and we hope you liked the pictures anyway! Mike Parsons, sports editor

Great set of photos from Mike Boden Looks like we have signed a great young player, let's hope he stays injury free. He really added the missing spark on Sunday.
