TAKE a bow Warrington Wolves hooker Danny Walker and several of his teammates for incredible defensive stats in Tuesday night's narrow loss against Salford Red Devils.

The Orford 21-year-old made a staggering 71 tackles, according to Super League information.

Walker was named vice-captain of his hometown team for this game as head coach Steve Price asked for strong leadership from him and skipper Dec Patton.

Seems the England Knights international delivered in spades, with 24 of his tackles being made out of marker.

Despite the astonishing workrate, he missed just one tackle throughout.

There's lots more interesting facts and figure around the game dug out by the club.

The 17players named had 222 first team appearances between them.

It was the least experienced Wire side on show for almost 125 years, when the team against Leeds on November 9, 1895, had 221 appearances between them.

Debutants Nathan Roebuck, Connor Wrench and Kyle Shelford all made their first-team debuts, with Cole Oakley also named on the bench for the first time.

They pick up heritage numbers 1167, 1168 and 1169 respectively. Oakley will pick up a number when he gets to play in a game.

Winger Roebuck marked his debut with a try, while stand-off Riley Dean scored his first Super League try.

Ten of the featured players had played three or less first-team games.

The average age was 21.93 years, the lowest since Wire played New Zealand ‘A’ in the 'official' last match at Wilderspool on October 26, 2003, when the average age was 21.36 years.

It is the lowest average age for a Warrington team in the Super League era.

Nine Academy products were in the 17 – skipper Dec Patton, Riley Dean, Josh Thewlis, Ellis Longstaff, Connor Wrench, Eribe Doro, Ellis Robson, Nathan Roebuck and Cole Oakley.

Only two players were retained from the previous match – Danny Walker and Matt Davis. This is the fewest since January 17, 1914, when the whole team was changed because the first-team players went on strike.

Both Walker and Davis stood up with the hooker making a staggering 71 tackles – the second most in a Super League game since Opta stats were introduced in 2003. Davis was not far behind on 61, and 18-year-old Longstaff delivering 51.
