WARRINGTON Wolves are into the Challenge Cup quarter finals - but were made to work hard for it.

Championship outfit Swinton Lions were worthy adversaries and led their more illustrious visitors for much of the first half.

In the end, a late flurry of points in either half gave the scoreline a more convincing look and helped The Wire book a quarter-final tie against Catalans Dragons.

Toby King kept up his rich vein of try-scoring form by crossing twice, with Tom Lineham also going over.

Blake Austin, Matty Ashton and Danny Walker also notched tries for Steve Price's side.
