WARRINGTON Wolves' six-match Super League winning sequence has been ended by Leeds Rhinos.

Steve Price's men looked second best for most of the night, despite Danny Walker getting over the line to respond to Leeds' opening try.

But the visitors, who recorded a fourth straight win, got away to a commanding 20-6 lead by half time helped by Warrington's inability to keep hold of the ball on the night.

Leeds managed only a penalty goal in the second half and things got frantic in the last 10 minutes as Laim Sutcliffe and Robert Lui were shown yellow cards in the space of five minutes.

Josh Chanrley grabbed a brace of tries but The Wire were unable to complete the fightback in the remaining 90 seconds.
