REGARDLESS of the result, Warrington Wolves will do something they have not done in more than four decades on Saturday.

Hull KR’s visit to The Halliwell Jones Stadium means The Wire will start a season with two home league games for the first time since the 1974-75 season.

Following Saturday’s victory over Leeds, they are already guaranteed to better their haul of points from that season’s opening two home games.

They were beaten 16-10 by St Helens in their opening game at Wilderspool Stadium – with Derek Whitehead kicking all of The Wire’s points – before drawing 8-8 with Widnes in a game that saw Billy Pickup cross for a try, Whitehead and Wilf Briggs kick goals and Kevin Ashcroft kick a drop goal.

In terms of individual records against Rovers, the great Brian Bevan’s four-try haul in 1960 remains the highest by any Wire player in a single game against them.

Seven years earlier, Harry Bath kicked nine goals in a game which remains the highest from a Warrington player against the Robins.

Much more recently, John Woods scored 20 points – including a try and eight goals – against Rovers in a First Division game in 1989 and is the highest number of points scored by a Warrington player in this fixture.
