Warrington Wolves Women 30 Stanningley Women 16

IN what was seen as their stiffest test so far, Warrington Wolves Women passed with flying colours.

Stanningley were touted as favourites for the Women’s Championship title but left Victoria Park having had their unbeaten start to the season unceremoniously ended.

Four second-half tries did the trick for Lee Westwood’s side as Amy Daniels, Danielle Bound, Samantha Simpson and captain Roxy Murdoch all crossing after the break.

It allowed them to convert a narrow half-time lead into two points, with Rebekah Wilson and Aimie Toher touching down in a tight first half to ensure The Wire turned around with a 10-8 lead.

Sophie Cowle was also on decent form with the boot, kicking three goals as Wolves made it back-to-back home victories.

The team are in Women’s Challenge Cup action this weekend as they welcome Wigan St Patrick’s to Victoria Park, kick off 2pm.

Their next league game comes on Saturday, May 12, when they travel to Oulton Raidettes.

Wolves Women squad: Sophie Cowle; Sally Conyers, Amy Daniels, Amber Leyland, Terri Allen; Megan Garvey, Shereen McCartney; Danielle Bound, Gill Capper, Rowanne Smalley, Roxy Murdoch, Rebekah Wilson, Megan Moore. Subs: Keira McCosh, Cat Davies, Aimie Toher, Ellie Jelves, Samantha Simpson, Kirsty Hudson, Jade Crosby
