WARRINGTON will be looking forward to a much better 2020, and head coach Andy Roberts is confident his side can provide.

A home game against Broughton Park on Saturday, kick off 2.15pm, is the team’s final game of the calendar year and will see them aim for only their second win of the season.

They were beaten 29-10 at Penrith at the weekend having gone in level at half time, with the hosts pulling away after the interval.

However, Roberts insists his side’s performance deserved more than to come away empty-handed.

“Perhaps we were disappointing in the second half and the final score probably does not truly reflect the match,” he said.

“However, I can’t fault the side’s total commitment and am sure we can only get better.”

After they had lost Craig Byrne to a shoulder injury and fallen behind to the game’s opening try, Warrington got on the board through a Darren Norman penalty before taking the lead with a try of their own.

Keith Wardley’s kick bounced favourably on the artificial surface to find Jack Morgan and the winger made yards before being brought down 10 metres from the line.

However, the ball was recycled quickly and skipper Josh Downes ran a great line to cross between the posts, with Norman converting.

Unfortunately, the lead was short-lived as on the stroke of half time, the Penrith pack rumbled over to level the scores going into the interval.

Both sides were equally matched in the opening stages of the second period and although Warrington showed great endeavour, it was without result.

Penrith then started to get on top and two quick converted tries put the win out of Warrington’s reach.

Penrith had the last word when they crossed for their fifth try in the final stages.
