THE Wire’s low-scoring win over Castleford Tigers on Friday had us digging through the record books.

Interestingly enough, the last time Warrington needed so few points to beat the Yorkshiremen came in an incredibly special year for the club.

Castleford were beaten 9-2 at Wilderspool in 1948 – the year Warrington went on to win their first ever league championship.

Could that be an omen? We can only hope so!

Friday’s match was only the fourth time in the Super League era that The Wire have been involved in a game where both sides have failed to reach double figures.

The last came in 2015 when a converted Daryl Clark try and a Gareth O’Brien drop goal proved enough for a 7-6 win at Hull FC, for whom current Wire winger Tom Lineham crossed the whitewash.

The other two both came in 8-6 home defeats to Harlequins in 2008 and Castleford in 1999.
