DESPITE watching their team progress to the Challenge Cup quarter finals, there were plenty of unhappy Warrington Wolves fans following their win over Swinton Lions.

The Wire struggled for long periods against their part-time Championship opponents, eventually grinding out a 32-8 victory at Heywood Road.

> Swinton Lions 8 Warrington Wolves 32 - all the reaction from Heywood Road

Fans took to social media during and after the game to voice their displeasure with their side's display despite booking a last-eight tie with Catalans Dragons.

Here is some of what they said...

'Warrington Wolves - Warrington Guardian' on Facebook:

Mike Wrench: Forwards were good, particularly Philbin, Hill and Davis, and I'd get King and Mamo signed up to a new contract asap. But the rest just looked disjointed, like they were trying to prove they were the best individual players on the field, rather than working as a team. Swinton were good, but we definitely should have been better.

Shane O'Rourke: Mulhearn, butler, Davis and Philbs had some good drives but we are lacking some real brutality up front. Get seti a run out, it’s make or break for him this season. You can tell difference when whiddop isn’t playing, you can get away with it playing against swinton but to announce that you favour your left spine out loud is rather stupid. We need some aggressive and brutal young islanders and we need an attacking line that can play what’s in front of them. On this form we will be lucky to end fifth or sixth. Austin needs to command the line and demand ball , he’s exciting when on form . Controversial I know but getting pretty tired of lineham giving away a penalty out of stupidity then having a smile on his face.

Mark Turner: Pre season friendly level played half pace by a half interested team played for a win got a win ! Right edge is Garbage think Austin wants to go home very lackluster by everyone tbh

John Knox: Another excuse to insult fans

Graham Thompson: Shocking performance should have beaten Swinton by 60 points. ....catalan dragons will walk all over us
