WARRINGTON Wolves’ latest defeat means they have broken an unwanted club record.

The 42-6 loss to Super League’s bottom side Wakefield Trinity was The Wire’s sixth in a row – the first time they have fallen to as many defeats consecutively in the same season for more than 20 years.

The current run also includes two losses to Wigan Warriors – one in Super League and one in the Challenge Cup – as well as defeats to Castleford Tigers, Leeds Rhinos and St Helens.

It has come in the same season as Daryl Powell’s side recorded their best ever start to a Super League campaign after winning their first eight games.

It was 2002 when Warrington last lost this many games in a row in the same year under the stewardship of Steve Anderson and David Plange.

Warrington were overhauled in seven successive Super League matches in a campaign which became a battle against relegation.

That sequence included a 50-28 home drubbing to Leeds Rhinos, a 58-4 hammering at Wigan Warriors and a 20-14 home humbling by Widnes Vikings.

However, the worst string of results was 10 successive defeats crossing over seasons. This was made up of the last five matches of 2008 and the first five of 2009 under Jimmy Lowes, a period which led to the arrival of Tony Smith as head coach.
