WARRINGTON Wolves’ scholarship team got back on the winning trail last night.

Having lost to Wigan Warriors last time out, Tyrone McCarthy’s under 16s side bounced back in fine style and were victorious at neighbours St Helens.

They had to hold off a late fightback from their hosts but eventually secured an 18-14 win at the Totally Wicked Stadium – their fifth victory in six outings this year.

After a tight first half, Cai Taylor-Wray crossed on the stroke of half time to give The Wire the lead, with Joseph Hickey adding the conversion.

Owen Dagnall touched down for Saints to cut Wire’s lead to just two points, but the response from McCarthy’s side was excellent.

Alfie Mather and Junior Westwood both scored tries that were converted by Hickey to put the young Wolves in command, but the home side hit back to force a nervous finish.

Rocco Talbot-Piggott and Daniel Hill crossed for late tries, but the visitors were able to close out the win.

The team are next due for action on Wednesday, July 13, when they travel to Huddersfield Giants.

Wolves: Cai Taylor-Wray; Francis Sergent, Alfie Longstaff, Arron Lindop, Ben Godwin; Joseph Hickey, Junior Westwood; Thomas McKinney, Lewis Barratt, Oliver Evans, Miller Dalton, Isaac Reid, Isaac Millachip.
