DESPITE recording a convincing victory over Newcastle Thunder to round off the first portion of their season, Danny Evans still believes there is plenty Warrington Wolves’ academy side can improve upon.

The 68-6 victory at Woolston Rovers’ Monk Sports Club was the fifth in six games for the Wire youngsters, with stand-off Pat Irwin touching down for a hat-trick of tries.

Zack Gardner, Dylon Braddish and Adam Whalley all scored twice as Warrington ran in 12 tries in all, with 10 of them being improved by the boot of Noah Booth.

Logan Raughter also got himself on the scoresheet, with Booth rounding off the scoring with a try of his own to make it 24 points for his personal tally.

However, Evans believes the 62-point margin of victory could have been greater were it not for some unforced errors from his players.

With their next game not until June 17 when Huddersfield Giants visit Victoria Park, the academy head coach says there will be plenty of hard work between now and then.

“I was happy with the win and keeping them to single figures was pleasing,” Evans said.

“With the ball, I thought we were a bit loose and made too many unforced errors. We also got over the line three times and did not ground the ball correctly and gave away too many penalties due to ill-discipline.

“We need to get back to the standards that we have set but having said that, we scored over 60 points and played some good rugby.

“We now have a three-week break before our next game and we will be working really hard for the second part of the season.

“When we do return to action, we should get some more boys back from injury and this will make competition for places even harder which should stand us in good stead.”
