'Ruthless' Wolves display satisfies Price

30th March 2019, 11:05 by Chris Rivers

Coach Steve Price says he was pleased with how ruthless his team were when destroying Hull FC 63-12 on Friday night.

The Wire kept up the pressure on Super League leaders St Helens with a stunning 11-try performance at the KCOM Stadium, with Blake Austin running in four tries and Josh Charnley grabbing a hat-trick.

It isn't the first time Price's men have embarrassed the Airlie Birds having beaten them 80-10 last season.

Warrington lead 34-6 at the break, with Austin completing a first-half hat-trick, Charnley scoring twice and Daryl Clark also going over.

Austin - singled out for praise by Price post-game for how well he's adapted to life in England after his off-season arrival from Australia - grabbed his fourth try soon after the restart before Charnley completed his treble, with Tom Lineham scoring a brace and Ben Murdoch-Masila also going over to complete the route.

Hull coach Lee Radford, who was missing numerous players through injury, admitted after the final hooter his team were a long off challenging at the top of Super League based on that performance.

For Price, he was extremely satisfied to see his team execute in every facet of the game as they made it seven wins out of eight Super League games.

"It was a really disciplined, ruthless 80 minutes. That's been building for a little bit now," he told BBC Sport. "From the first 20 minutes I was really proud of how we played.

"We are slowly building it to where we want to get to. You have got to give credit where it is due and I thought that was a really good performance."
