Price impressed by top-of-the-table Wire

6th April 2019, 10:51 by Chris Rivers

Warrington coach Steve Price hailed his team's dominance as they beat London Broncos on Friday to move top of the Super League.

The Wire recorded a fifth straight victory to go level on points with St Helens, grabbing first place in the table thanks to their superior points difference ahead of Saints playing on Saturday evening against Catalans Dragons.

Warrington travel to St Helens next Friday and warmed up for that early-season acid test with a straightforward 48-12 win over London at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.

Winger Tom Lineham scored a hat-trick as the Wolves ran in nine tries in total, with Blake Austin continuing his fine recent form with a brace.

Josh Charnley, Jason Clark, Stefan Ratchford and Ryan Atkins also went over for the home side, with London crossing the whitewash through Nathan Mason and Matty Gee as the Broncos suffered a third straight defeat.

Price was pleased with a good night's work overall as he was able to rest a few key players and picked up no injuries as his team maintained their strong start to the season.

"It was a professional job done - nine tries to two and a really dominant display by our lads. To score the number of points we did is always pleasing," said Price.

"We were forced to defend our try line heavily in the opening stages. We kept turning them away and it shows what kind of team we have.

"The defensive work we did from the inside was fantastic. We then started to build into the game and started to play some of the stuff we are capable of doing."
