Assistant coach Willie Poching admitted Warrington's flying start was the key their 54-6 victory over Castleford on Sunday.

Wolves were already 38-0 up at half-time leaving the Tigers no chance to stage a fightback.

Brett Hodgson finished with 22 points from two tries and seven goals while Joel Monaghan and Ryan Atkins also crossed twice with Chris Bridge landing the man of the match award.

"It was a nice way to start and a good effort to get out of the blocks like that," said Poching. "We got the rewards on the scoreboard and it was nice to see it all come together from the off.

"We tried to continue in the same way in the second half but credit to Castleford, they rolled up their sleeves and tackled well.

"But we still managed to create opportunities and score some excellent tries. Chris Bridge was explosive and punched some big holes and worked well with Joel Monaghan.

"Ryan Atkins and Chris Riley also did well together on the right wing."

Hesitant

Castleford coach Ian Millward, whose side slumped to a cup defeat at Featherstone last week, said: "We looked shocked after the cup defeat but no excuses, the better team won by a mile.

"We were very hesitant and boring in attack. We lacked enterprise and that's not the way I want to coach.

"We lost Nick Youngquest early on after a hard knock and were disjointed but that's not an excuse.

"We looked nervous and lacked confidence. The challenge for us is to get more enterprise in attack."
