Tony Smith hailed Warrington's best defensive performance of the campaign after they sauntered to a 46-4 victory over near neighbours Salford.

Richie Myler scored a brace of tries and laid on three more as the rampant Wolves came close to registering a half-century of points at the Salford City Stadium.

Smith said: "I don't think we attacked very well. I thought we were very patchy, particularly in the second half, although we did some good things in amongst it.

"We lacked a bit of control but defensively we were outstanding and that's really what we wanted.

"We've been critical of ourselves in recent times with some of the points we've conceded.

"To concede an intercept try only tells you a little bit about your defence. I think we applied ourselves a whole lot better."

Salford's interim coach Alan Hunte added: "In the first half I actually thought we competed defensively on the majority of our sets barring four but Warrington showed how clinical they can be and made every one of those four sets pay.

"We've just got to learn to be smarter and more patient. It's not been the greatest six months and the guys seem to be carrying that anxiety.

"They have got to start enjoying rugby. We just look nervous when we've got the ball."
