Warrington stretched their winning run against Bradford to nine games with a 32-4 victory at the Halliwell Jones stadium.

Centre Simon Grix claimed two tries for the home side, while a superb score from Australian winger Joel Monaghan was the highlight of an entertaining contest.

Warrington were holding a 14-4 second half lead when Monaghan somehow managed to pluck Richie Myler's huge cross-field kick out of the air and then touch the ball down within inches of the dead ball line.

Three tries in the final nine minutes from Chris Hill, Ryan Atkins and Grix sealed the victory as Warrington raced clear.

Full back Brett Hodgson converted just two tries to leave him one point short of passing the 1,000 point mark since moving into the Super League with Huddersfield in 2009.

The home side were quickest out of the blocks and were ahead after just two minutes when Grix crossed for the opening try of the game.

The Wolves continued to enjoy the better of the opening exchanges and increased their lead further.

Stefan Ratchford's inch-perfect kick was pounced upon by Ben Currie to claim the try and Hodgson converted to give the Wolves a 10-0 advantage.

Midway through the first half Bradford claimed their first try of the game when on the back of three successive penalties their pressure on the Wolves line finally told when Adrian Purtell touched down to cut the deficit to six points.

But Warrington claimed a crucial try two minutes before half-time when Hodgson's superb pass gave winger Chris Riley the space to sprint down the touchline and squeeze over in the corner to give the Wolves a 14-4 half time lead.

Monaghan's superb try stretched the lead to 18-4 before a late three-try blitz in the final nine minutes.
