Patience was the key for the Warrington Wolves as they moved to the top of the Super League table with a convincing 24-10 victory away at Hull FC.

The Wolves dominated the game but Hull's valiant defence ensured they stayed 6-4 in front until an hour of almost relentless attacking finally paid off for Tony Smith's visitors.

Warrington scored four tries in a 12-minute burst that wrapped-up the game, with Chris Riley adding a second to his first-minute try and Joel Monaghan also crossed twice along with one from Micky Higham.

Riley gave Warrington a perfect start with a try when he dived over in the left corner after some fast hands moving the ball right to left.

Joe Westerman responded for Hull after 10 minutes as he crossed from close range - and Ben Crooks converted to put the hosts into the lead, but from then on they were forced to defend as Warrington dominated possession and territory.

Trent Waterhouse looked to have broken through for the Wolves but after a long video referee review it was deemed that he had been held up and Hull survived.

Pressure

Solid defence kept Hull in the lead all the way to the half, but the second 40 minutes showed no signs of a changing in the tide and wave after wave of Warrington attack continued to batter the Hull defence.

They lasted until 56 minutes when Monaghan rose superbly to gather Stefan Ratchford's perfectly flighted high ball before falling over the line, and Brett Hodgson added the extras as the visitors deservedly took the lead again.

Conceding the try seemed to knock the stuffing out of Hull, and they allowed another six minutes later as Richie Myler's bullet pass enabled Riley to dive in on the left corner again for his second score.

The floodgates had well and truly opened and now a weary-looking Hull defence could not stop Michael Monaghan bursting free and setting up Higham to dive in under the posts for the 100th try of his long career.

Joel Monaghan then scored his second try of the game in what was almost a carbon copy of his first as he rose highest to gather a floating kick before scrambling over the line and all of a sudden it was 24-6 to the Wolves.

Hull managed to stem the tide after that, and Crooks grabbed a late consolation try for their efforts but it was a deserved win in the end for Warrington as they maintained their unbeaten start to the season.
