Warrington ran in 10 tries as they hammered an inexperienced London side 54-20 at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.

Michael Monaghan, Chris Bridge, Rhys Williams and Stefan Ratchford all scored two tries and Brett Hodgson claimed 18 points as the Wolves bounced back superbly from their shock defeat to Widnes on Friday.

Kieran Dixon scored a first-half hat-trick to keep the Broncos, who had a host of senior players missing, in contention at the break but the home side turned on the style in the second to run away with the game.

Warrington remain fourth in the table, while defeat leaves London 12th, level with Salford and two points above bottom side Castleford, both of whom lost on Monday.

The Broncos took a surprise early lead after Chad Randall intercepted in his own half and set up Dixon to score, but the home side responded with two quick tries as Monaghan beat Liam Colbon to Richie Myler's high kick before Williams touched down on the opposite flank.

A trio of offloads enabled Dixon to score his second try for the visitors, but their good work was undone when Bridge capitalised on an Alex Hurst mistake to score before grabbing a second after exchanging passes with Monaghan.

Dixon had the last word of the half, though, completing his hat-trick after Michael Witt had surged through a gap, leaving just a Brett Hodgson conversion separating the sides at the break.

Warrington upped the pace in the second half and Hodgson widened the gap between the sides by crossing in the 44th minute.

As the game entered the final quarter, London ran out of steam and the Wolves ran riot.

Ratchford capitalised on breaks from Chris Hill and Hodgson to twice go in under the posts before Monaghan went over in the corner again and Currie powered over from inside 10 metres to make it 48-14 before Williams added his second.

The Broncos at least had the final say as Erjon Dollapi marked his first appearance with a close-range try, converted by Witt on the hooter.
