Warrington stretched their unbeaten run to eight matches with a convincing 38-4 defeat of Huddersfield Giants at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.
In-form winger Josh Charnley was again among the tries, following his four-try Ladbrokes Challenge Cup haul against Bradford, with three more to make it 10 in six games since his move back to rugby league from Sale Sharks.
Stefan Ratchford crossed twice while Tom Lineham, Joe Philbin and Harvey Livett also touched down for the hosts and Bryson Goodwin, Ratchford and Livett all kicked one conversion apiece to claim the two points and keep the Wolves third in the Super League table.
But the victory was tempered with the news that England second-row forward Ben Currie has been ruled out for the rest of the season with another serious knee injury.
Currie was injured in last week's Challenge Cup tie against Bradford Bulls and received the devastating news after travelling to see a surgeon in London on Thursday.
Huddersfield have now gone eight matches without a win to leave them deep in trouble at the wrong end of the table. Their points came from a solitary first-half try by Darnell McIntosh.
Warrington coach Steve Price said: "It was a professional display as Huddersfield came with a game plan to try and spoil the game and lay over over us and slow it down to their tempo.
"It was a credit to our guys to not get frustrated and around the 55-minute mark we started to get some speed in the ruck and had the ability to pull the gun and score a number of quick tries in succession.
"There were some good tries scored out wide with an excellent skill level and Josh scored three tries again which was very pleasing."
