Rampant Rhinos run riot as Warrington draw a blank


Leeds Rhinos thrashed Warrington Wolves 36-0 at Headingley on Friday to make it three wins on the spin in Super League.

The Rhinos lost their opening home game in 2020, going down 30-4 to Hull FC, but are unbeaten since, suggesting there will be no repeat of last season's flirtation with relegation.

Jack Walker's early try set them on their way to an impressive triumph over last year's Challenge Cup winners, Richie Myler also crossing in the first half against his former employers to help open up a 14-0 lead at the break.

Brad Dwyer scored Leeds' third try before Warrington were dealt a blow when Ben Murdoch-Masila was sent to the sin bin for a high tackle.

Konrad Hurrell was ruled to have grounded the ball despite the presence of two defenders as Leeds added to their tally with their opponents down to 12, while Ava Seumanufagai piled on the agony for the Wolves by barging over.

Ash Handley cut off the Rhinos' left wing to score his team's sixth and final try in the rout, with Warrington unable to even muster a point as they were shut out on their travels.
