Daryl Powell bemoans yellow card as he calls on his Warrington Wolves players to improve their discipline

Warrington Wolves went down 28-2 to St Helens tonight at the Totally Wicked Stadium.

Despite being level at 2-2 for most of the first-half, Warrington went into the break 12-2 down – that turned into a 28-2 deficit by the end of the 80 minutes, but the Wolves’ head coach Daryl Powell noted a key turning point in that first forty minutes.

“I thought we started really well and we were still in the game at half-time,” Powell said live on Sky Sports after the game.

“I disagree with the sinbinning – it was offside, really? That was disappointing and that turned the game a little bit.

“And then in the second-half we were off and we didn’t really get in the game.”

Powell also lamented his side’s drop in completion rate from the first to the second-half.

“I thought we panicked a little bit, we’ve got a lot of work to do.

“We got beat by a better team, the swings in the game went against us.

“We were up in the high 80% completion rate in the first-half but that dropped to around 50 in the second half.

“We had four offside penalties in the first-half, you want to cut that out and that’s something we need to improve.”
