Warrington’s 28-22 loss away to Wakefield upset the applecart considerably.
The Wolves were predicted to win – by almost everyone – but found themselves 26-6 down at one stage against a spirited Wakefield side that had just lost their head coach of five years Chris Chester.
Willie Poching has taken over on an interim basis, and the former Trinity and Leeds forward gave the perfect audition.
One Warrington fan was bitterly upset by the result and called for the players to improve.
Left with too much to do…. It’s ok having the mentality of we can score more than you when we want to but really….. Wakefield…..? Lot of players need take a long hard look at themselves and leave come the end of season if they don’t want to be there

One Warrington fan questioned the decision to have a forward on the bench only to not bring him on.
Played the game with 16 players why name Burgess if you have no intention of bringing him on???

Another Warrington supporter called it “pathetic.”

Another Wire fan believed there were too many players who looked like they were going through the motions.
There are too many people at this club that don’t want to be there.

Another Warrington fan was bitterly upset.
Some overpaid egos, need to take a look at yourselves, shouldn't be getting beat by the 2nd worst team in the league! Absolutely garbage!

Another believed it was a poor win considering the circumstances.
This is why no one takes us seriously https://t.co/NKyUMujTYu

A neutral supporter accused the Wolves of “spaffing” money.
Endless amount of money in and blatantly outside of the salary cap and they consistently spaff it. Who’s accountable for always spaffing it? https://t.co/A7In6zrQ2U

One Warrington fan believed head coach Steve Price had disrespected Wakefield with his team selection.
Not the first time Price disrespecting the opposition with the team selection has cost us. Shouldn’t even be in a contest with Wakefield at all. https://t.co/ums9v6G6FA

A Wakefield fan was overjoyed with the result.
Outstanding performance v a team packed with stars and match winners. Not many teams that can bring a player like Austin off the bench

Another was worried towards the end.
