Warrington’s home fixture against St Helens was always going to yield some rip-roaring entertainment on the field.
However, the less said about what occurred off it the better as trouble marred the streets of Warrington following the final whistle.
One St Helens fan noted that it wasn’t actual Warrington fans that threw bricks and bottles at families leaving the game on coaches but rather football fans who couldn’t manage to get tickets for the respective Liverpool and Manchester United fixtures over the weekend.
But, that doesn’t change the fact that such scenes were present outside the Halliwell Jones Stadium as victorious Saints fans left to make the journey back to their town.
St Helens had been victorious over the 80 minutes, stretching out a lead to 24-14 as the Wolves just couldn’t claw their way back into the game.
It was a result that didn’t change anything in terms of positions in the Super League table, but it could certainly be a prelude to a future play-off clash between the two.
