  3. 'Warrington bossed the game'

    FT: Warrington Wolves 48-12 Leeds Rhinos

    Brian Noble

    Ex-Great Britain coach on BBC One

    Warrington were very dominant and didn't look in any trouble in the second half.

    Leeds got the start they wanted in the second half but then Warrington regained their composure and bossed the game.

  4. 'At least we can have a crack at one trophy'

    FT: Warrington Wolves 48-12 Leeds Rhinos

    Daryl Clark

    Warrington Wolves man of the match on BBC One

    I think we started slow and went behind early but I thought we reacted really well and went a long way to winning the game.

    After the disappointment of last year we've worked really hard in the off-season, you only get to win two trophies in a season so at least we can have a crack at one of them.

  5. A Challenge Cup final preview

    Friday's first round of Super 8s fixtures suddenly looks a whole lot more interesting.

    Why?

    Because Warrington Wolves host Catalans Dragons in a 19:45 kick-off at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.

    Bobby Stewart: Catalans v Warrington will be a good final. Both really solid packs, both teams have powerful outside backs, plus both teams have very good halves.

  8. Full time

    Warrington Wolves 48-12 Leeds Rhinos

    Warrington can't put up 50 points, but a Wembley trip is their reward for a dominant showing in Bolton.

    They will face Catalans Dragons in the Challenge Cup final.

    Paul Dickinson: Commentators letting them off lightly here Leeds and praising Wire loads. Defensively Leeds have been a complete and utter shambles. Awful performance. Could genuinely go down.

    lorna_sinead: Pathetic performance, shameful in fact. Lads don't even look interested. What a joke we have become.

  10. TRY: Warrington Wolves 48-12 Leeds Rhinos

    Tom Lineham

    Interception, 90-metre run, another Warrington try.

    Tired Leeds passing from left to right ends up with Liam Sutcliffe's ball being picked off by Tom Lineham, who was never in danger of being caught.

    Ben Westwood misses the conversion.

  11. Post update

    Warrington Wolves 44-12 Leeds Rhinos

    The end can't come soon enough for Leeds.

    The Rhinos have to regroup quickly after this game, with Super League survival their sole priority for the next few weeks.

    Warrington, fourth in Super League, might fancy a shot at a double on this evidence.

  12. TRY: Warrington Wolves 44-12 Leeds Rhinos

    Bryson Goodwin

    It's getting out of hand now.

    Simple passing, moving flat across the line from right to left, all the way along to Bryson Goodwin.

    A turn of pace and a fend-off is all that's required for Goodwin to barrel over for another Warrington try.

    Tyrone Roberts can't stay perfect with the boot, drilling his kick wide to his right.

  13. Post update

    Warrington Wolves 40-12 Leeds Rhinos

    What can you say about this Leeds Rhinos side?

    They are a long way off the dominant outfit of years past - a tough run in the Qualifiers and a big rebuilding effort lies ahead.

    Credit is owed to Warrington, who have been good today, but Leeds have made it easy in the second 40 minutes.

  14. TRY: Warrington Wolves 40-12 Leeds Rhinos

    Toby King, Tyrone Roberts goal

    That's the final nail in the coffin.

    Leeds fail to wrap up properly on the final tackle, allowing Warrington to get an offload away to Toby King.

    King races the rest of the way from inside his own half, selling a dummy to beat the last man and slide over.

    Tyrone Roberts makes another sublime conversion attempt. Eight out of eight today for the Aussie.

  15. PENALTY: Warrington Wolves 34-12 Leeds Rhinos

    Tyrone Roberts

    Tyrone Roberts has been outstanding with the boot today.

    He adds two more points to grow Warrington's lead to 22.

  16. 'Another quality performance from Warrington'

    Warrington Wolves 32-12 Leeds Rhinos

    John Kear

    Wales & Bradford Bulls coach on BBC One

    It's been a quality performance from Warrington Wolves and it will make for, should they get there, a fascinating final.

    Both Catalans and Warrington are very strong in that middle channel.

  17. Post update

    Warrington Wolves 32-12 Leeds Rhinos

    Warrington win a penalty in front of the Leeds posts.

    They'll look to add two points more, take some time off, and get a little closer to a date with Catalans at Wembley.

  18. Post update

    Warrington Wolves 32-12 Leeds Rhinos

    It doesn't look like Leeds have the quality to claw their way back from here.

    Warrington are still applying the lion's share of the pressure, even with their 20-point lead.

  19. TRY: Warrington Wolves 32-12 Leeds Rhinos

    Josh Charnley, Tyrone Roberts goal

    Game over?

    Daryl Clark throws a dummy, fends off another Leeds defender, then allows Josh Charnley to do the rest.

    Charnley sprints away to touch down on the right wing for his second try of the game.

    Tyrone Roberts makes an absurdly good conversion with his right boot, slicing the ball from left to right to get it through the sticks.

  20. Post update

    Warrington Wolves 26-12 Leeds Rhinos

    Swarming defence by Warrington inside the Leeds half.

    The allow only 25 metres from the first five tackles, before Richie Myler is some way off with his 40-20 attempt.

    Another chance for Warrington to put the game beyond Leeds' reach.
