Warrington (14) 38
Tries: Widdop Currie, Mamo, Charnley 3 Goals: Widdop 7
Wakefield (6) 18
Tries: Fifita, Arundel, Kershaw Goals: Lino 3

Josh Charnley scored a hat-trick of tries as Warrington bounced back from their Challenge Cup semi-final defeat to beat Wakefield in Super League.

Gareth Widdop's try put Wire ahead and Ben Currie cemented their advantage before David Fifita's reply.

Jake Mamo extended the hosts' lead and Charnley crossed for his first.

Joe Arundel gave Wakefield hope of a comeback but Charnley ran in two more tries before Lee Kershaw scored a late consolation effort before the hooter.

The victory is Warrington's sixth of the Super League campaign so far and they remain in fourth place but only a point behind all the top three, having played a game more.

Warrington Wolves have signed prop forward James Harrison from Featherstone Rovers on a two-year deal from the 2022 season.

The 24-year-old has been a regular for Rovers, helping them to 13 wins from 14 in the Championship and also winning the 1895 Cup at Wembley last month.

Harrison, whose father Karl played for Great Britain, has also played dual-registration in Super League at Leeds.

Thursday's Super League match between Warrington and Catalans has been postponed as four of the Dragons' "essential staff" have coronavirus.

The news came seven hours before the scheduled kick-off as three cases were discovered shortly before the French side were expected to fly to England.

It is not known if any players have tested positive, with "consideration" to be given to rearranging the game.

The 2021 Super League table is to be determined by win points percentage.

That decision was made to allow for the possibility of a significant number of matches being called off because of Covid-19 issues.

Hosts Warrington say match tickets will remain valid for the fixture if it is rearranged, or they can be transferred to their next home game against St Helens.

Warrington (16) 20
Tries: Ashton, Davis, Charnley Goals: Widdop 3 Drop-goals: Williams 2
Salford (12) 19
Tries: Sio 2, Lolohea Goals: Escare 2, Inu Drop-goal: Lolohea

George Williams' golden-point drop-goal gave Warrington Wolves a morale-boosting win against Salford Red Devils with the play-offs looming.

Matty Ashton, Matt Davis and Josh Charnley tries gave the Wire a first-half lead, although Ken Sio crossed at both ends of the half for Salford.

Tui Lolohea's converted try put the visitors ahead with 20 minutes to go, but Gareth Widdop's goal squared it up.

George Williams and Lolohea traded drop-goals, before Williams settled it.

With third place already assured and home advantage heading into this penultimate game of the season, this final match on home turf was a chance for Steve Price to give youth a chance.

Castleford (0) 24
Tries: Mata'utia 2, Turner, Millington Goals: Richardson 4
Warrington (26) 40
Tries: Ashton 3, Mamo 2, Wrench Goals: Ratchford 7, Widdop

Warrington Wolves survived a second-half fightback and the dismissal of Mike Cooper to end Castleford's Super League play-off hopes in a thriller.

The Wire went 32-0 up with Matty Ashton's hat-trick and two from Jake Mamo as departing Tigers boss Daryl Powell pondered a miserable farewell.

Peter Mata'utia's double, plus tries from Jordan Turner and the retiring Grant Millington gave Cas hope.

Connor Wrench finally eased Wire fears and brought Tigers' season to an end.

This loss means Hull KR and Leeds Rhinos will complete the top six, and face each other on Friday in their last league game to decide who plays Wigan or Warrington in the eliminators.

Warrington prop Mike Cooper will miss Friday's Super League play-off eliminator against Hull KR after receiving a one-match ban.

The 33-year-old was sent off following a high tackle which struck Tigers prop Liam Watts.

Cooper has now been handed the one-week penalty notice by the Rugby Football League's match review panel.

He can appeal against the Grade B charge at an independent tribunal.
