Warrington Overwhelms St Helens

Holding a narrow 7-6 lead at halftime, Warrington dominated the second half with two early tries, including Ashton’s spectacular corner finish. Further tries from Connor Wrench, James Harrison, and George Williams, combined with Josh Thewlis’s five kicks, sealed the victory.
